    Awful! Don't let the fact that it is a KKR company fool you...

    Pros

    Decent benefits
    Good Holiday schedule
    Vacation time is comparable
    Decent bonus structure
    Differentiation through its design firm (frog design)

    Cons

    Upper management is severely incompetent. There is constant in-fighting among the executive team. Most are too concerned with making money by bringing the company public, despite the fact that it is not ready.

    Finger-pointing is the name of the game here. The concept of ACCOUNTABILITY is absent among 80% of the company. Highly political - incompetent employees get promoted if aligned with the 'right' manager.

    Internal communication is dismal. Morale is very low. Work/life balance is non-existent. Cheap doesn't even begin to describe it.

    Processes are old and a nightmare to change. Real talent, when hired, tends to burn out quickly.

    Even KKR makes mistakes, and Aricent is one of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make ACCOUNTABILITY & INTEGRITY your priority.
