    The New Kony - A powerful future

    Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsI've worked at this company for over a year now and while there had been some growing pains, it has been well worth the push to get through them. This is a fun, fast paced atmosphere where thinking outside the box, and innovating is expected. As a team member I really see and feel my impact and my opinions are respected. The management and the people are what make the culture, and Kony has brought on some of the best and brightest in software, cloud, and mobility.

    ConsThere have been some growing pains, but it has all been worth the push. We've lost some good people with all the change, but are bringing in some GREAT people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue the strategy and culture transformation. I can feel the impact already. Kony is going from Good to Great! Keep up the open communication.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Exciting Times Ahead!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people, company vision, products, and executive team are all top Notch! We have an incredible market opportunity to be the leader in our space.

    ConsThere is a lot of change underway due to new leadership which is common and requires patience, flexibility, and the willingness and desire to work in a highly dynamic environment that is fast-paced. I think this time is exciting and look forward to the changes that will take place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to frequently communicate your vision, goals and progress to the employee base.

    Manager

    Manager (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsScrewy, machine gun approach to planning and marketing, and thats the positive.

    ConsReally screwy. lazy executives more concerned with perks than work. Big pay and little to no impact. Disloyalty in the ranks and no regard for the people who have worked hard over the years. The new executive team is a joke.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou are ruining Kony.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great pay, complete chaos

    Manager (Current Employee) Orlando, FL

    Prosgood pay, good benefits, and reasonable work-life balance

    Consmismanaged company, ad-hoc reactive culture. constantly chasing its tail, putting out fires, no strategy - neither business nor product.

    Advice to Senior Managementkill off the unproductive areas, and focus on ONE thing that can win. Get 12-18 months ahead of the market and go for it. It's not too late to turn this around.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Where much is given, much is expected.

    Solutions Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsWork with great people, all top of their game
    Pay is typically ahead of the market
    Great support all around, feels like a larger organization
    High Energy, in this way feels like a smaller company
    Brand new CEO. Adjustments to culture and company are positive.

    ConsFirst few months are stressful.
    Expectations are very high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more team collaboration. Most team members are spread internationally so synergy isn't as good as it could be. Lessons learned have a slow trickle down effect. Get creative and look for ways for varied teams to share, interact, & grow.

    Very Chaotic. No proper organization

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEasy to progress in a project environment with hard work.
    The experience will look great on resume. Nice exposure to mobile related technologies

    ConsNo value for the work you do outside the company.
    There is no transparency in the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop treating employees like machines. Follow a bottom up approach rather than top down.
