    Friendly colleagues

    Cons

    Management is pathetic
    Work is not challenging
    Not so transparent
    Less cultural diversity

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of smart young people, especially the ones you hire from NITs and BITS. Don't waste their potential by putting them in Delivery. Most of them end up quitting only because they are not satisfied with the work .

    Pros

    Performed well under Raj, as he concentrated on product uniqueness

    Cons

    Bad work-life balance. Makes your life miserable. calls you middle of nights and even when you are on holidays/ sick leave.

    Extremely political senior management, interested only to save their own jobs. they use juniors as fighting tool and axe them to save themselves, putting blame on juniors.

    No planning - No guts to negotiate with customer. Management on Top will agree to unrealistic timeline and make you work on holidays and sometimes 24 hours to deliver the product.

    They are some idiots in top managements who remember all there work only after 9 PM and few of them uses demeaning and unprofessional languages in their mails blaming the subordinate of doing everything wrong and sends demoralizing and demeaning text messages at middle of night commenting on personal traits.

    There are few egoists who thinks subordinate as bonded labour, they don't want subordinate to speak any other manager or team and cannot accept a "No" from subordinate for any task.

    Do not join its sinking ship, as new management is only short term vision of reducing cost and earning revenue by pleasing customer.

    They are now trying to mimic other product in market, so uniqueness of product, which gave it edge earlier, is already lost.

    Advice to Management

    There is no point in advising current management. Only way Kony can comeback is Raj takes back the reins of company as CEO. Current CEO's strategy of putting hierarchy and creating layers to stop bi-directional flow of information will not benefit company like Kony,
