I have been working at Kofax full-time (More than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
I've read some of the reviews, and I'm going to guess they are from the side of the company that doesn't involve IT. With that being said, this review is based on the IT side of the company aka Building 2. I work on the IT side of the company, and as my title has mentioned it's a fun and fast paced environment. Since we have to be on the cutting edge (or bleeding in some cases) of technology, we implement various technologies. This may overwhelm some people, but I see it as an opportunity to learn many things. It also makes the days go by fast.
Management has also done a good job on hiring a group of well rounded people to cover any weaknesses in the team. If one person isn't strong in a particular area, there is another person on the team who can help train on the subject. None of the departments work in silos and this is also helpful for getting challenging projects completed.
The IT group has a familial feel to it. On Thursdays, people from the different IT departments meet up for a group lunch at various locations in Irvine. It's an escape from work and a fun time to listen to how everyone's families are doing. Our HR also schedules team building events every 2-3 months and it's a good way to meet the large amount of people that work in the company. Although I haven't been to all the events, so far I've seen K1 racing, Boomers, and Knotts Berry Farm. The company Christmas party is also a nice touch for the end of the year.
I can honestly say this is one of the few places I've enjoyed working at and would encourage people to apply for IT jobs at Kofax.
From my current personal experience, I don't have any cons against the company.
