    Pros

    Opportunity to move to new challenges within the company
    Best in breed products and services
    True commitment to being the best employer
    Guided by excellent senior leadership

    Cons

    More work to be done to become best products internationally. The investment is there, but we still have growth to go.

    Advice to Management

    International growth is exciting and needs more in-region senior talent

    Pros

    The company and management really try hard to enable employees to have a healthy work/life balance. Many managers offer flexible schedules around personal appointments, allow working remotely from home and ensure time off requests are approved whenever possible. The company's new strategy reassures me that they're going to continue to focus on the customers needs as well as employees. Many senior managers will reach out regularly to check in, offer a congratulations on a job well done or even just say hi. This means and a lot and a simple high-five in the hallway from higher management reminds me how happy I am to be part of such a great team and company. There is plenty of opportunity for growth within the company, too.

    Cons

    As the organization grows, I often find departments can be somewhat disconnected from each other and not understand how they work together as one Kronos. This is something that the company is working on changing, but there is still opportunity here as we grow internationally.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too big and forget all the individual contributors that are helping you get there.

    Pros

    The Management at Kronos has all the right values. They truly want to create and support the best products possible. They strive for excellence in supporting their employees too and all that positivity from the top down is felt by the employees. Each of us wants to be there, we feel good about what we're selling and wants to prove that their Management style is the effective.

    Cons

    Sorry, I can't think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you!

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is the BEST! I am allowed the flexibility I need to take care of both work and home and be productive in both. I have had the opportunity of attending some great development courses offered by Kronos University and truly feel as though the company is investing in me. These opportunities have contributed to my success at Kronos thus allowing me to give back to Kronos what they have invested in me.

    Cons

    Change - there are some hiring managers who have been with Kronos for 20+ years (which is a great thing), although, educating them about the market and getting their "buy in"/flexibility regarding the type of talent we should be bringing into the company can be a struggle.

    Pros

    This is a company that is busting at the seems - great culture, great product, great strategy/vision - as a new hire, I can clearly see how I can contribute to this and that is exciting!

    Cons

    Onboarding lacked a little rigor

    Advice to Management

    Kronos is growing and expanding very quickly so transparency around this change management and our pure ability to scale up as quickly as we need to will be our biggest challenges - so over communicate, educate and guide!

    Pros

    great benefits, great work life balance. friendly environment

    Cons

    limited growth potential in career path, career development is something they are working to improve upon but managers may overlook the aspect with fear of losing a valuable employee in their department, limited promotions from within the company

    Pros

    I'll be the first to admit that I do not have the experience of working for other companies at a corporate level to offer a full comparison. Regardless, Kronos has clearly been doing something right because I've been here since 1998 and still do not have a desire to leave. The people here have a passion for what they do and they want to do it well. Just about everything I've learned in my career has come from either my experience working here or the training they have sent me to. They always support you when you want to learn more and grow. The company offers enough benefits to cover my family's needs. We lack for nothing.

    Cons

    As the company has grown, the challenge of inter-department communication has become more complex. I do believe that the leaders here at Kronos always strive to do the right thing. I don't think they always get it right the first time; however, they do seem to recognize when things really aren't working and try to adjust to fix or accommodate.

    Advice to Management

    Take good care of all the people in the field. As a former field employee, I can tell you that it was more taxing than many other positions here at Kronos. They are on the front lines with the customer and without them, all our hard work at the corporate level would be for naught.

  10. Amazing, friendly, and competent people in lumbering atmosphere.

    Pros

    Kronos is by far the best place I've worked in my career, and the main reason for that is the people. My direct manager is amazing, and the people I work with really know what they're doing. Everyone is personable, even CXO level employees; and for the most part, everyone's pretty forward thinking in general. People are rewarded and applauded for accomplishments and personal initiative, and I've almost never seen anyone here thrown under the bus.

    Cons

    The company's slow to move on projects. Nearly everything that's rushed is a break-fix. It feels like everything's a priority 1 issue, no matter what. It feels like the company grew way too quickly to get its feet under it, and everyone's work day is a game of QWOP.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to focus on the foundations that make up a good organization, and slow down on expansion.
