    Pros

    When you look at the leadership team's background of the companies they have worked at for decades before joining Kony Inc., you know this is the band wagon you want to jump on. This leadership team has a vision. They know what the competitor is thinking, and building a team and products that will outshine the next. This is a company that hires Quality over Quantity, so if you are just looking for a job...Kony is not the place for you. With this company at the beginning stages, they value each and every person's opinion of what works and doesn't work. Being part of this development is a huge step in my career and honored I was selected be apart of this journey.

    Cons

    Since the company is new... the person coming into the position expertise is immediately used and no real formal training. Its more throwing your experience into the mix and hope it rises in the oven instead of falling flat.

    Pros

    Company was great till new management team took over. They made everything 100 times worse

    Cons

    Everthing about HR, and new management. They will tell you anything they can get you to believe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your head out of your butts. You lie to employees instead of being honest, you brought in a HR team that is completely useless. You pay top dollar for a lady to write fake reviews when everyone knows the real story.

    Pros

    Great team across the board. I've been working with Kony for less than a year, and have thoroughly enjoyed my experience. It definitely feels like a start-up. Everyone wears multiple hats and is empowered to do so- which is liberating after working for a large, corporate environment. I work remotely but am in contact with my team members every day via chat, etc. Regardless of level, everyone is very accessible and down to earth, which I find particularly refreshing.

    Cons

    Can be a rough start for some- especially those that have not worked in a start-up environment and are expecting a lot of guidance.

    I have been working at Kony

    Pros

    I have been at Kony now for 6 months and it has been a challenging and exciting ride. There has been a lot of change due to a new management team but change that I feel is needed and exciting. Our new leadership team continues to make great strides in taking Kony to the next level. We continue to gain recognition in the marketplace, bring new customer wins to the table, and further enhance our products and services. The culture of Kony continues to improve and the transparent communication around our business goals, successes and failures is very much appreciated. I am excited to be here at Kony and feel my work matters and makes a difference!

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to be done and so I have a lot on my plate. Sometimes it can seem endless but understand why. Definitely pressure to perform but I am up for the challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to communicate to employees our progress, successes and failures so that we understand where we are and where we are going.

    I have been working at Kony full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast paced, client focused and leader in the industry. Decisions are made quickly and upcoming products are going to be well received in the market.

    New leadership is some of the best in the industry and will be great for partners and clients.

    Cons

    Formal training is coming up to speed, but expectation is you hit the ground running. As with any company this size you are going to be forced to figure some stuff out along the way. Most view that as a positive.
