This used to be a very good company to work for

Engineering (Former Employee)
Chelmsford, MA

I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 8 years

ProsFair salary, very good benefits. Good team work approach even across groups and levels until the Agile move was on. Company mission and goals were very transparent

ConsWork overload. Management has become very secretive and some so hostile to the point of making people leave. Those left behind since various layoffs hang in there in hope of the next good package is for them.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompany needs a true refresh of mid management and up. Ideas and solutions are stale and it is obvious to the product users.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Fine place to be

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

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

ProsOpportunities by industry and product line, remote work allows for flexibility, solid infrastructure, sales, and HR teams

ConsFor the industry (WFM) Kronos is a very large company, it is not as intimate as a smaller company and you do feel like a cog in the wheel

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Was great and might be again some day.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chelmsford, MA

I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWhile it was privately held it was a great place to work. Still might be some day if Aron gets it back to private again.

ConsAfter it was sold to venture capital holders everything came down to how the business looked on paper. Long term upper salary employees were outsourced or replaced to lower the bottom line. People still there are worked twice as hard with little added compensations.

No incentive to improve products - Engineering does not like to hear bad news

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 10 years

ProsExcellent benefits and pay and comfortable work environment

ConsHighly political, siloed organizations, arrogance, no incentive or will to improve products, Sr. management doesn't want to hear bad news.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to employees and hear their concerns and ideas. Pull head out of the sand and deal with problems and fix them, not delays or workarounds.

Kronos has its heart in the right place but is trying to be too many things to too many different markets and buyers.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time

ProsKronos (especially the talent management unit) has some very talented, intelligent, dedicated individuals who believe in their work and tend to be very respectful to one another... assuming they're not in the Exec suite.

ConsKronos clearly still has some great offerings in the workforce scheduling/management space but they've neglected to support & grow their talent management group and have lost some valuable resources because of this.

Decent company that is growing rapidly

Solutions Consultant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time

ProsPay is good and a fellow employees are nice to work with. Products are always evolving for the better.

ConsManagement needs help especially at the lower division levels. Tough to advance up the ladder if you don't know people or have a family tie with them.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management looks to pay more attention to the divisions and the managers that are running the separate entities.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
