    The people are always happy and helpful. They make it fun to come to work everyday. It's a company where every voice is heard and whether you're an intern or an executive they take your input into consideration.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to get things done quickly due to political processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the tremendous growth Kinnser continues to achieve, hold on to that 'startup' environment where every voice is heard.

    I have been working at Kinnser Software full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Strong leadership, big commitment to customer satisfaction, innovative development, positive culture. Over the last ten years tremendous growth has been managed very well by investing in top notch people in all departments. The facility is beautiful. Staff are given the right tools to get the job done. In software you can never rest, but you can have fun.

    Cons

    There's too much traffic during SXSW.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the rapid, yet disciplined development strategy. Let competitors overcomplicate the interface.

    Since the company is on different floors of the building it is hard to know everyone. Working from home is not an option.

    Pros

    It was my first week as a new hire; I was still drinking through the fire hose (favorite new hire pastime). I was in a meeting with the VP of Strategy, and a stranger pops in to tell a quick joke. This was my first impression of Kinnser President and CEO, Chris Hester.

    Fast-forward to Friday. Chris joined one of our new hire meetings (he seems to have a knack for being aware of little details), and he made a point to meet each of us, learn our names, and officially welcome us to the company. It was there that he casually mentioned something I’ll never forget- his personal twist on the bus analogy.

    He told us that what separates good companies from great companies is a lot like an adventurous bus ride. Often times, people panic when stormy weather hits the road or the driver needs to take a break. However, the way Kinnser runs should never change. “It doesn’t matter if someone gets off the bus or if we move seats on the bus. I truly believe we have the best approach to creating a successful business with the best people in place.”

    Ten years ago, Chris noticed that a home health agency was losing money, sacrificing time, and desperately needing reorganization. He didn’t just build a product and expect people to buy it. He listened. That is what defines Kinnser’s success--the ability to understand a common pain point and resolve it correctly. Kinnser does not directly supervise the day-to-day care of millions of Americans, but their software empowers those who do.

    --Wait, back to the bus…

    Again, I was confused at the time, but Chris clarified. He was getting off the Kinnser bus for a few days himself because his wife was expecting their second child two days away!

    Since then, I’ve realized just how good of a listener he is. Not just in regards to who I am and where I’m from, but how Chris listens and solves real world problems. So Chris, if this somehow gets to you - congratulations on your newborn son and thanks for making Kinnser a great place to work.

    Cons

    You may be working for various departments. Take this as an opportunity!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Kinnser Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I've been at Kinnser for less than a year, but what I noticed right away was that everyone is really smart and talented. Kinnser has a very intense hiring process which ensures we work with only the best of the best.

    Cons

    I feel like product priorities change too frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a mission/vision/goals/objectives that we can use to check all decisions against. If a suggested product change or direction doesn't support the overall vision, then we should delay or not do it so we can focus only on development efforts that get us where we want to go.

    Pros

    Management is very concerned with employee experience and work conditions. Recent re-evaluation of area/industry wages by the company resulted in a hefty raise as well as even better benefits package. Employees are well cared for.

    Cons

    In at least one department, promotions are blocked due to management only considering external candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your focus on hiring, training and retaining good, enthusiastic employees. Ensure that promotion from within is always a possibility.
