A Winning Year For AWeber

Our team has a lot to be proud of this year; we’re helping more small businesses grow, creating cool new features and expanding our integrations with other services. Not only that, we’re continuing to grow in our community and as a company.

Here are some AWesome ways AWeber was recognized this year:

EMCCC 2012 Company of the Year


A bunch of AWeber team members gathered at the Huntingdon Valley Country Club on May 17, 2012, to accept the award for the “Company of the Year” from the Eastern Montgomery County
Chamber of Commerce
earlier this year.

Philadelphia Business Journal’s Best Places to Work Competition

#11 in Medium Company Category

“The Best Places to Work contest is based entirely on how a statistically significant sample of employees anonymously rated their own companies on things like team effectiveness, trust with co-workers, alignment with goals, and trust in senior leaders, as well as recognition and benefits,” said Philadelphia Business Journal editor Sonja Sherwood. “The survey is administered by Quantum Workplace, an independent third-party surveying firm.”

So why did AWeber do so well? Maybe it’s the indoor activities available such as table tennis, foosball, Nerf bowling alley and a game room with a 100-inch HD projector hooked up to an XBO360, Wii and Bluray player. Or maybe it’s the awesome benefits, such as full health coverage and bonuses. Whatever the reason, AWeber employees are happy.

Top-Ranked Small/Medium Sized Business

Similar to the Philadelphia Business Journal’s competition, the PA Best Places to Work competition surveys employees to determine the winners. Except this one wasn’t limited to the Philadelphia area; it was a state-wide competition.

We were thrilled to be one of the best places to work in the state of Pennsylvania.
