Calix Achieves 3rd Great Place To Work Certification With Purpose-Driven, Remote Culture That Supercharges Customer Success and Corporate Growth

Amid tech layoffs and sweeping back-to-office mandates, Silicon Valley-based Calix expands its fully remote workforce 50 percent, with 95 percent of its global teams rating the company as a great place to work—38 points higher than the U.S. average

SAN JOSE, CA—May 31, 2023—Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) has received its third consecutive Great Place To Work® Certification™, based on input from its global, remote workforce in the United States, Canada, and India. The prestigious award is based entirely on what employees report about their experience and level of trust in the workplace. A stellar 95 percent of employees said Calix is a great place to work—a 5 percent improvement from 2021 and 38 points higher than the average U.S. company. The two most common words that employees used to describe why Calix is a great place to work were “people” and “culture.” Additionally, an impressive 97 percent of employees reported feeling welcomed when they joined, even as Calix expanded its workforce by 50 percent in 2022.  


The purpose-driven culture at Calix continues to earn accolades and recognition for its brand and innovative portfolio, which customers leverage to transform their businesses and dominate their markets. Over 12 years and with an investment that exceeds $1 billion, Calix has built the broadband industry’s only end-to-end cloud and software platform. Today, it furthers the company’s mission of enabling broadband service providers of all sizes to simplify their business, excite their subscribers, and grow their value for members, investors, and the communities they serve. That mission is improving the lives of millions. A full 96 percent of employees report they are proud to work at Calix.


Since 2016, Calix has led its technology peers by remaining committed to an all-remote culture. Calix was recently named the #1 Best Place To Work in the Bay Area by the Q1 2023 Comparably awards. Since 2020, Calix has won 40 Comparably awards and has maintained a consistent A+ culture rating and a 4.9 rating on Glassdoor.     


“The Calix leadership team knows that success starts with people,” said Michael Weening, president and chief executive officer at Calix. "Everyone at Calix understands that company culture is formed by how we act every day toward each other and our customers, and by embracing a mindset of ‘better, better, never best.’ We are committed to supporting a winning culture by hiring slowly, setting clear goals, actively coaching, communicating transparently, and caring about the whole person—not just the business. That’s how we’ve created an aligned, purpose-driven culture that fuels success for our customers while achieving great results for our investors. Today, Calix is one of only 23 U.S. public companies with a market cap greater than $10 million to have no debt and a three-year track record of achieving 25+ percent growth while being free cash flow and net income positive over the entire period. The result is a win-win-win for our employees, customers, and investors.”
