    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.


  2. Best job I have ever had, wish I came here sooner!

    Pros

    Remote work station, travel, work life balance, fun colleagues who care, recognition, learning opportunities are endless, fast paced organization, very little micro-management, complimentary health/wellness coach, excellent benefits and compensation packages.

    Cons

    Idea sharing can sometimes lead to group think
    Reward trips are impossible to earn
    Cliquey at times

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about your individual contributors
    Don't be scared to promote even your steady team members along with your best ones. There's another shining star just waiting to be noticed.
    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Kronos is in a unique position as an industry leader in Workforce Managment with a huge opportunity ahead of it in further growing its Cloud-based offerings. This huge growth and "start-up" opportunity is in the context of a large, stable company. Kronos has a great overall company culture, and its senior executives seem very committed to creating and maintaining a great place to work.

    Cons

    The shift to Cloud offerings is not fully-embraced in the organization, and there are many pain points because of this. Sometimes it feels like working for a separate organization being part of the Cloud team, when we really are one Kronos to our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be very aggresssive about having the organization embrace Cloud by creating incentives and driving accountability.

    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.

    Pros

    Working from option home is nice

    Cons

    Stay under the radar and don’t speak unless spoken to. Don't reach out to your manager for help. Don’t offer improvement suggestions; you will be considered difficult no matter how good you think you present it. If things go wrong, blame others. Management wants names when things go wrong. Management is not complimentary of work. They use negative reinforcement. Company is resistant to change and process improvement. The only way changes are brought about is after evidence of dozens of failures and even after that it’s unlikely. Departments do not talk with each other; rather they throw work over the fence without explaining how processes should work. Employees are not encouraged to educate other departments in their processes. Many departments handle work through mass email boxes or online forms so you can never figure out who is doing the work or where your request is in that process. Don’t ever do any work that lies outside of your core job. You will get in trouble and not be thanked, no matter how harmless you think it is. Little to no advancement for remote employees. Personnel don’t like to talk on the phone. Everything is handled via email.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a safe outlet where employees can confidentially report mistreatment

    Pros

    Kronos cares about their employees. This starts at the top and is embedded in all parts of the organization. They care about the development of their employees and believe that employees is what makes our products great as well as making our company a great place to work. I feel as though I am a valued member of my team and a critical part of our teams success. I also love the people that I work with. I really love working at Kronos!

    Cons

    The company cares so much about it's employees that sometimes it's difficult to make changes in the organization. There's a lot of hand holding and change can be slow as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive reinforcement. You have a group of people who believe in the company and where it's headed and who are thrilled to be working at Kronos!
