    Good Place to Work

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany invests in its sales force with training (sales as well as some technical) and management is very engaged and most (even at the VP level and higher) are pretty approachable and willing to help.

    ConsNothing unique to Kronos but there have been some growing pains in the past few years as the company has grown. Most issues seem to be getting ironed out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you are doing.

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

    Kronos is a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chelmsford, MA

    ProsThe engineering organization at Kronos has gone through a significant positive transformation over the past few years. Innovation and new ideas are encouraged, senior management is very receptive and inspires everyone in the organization to do their best, the technology is close to cutting edge. Employee engagement is taken very seriously and managers are held responsible for their teams' engagement.

    ConsKronos has a hard time recruiting great engineers because of the ongoing perception (false) that it is not exciting and cutting edge.

    Good times

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsExcellent health benefits. Lots of opportunities to move around within the company.

    ConsStuck in old way of doing things. Not too open to change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the great health benefits plan.

    A great company.

    Sales Executive (Current Employee)

    ProsKronos is a very conservative company with a conservative approach to business. However, our VC owners have assisted Kronos in expanding successfully into new international markets.

    ConsThere are very few cons. From a sales perspective, it is always about your territory and your relationship with your direct report.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPossibly be a little more aggressive in acquiring some key competitors.

    Very flexible work environment.

    Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) Tampa, FL

    ProsIf you like to telecommute, there are opportunities here. Benefits and compensation are great.

    ConsToo much outsourcing to foreign countries, IMO

    Good for short term

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood compensation
    Good HR
    Good for Individual Contributors who obey managers

    ConsToo much politics at senior level as there are very few opportunities to grow
    Agressive deliveries happening on the cost of quality

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave trust in your employees, they come to work.
    Managres should be trained in SCRUM as they expect teams to follow it.
    Only increased salaries can not make people to stay for long, job satisfaction is must.

    Working here was a mixed bag

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe compensation, benefits and time-off policies were first class, perhaps the best I've seen in my career. Some of the teams at the Engineering headquarters were great people to work with.

    ConsDaily engineering tasks were mind numbingly mundane and unchallenging. There was zero budget allocated for training and personal growth. Employee engagement was nonexistent and managers were not held responsible for their teams' engagement. The technology used was archaic unless you are comfortable being 10 to 20 years behind.

    ISR

    LDR (Current Employee) Chelmsford, MA

    ProsIt is a nice company with over 3K employees around the world. The Salary is good but commission is capped at 25K.
    so it limits you ability to exceed your previous goals.

    ConsCompany has new investors, the stress level on production just went through the roof.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat your seasoned reps like they are kids and work in a sweatshop.

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

    What a great place to work!

    Anonymous (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

    ProsFlexibility, forward thinking, casual work environment, approachable management team, fantastic benefits, supportive manager.

    ConsStill working out how work flows into the Center so there are challenges that come along with this, however, it is good experience to navigate those challenges. Because the Center takes an innovative approach there are a lot of changes that take place that require it's employees to be flexible which works for most of us but not all.

    Kronos - A Well Run and Financially Sound Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLeadership team (C-Level) is top notch with rare exception. CEO is exceptional leader able to be intense, decisive, and affable. Colleagues are all focused on working hard and in most departments there is a family -like atmosphere.

    ConsSlow to affect change. Changes are made but the process can be challenging for those who lack patience. Will be frustrating to some leaders.
