    Market leader
    Good work / life balance

    Pros

    Upper management is phenomenal. The philosophy and the work ethic at Kronos is second to none. Product innovation is a constant and growth is very consistent. Flexibility of schedule is a big plus.

    Cons

    Turnover is several organizations makes accomplishing goals difficult. Outdated and slow reporting systems. Salary increases almost non-existent despite strong company performance. Loyalty is not rewarded. Seasoned empleyees are seen as a detriment and new inexperienced (lower paid) talent is always being added.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the salary policies and bonus structure. It's time to get competitive with similar high tech companies. Good talent is being lost. Pay is not commensurate with expectations.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is a leader in the field and used by many high profile clients. Co-workers are great people that collaborate together to deliver great implementations.

    Cons

    Management in the Indy office is terrible. Management makes brash decisions and changes on a whim and has limited product knowledge. Sales sells features that the software is incapable of performing and projects often sink because of failed customer expectations. Consultants with limited product knowledge are often thrown into projects without proper product training and in turn the customer receives a poor product. Consultants are overloaded with multiple projects and unreasonable expectations. Limited benefits compared to other technology companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know the product and the challenges of implementations. If you are going to treat consultants as just numbers, don't be surprised when they seek other employment, with better benefits and higher wages. Provide consultants with more job growth. There is no incentive or career opportunities to work towards in professional services. Formulate a better bonus plan that is attainable and gives consultants incentive to perform and deliver a better product implementation.

    Pros

    Inspirational C-level leadership moving all the right levers in all the right directions. Lots of excited areas to become involved in, especially in the Cloud space, led by new senior level staff.

    Cons

    Very inadequate back-office investments to keep up with the innovations and changes.

    Good for short term

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated

    Pros

    Good compensation
    Good HR
    Good for Individual Contributors who obey managers

    Cons

    Too much politics at senior level as there are very few opportunities to grow
    Agressive deliveries happening on the cost of quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have trust in your employees, they come to work.
    Managres should be trained in SCRUM as they expect teams to follow it.
    Only increased salaries can not make people to stay for long, job satisfaction is must.

    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The compensation, benefits and time-off policies were first class, perhaps the best I've seen in my career. Some of the teams at the Engineering headquarters were great people to work with.

    Cons

    Daily engineering tasks were mind numbingly mundane and unchallenging. There was zero budget allocated for training and personal growth. Employee engagement was nonexistent and managers were not held responsible for their teams' engagement. The technology used was archaic unless you are comfortable being 10 to 20 years behind.

    Pros

    It is a nice company with over 3K employees around the world. The Salary is good but commission is capped at 25K.
    so it limits you ability to exceed your previous goals.

    Cons

    Company has new investors, the stress level on production just went through the roof.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your seasoned reps like they are kids and work in a sweatshop.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Interesting technical challenges.
    Good C-level management.
    Strong balance sheet and stable company.

    Cons

    Latest investors don't seem interested in long term beyond their own 4-year investment horizon, causing everyone to be eying the exits.
    Low turnover over the years has resulted in lots of senior technical people, resulting in qualified employees not being promoted because there are already too many senior people. Those talented individuals are the ones who then leave.
    Long-time employees are being pushed out in QA; apparently they value specific technical skills over knowing how the product works and how to test it and are solving the problem of being top-heavy with senior people by shoving them out.
    High pressure to deliver product by hard deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the people who actually do the work to make the company run instead of rewarding their managers. More readily reward the strong performers instead of following the salary grid.
