    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.

  2. Its been exciting with a great sense of belonging and pride of performance

    Pros

    The intellectual property is excellent. The Visualizer tool is unique in the market.

    Cons

    New executive seems very focused on short-term results and not really growing the company for the long-term. I don't have any inside information but that is the way it appears from the cheap seats.

    Pros

    Company was great till the new management team took over and screwed everything up

    Cons

    Management will tell you whatever they can get you to believe. Just like the reviews, they pay a lady just to sit around and write good reviews about the company

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your butts. You came in with a plan to make everything better but only made it worse. Everyone is leaving because they are unhappy and that new HR team you have is a complete joke.

    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.
