    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Near-total ownership of Time & Attendance market in US.
    Access to lucrative Federal space, and common in hospital and other health care settings as well.

    Cons

    Older technology, and the innovation model that would indicate.
    Leadership seemed lost when trying to connect with the 'employees'. Tone-deaf messaging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with the people who make the company work. Oh, and yelling at entire groups won't really boost morale.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This was a great experience over the summer. Learned numerous new skills and was able to expand my skill set. Managers were very helpful and no one was to busy to help. I would highly recommend this company

    Cons

    Kronos has a low turnover rate since the majority of the employees are happy with the company. Although this is a good thing, it leads to a older workforce, so for someone in their 20's you won't have many people your age to talk with.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is collaborative, fast-paced, and fun. Our CEO is highly charismatic and genuinely appreciates his employees - at town hall meetings, he will often say he wishes he can give everyone (and their families) a hug! Kronos is an industry leader and doing very well financially, and employees get to share in the excitement and success.

    Cons

    I love working for a global company, but we could be better at communicating across departments, countries, and time zones. Sometimes it's challenging to get everyone on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The more communication the better. We love Aron's vlogs and would like to hear even more from the leadership team.

    Pros

    Great management team
    Great engineers
    Great people to work with across functional areas
    Place of innovation
    Great work gets recognized and rewarded quickly
    Wise finance policies

    Cons

    None I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It maybe a good to look for ways to orient the company to be technology driven company as opposed to sales driven company - this may attract and retain top talent in the industry and advance the company growth. I believed currently there is a balanced approach in this respect, but the "message" somewhat come out as sales is the #1 priority for the company.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great CEO (Aron Ain). Open, honest, transparent culture.
    Over 30 years of financial success. New, innovative products. Multiple verticals. Global presence.
    People matter. Zero arrogance about this company and it's culture. It's all about pride in products, services and people.

    Cons

    Would like to see more international job opportunities available for internal candidates to post, etc. Starting to see this happen more often. Exciting.
    Would like to see more of an uptick in our international business - see huge opportunities to gain market share globally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of Aron Ain! He's truly an inspirational leader. I'd follow him anywhere.

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Employee population is very friendly, good health and wellness benefits, free coffee and snacks (apples, bananas, granola etc.)

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and Project mismanagement the likes of which I have never seen in my 18 year career!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation (one of Kronos core corporate Inflection points) is extinguished at onset due to a focus on only meeting the immediate task at hand, of which, there is a never ending list. Even if you have the greatest idea and solution to making these tasks turn into automated events, no one wants to listen, just keep digging the ditch by hand, even if you own a backhoe which could do the job 100x's faster!

    Pros

    There are some pretty friendly co-workers who I got to know well.

    Decent renovation of the new building.

    Cons

    Performance reviews mean nothing. It is given on a whim and how your manager feels about you those months leading to it.

    People are "encouraged" to give good ratings on the company surveys. That tells you how trustworthy the results actually are.

    Regardless of your performance, when it's time for you to go, in comes the moving boxes and out you go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Short sighted middle management. Can not see long term consequences only short term gains.
