A unique and positive place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Waltham, MA

I have been working at Kenexa full-time

ProsKenexa expounds 10 principles by which they hope their employees will conduct their work, including making friends (at work), improving lives and having fun. And they pretty much actually run the company by them! And the CEO, Rudy, (as do most of his management team) actually takes the time to thoughtfully respond to emails and requests for conversations. I work at the Waltham MA offices. While the place works hard, there is genuine concern for families and a willingness to be flexible. Kudos to senior management.

ConsI guess the biggest con is that, for the work it asks people to do, Kenexa tends to underpay its work force and understaff its organizations. This coupled with the respect and flexibilty it extends to the employees has led to a workforce that is very competent, really nice people, puts in long hours (in the office or from home) but is not highly ambitous. So, the technology side of the house is no 1990s dot com. Good or bad?... you decide.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs the company grows, double down on maintaining the 10 principles. Share more stock with the employees. Bring the pay scale up to industry norms.

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