    Pros

    Its a growing organization with high vision and passion to be the best. It has excellent products and some good leaders.

    Cons

    Never cosider the employee satisfaction. Only cosider them who has good relation with management(Managers, HR, Leadership team)

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the policy so that all employees are equally benifited. Not only the person who is close to you or working for longer period. Nor them who show up much.

    Pros

    Good infrastructure. Good pay only at the time of joining. Join Kony, only to show good CTC to other employers and then jump.

    Cons

    No, opportunities. No, proper hikes. Have to struggle a lot and argue to get more hikes. Only certain teams enjoy the benefits. Other teams are like hell, full of pressure at work, with no recognition and less hike of about 5% every year

    Advice to Management

    Please change your policies towards old employees. Else you will be loosing experienced.

    Pros

    I joined kony 2011. Being a fresher I enjoyed working on kony tool. Its easy. But that's a trap. In kony you will learn nothing. If you change switch Kony then you realise this. I am facing this after working 3 and half year. It was my blunder and I advise you not to repeat just like me. They will make you work on their rotten tool. Which does not even follow proper MVC architecture. Please don't look for money if you are fresher. Join kony if you don't have other option. After joining just start preparing for other companies preferably startups.

    Cons

    1. Kony tools sucks. Its just a gcd of all the mobile os and spa frameworks. Native application development gives lots of flexibility and control. Working with native android and iOS you will learn lots of things but in kony you will learn nothing. Here you only have to call kony apis. So no learning.
    2. HR guys are worst. They are there just to making noise in lunch area. After my resignation as per procedure they should have conducted some exit interview they don't. They does not care about employee. They are the worst team and people in kony. You can never expect any hr related work on time.
    3. No career development plan and advise. For kony you are just worker nothing else. They will never talk and think about you future growth.
    4. Hike is myth in kony and it's full of politics. If you like licking HR and Manager then its good.

    Advice to Management

    Product quality is poor. Please improve product quality.
