    Competitive salaries, GREAT culture, meaningful work, strong leadership

    Being successful in the tech industry requires near constant change to be successful. Kronos handles these changes well but they can still be a challenge

    More and more focus now being placed on creating an engaged workforce... development opportunities, expanding commitment to charitable giving/CSR, great/robust college intern program, focus on wellness initiatives and quality talent.

    Company needs to continue to focus on operating more effectively as a global business - particularly as we expand our Cloud business.

    Pros

    Company is always fair and comp plans are second to none. Customer experience is a primary focus. Kronos has proven over a 30+ year period that they fully comprehend how to manage for the future.

    Cons

    Some outside organizations still think of time clocks when they think of us, not realizing we are a $1 Billion + organization who solves very complex workforce management challenges for customers of all sizes in all industries.

    Pros

    Company culture & integrity. Aligns closely with my personal beliefs. Great opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Big company, global, sometimes a challenge to connect with the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building future leadership. Newer team members like myself need as much access to the seasoned Kronites as possible. The tenure has created an incredibly valuable knowledge base. Success is contagious!

    Pros

    The product is fantastic - no doubt Kronos is THE leader in the industry. Culture is laid back and great for the most part. Values are said to be around family, work life balance, integrity ect. Great name brand recognition. Great money to be made.

    Cons

    work life balance is unrealistic, territories change drastically constantly, lack of understanding in the SMB space.

    Not only is Kronos helping today's business organizations find the best workforce management capabilities in the cloud, we are driving innovation in the most positive and customer centric way I have ever seen - by a long long mile. Oh - and these Kronites are some of the best people in the world, filled with excitement and value motivated spirit. What a time and what a place! Get to know Kronos - especially in the cloud, we can all learn something from this fast growing and unified global team.

    So much to do! Not enough time...is that even a con?

    Pros

    I get to spend my time on meaningful work that impacts the business - no politics, bureaucracy or red tape. People working here are smartest in the business. Leadership is outstanding, and truly care about employee development and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Still working to become a truly global company. Improving by leaps and bounds but still some ground to cover.

    It is great hearing so often from Aron. I would like to hear more from the functional leadership teams.

    Pros

    There are some free snacks and fruit

    Cons

    When you look back at couple of months worth of reviews, there is irrefutable evidence of an initiative of trying to improve the rating on Glassdoor. But that is not too surprising based off of some of the experiences I had.

    This is one of the reasons why I left. One thing will be said, but secretly the opposite is put into practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do what you say without resorting to underhanded attics!!

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company makes quality products, which is why they have continued to grow, even in down markets. They have solid leadership that sees future trends and tends to be proactive in reacting to them which also contributes to the company's success. They have put more emphasis in company perks in the last few years to address employee satisfaction. And many people who have left Kronos, have ultimately come back. No better display of a good company than that.

    Cons

    Compensation at Kronos is not as competitive as other companies. Little room for internal advancement. They often look to replace seasoned employees with younger, cheaper alternatives who end up leaving after getting a few year's experience, which seems short sighted.
