    Pros

    Good compensation
    Amazing technical folks from Tech leads to freshers.

    Cons

    Literally no parking, whatever little place they have is mostly reserved. Over that the management bares no responsibility of the vehicles.
    There is no process: no formal requirements, no Junit testcases, no code reviews, no clear deadlines, no code freezes. Very ad-hoc process.

    Advice to Management

    The Business Analysts are just waste, as the product requirements they bring have no value. They are an output of comparison of competitors' products.
    Just think before start

    Pros

    Too few to remember. Kony is in a fast paced tech environment so employees learn a lot about the industry. Compensation can be good for certain roles.

    Cons

    Senior, Middle and Junior management ensure that large pool of C and D players exist in the company, which in turn makes them feel very important. Your ideas or actions will easily get trumped by a poor manager who cannot tolerate anything but his or her own way of thinking and who's threatened easily. Turnover has consistently been high and the people leaving are the A players or those can't be at HQ to suck up to their managers. The company blew through many hundreds of thousands of dollars recruiting folks who eventually got chased away by their C and D player managers.

    The company has no corporate culture but plenty of political culture. If you're unable to play the game or kiss ass in other ways or are from a different Indian tribe/community than your manager, your options for contributing to the company's success are very limited.

    Advice to Management

    The purpose of management is not suppress and oppress and beat up employees, but to help grow business, employees and careers. Run the place like a modern American business and it could become a rocket ship.

    Get rid of the tribe/village/caste/state based culture and you'll attract excellent talent instead of chasing it.
