    I have been working at KnowledgeLake full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    KnowledgeLake is a meritocracy...plain and simple. Do good work, get recognized and rewarded. I think the right workers thrive in environments like this and that's what makes KnowledgeLake a great place to grow a career. There is a high-energy buzz when you come to work, with nice perks, fun employee events and meetings and a positive work atmosphere.

    Cons

    For those who aren't used to, or aren't cut out for a high-performance culture, it can be tough to get traction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive team continues to open up and be more transparent. I urge them to continue to build that visibility for the teams. Overall, direction is clear and

    Pros

    Great company and co-workers are focused on their job. Healthcare is pretty good, and covers most normal procedures. 401k matching program, is decent.

    Cons

    Culture has been on the downfall since KnowledgeLake was bought buy a large corporation. Only one of the four founding fathers remain working at KnowledgeLake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to bring back the culture that made this company fantastic!

    I have been working at KnowledgeLake

    Pros

    Family environment, great PTO and very flexible for family, wealth of SharePoint oriented knowledge to learn. There are plenty of opportunities if you have the knowledge/experience and perseverance.

    Cons

    Training is a little weak but your co-workers will make up for it. Department structure needs work to be successful. As sick as it is to say, it is almost too relaxed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Force senior employees to act as middle managers at least to provide a little structure and team work.

    I have been working at KnowledgeLake full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Foosball table. Free sodas. Dual monitors and free access to the local City Center gym.

    Cons

    Managers who seam nice but will stab you in the back, to save the company money. Hire juniors, and expect them to have senior level talent. Their code is a mess, and all they offer to the media is smoke and mirrors, about how wonderful they are, despite their code being so broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the BS you feed your employees, and tell them the truth if you are not going to keep them on.
