    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Daily 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.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    Kronos 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly be a little more aggressive in acquiring some key competitors.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Still 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.

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat your seasoned reps like they are kids and work in a sweatshop.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Interesting technical challenges.
    Good C-level management.
    Strong balance sheet and stable company.

    Cons

    Latest investors don't seem interested in long term beyond their own 4-year investment horizon, causing everyone to be eying the exits.
    Low turnover over the years has resulted in lots of senior technical people, resulting in qualified employees not being promoted because there are already too many senior people. Those talented individuals are the ones who then leave.
    Long-time employees are being pushed out in QA; apparently they value specific technical skills over knowing how the product works and how to test it and are solving the problem of being top-heavy with senior people by shoving them out.
    High pressure to deliver product by hard deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the people who actually do the work to make the company run instead of rewarding their managers. More readily reward the strong performers instead of following the salary grid.

    Pros

    Leadership 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.

    Cons

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