Calix

Calix, Inc. announced that it has received two new Comparably awards for the Best Leadership Teams and Best CEOs for Diversity from one of the leading culture and compensation monitoring sites in the United States. Led by chief executive officer Carl Russo—who is rated 95/100 by Calix employees—the company has achieved the highest diversity score ranking from Comparably, placing Calix in the top five percent among similarly sized companies in the U.S. To determine the diversity score, Comparably analyzed anonymous survey feedback from what Comparably defines as employees of color (non-Caucasian) working across 60,000 U.S. companies. The new awards were announced just months after Comparably named Calix one of the Best Places to Work in the San Francisco Bay Area with a coveted A+ culture rating that reflects 4.9/5 stars—and presented the company with six prestigious awards spanning product and design, engineering, and sales.
