    I worked at Kinnser Software full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Kinnser hires great people who all bring something to the table. The camaraderie among most departments is very tight and the company has always had an open-door policy that fosters open communication.

    Cons

    The Technical Support Department, the largest department within the company, may as well be a different company. Not only is it isolated from the rest of the company departments by several floors, it's also such an understaffed and overwhelmed department that its employees are too tightly scheduled and overworked to partake of many of the company's team building and social events. The staff in this department have an entirely different experience working for this company than everyone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the necessary steps sooner rather than later to better staff your Technical Support Department and train its managers in order to make it a more rewarding work environment before turnover becomes a chronic issue.

    I worked at Kinnser Software full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Communication regarding direction
    -Development of the product and product management
    -Agile sessions to understand what different departments were contributing
    -Snacks and the coffee machines

    Cons

    -Not a lot of direction or career advancement
    -Direction changes quickly
    -No work from home option
    -Close tight knit groups can make a new comer feel like an outsider

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Keep the open door policy
    -There are problems in certain departments with people that are like cancer. You will lose good talent if those individuals are not promoting a team environment
    -Managers need to be sensitive to having a regular "entourage". It looks like favoritism

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

    Pros

    Kinnser values its employees' ideas and experience, work/life balance, and commitment to a fun and laid back environment and inclusive culture, no matter how successful we become.

    Cons

    The location in south-central Austin just off of Mopac can be challenging with traffic, commuting in from the north.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change the Kinnser culture. We love working here. If something doesn't directly benefit employees and current customers, don't do it.
