    Pros

    The products and services the company offers are top notch. A lot of talented and well-meaning people work here.

    Cons

    The company failed to keep the future in mind and as a result the business stagnated. I hear it's back on the right track now though.

    Advice to Management

    Vision

    Pros

    Pay and a resume too impressive the next employer

    Cons

    Too many to change a sinking culture that is ignorant to what clients truly demand and desire.

    Advice to Management

    Hire top reps too run the sales team who actually know something and have produced vs. the present brown nosing sales management who can't produce real results.

    Pros

    Stable Employment - There is quite a bit to do to keep busy and most other employees are decent to work with and for.

    Cons

    Revolving door with upper management, stagnant pay, inability for upward mobility or career growth, excessive work hours on a salary and no bonus structure for the constant hours and expectations to work 24/7 for clients.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more balanced work life schedule. Bring back bonus structure for excessive hours for the employees that are expected to meet client expectations 24/7.

    Pros

    There is an apparent effort to becoming more transparent across the organization. Better technology, better recognition, better cross departmental collaboration are bringing people together.

    Cons

    It takes a lot of work to initiate effective change so at times the work-life balance is thrown off. It is sometimes difficult to connect with our international divisions during regular hours.

    Pros

    Document review is not a job anyone seeks for themselves and it can be hard on the psyche long-term. Kroll treats its reviewers very well which goes a long way to improving the morale of review teams.

    Cons

    Its a little out of the way. Eden Prairie isn't too far but it's far enough to be difficult on days with bad weather.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Kroll is a big company with a good set of products and some strong perks. Becoming a bit stronger technologically.

    Cons

    Terrible office-culture, time-off policy was so difficult that it took more time to ask for time off then to actually be off from work. Expectation to work throughout the evening and every weekend, regardless of seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Better understanding of mid-level management's ability to communicate corporate direction and strategy.
