    Pros

    Great space - fun, dynamic, growing!
    New leadership is great, very experienced - breathe of fresh air! Totally reinvigorated the entire company and we are poised for greatness!

    Cons

    Space is constantly changing, but if you are up for a challenge this is a positive, not a negative! Huge earning potential in years to come!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you give the company the time it needs to mature, don't make short sited moves. Fully commit to development of people, turnover can be extremely costly. Loyalty and skill is winning combination!

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

    Pros

    I've been with Kony for almost three years now and the growth we've had has been amazing. We've attracted top tier leadership and retained amazing entrepreneurs. We're building a global powerhouse. Pro's include team, communication, technology, leadership, comp and work/life flexibility. I get paid well, work hard, and am able to carry on my personal life.

    Cons

    This company moves fast. I consider that a good thing, but not all would.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest management keep a very close eye on the evolving market and competition and pay extra attention to making sure that the organization is aligned to the CEO vision -- good job at this so far, just need to be sure it's kept up.

    Pros

    I recently joined Kony in the U.S. and am excited and energized by the people and the company culture. Kony is already a great company but it's definitely positioned to become even better. I'm very excited to join the team for this exciting adventure!

    Cons

    I don't see any evidence of current or potential issues, other than the usual growing pains that any company in this stage of the evolutionary process would have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to actively integrate the new executive management team and improve internal processes and efficiencies.

    Pros

    Gartner MQ leader, exciting market position, seasoned new executive team that have worked in exceptional companies and have proven track records, clear focus and goals. The environment is rapidly improving and positive momentum is building. This is not a place to come if you want a 9-5 status quo job. If you want to shape the future of mobility and work with a great team of people - Kony is the place to be.

    Cons

    It is up to each of us to manage priorities in a very fast environment. This can be overwhelming at times. As with many late stage start-ups, processes and tools are continuing to evolve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused and keep driving changes.

    Pros

    A chance to make major contributions given Kony is still a pure play independent. The new executive team is seasoned and committed to balancing performance with a strong set of ethics and values. Finally, the opportunity to play on a winning team.

    Cons

    We have a ton of competition....especially from the large companies.....to succeed everyone needs to work harder and smarter and our success is not guaranteed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have established a strong vision and strategy.....give it the time it needs to flourish....it will take time but we can get there.

    This company delivers a strong product that you can have full confidence in. We have a reputation to be proud of in the technology industry.

    Typical growing pains from a start up company to a large organization. Nothing to spend too much time on. The opportunities for improvement have been identified, and are being addressed and resolved.

    I have been working at Kony as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Great time to get involved with many different project and parts of the company. In the short time I've been at Kony I've been given more opportunities to learn and work on important projects than I ever did at my last position. Senior people want to train and grow their employees not just for their career at Kony but beyond.
    Extremely friendly/talented people who want to grow the business.

    Cons

    As to be expected, with a new exec staff there is a lot of change taking place and things are moving a million miles a minute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great enthusiasm throughout the company! Looking forward to continuing the Kony journey and watching the company grow

    A lot of changes over the last several years with regard to leadership and strategy. This has been resolved with the recent changes in leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the new Leadership Team... Keep it up! Your experience, passion, vision, and investment in people & product are exactly what we need.

    Phenomenal culture/incredible Salesforce retooling and customer excellence benchmark focus! We are going to win!

    Pros

    Incredible leadership, nicely rebranded and retooled. They hired the best C level and made many upgrades. I think there is a bright future here. Getting Tom Hogan as the CEO says everything about us and where we are going! I feel at home.

    Cons

    Moving very quickly which is actually exciting. I think people don't realize how much change towards excellence and best practices s happening here. Message of positive change needs to get delivered super quickly to the outside world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire great leaders. Your SVP of HR, CEO, Senior Director of Recruiting are amazing. Continue to brand the culture the way you are. Also the longer sales cycles and quality you are putting into your product demos and customer facing visual efforts is a new industry standard. .
