An Insider's view of AvePoint

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

We have a group of employees who regularly use their lunch break to workout in the gym in our office building. Some days we'd workout in groups, take yoga or spin classes, or even orchestrate our own version of Orange Theory on the treadmills & rowers. It's a great way to relieve stress while making connections with coworkers outside of the office.
