    I worked at Kofax full-time


    Kofax has some great solutions and great people that with the new structure will be able really grow revenue in their core verticals as well as expand into new ones. The NA sales leadership is strong and so too is the support from above to drive double digit growth moving forward.


    The division of labor and credit for sales accomplishments is often skewed to make others look better than they really are in their roles.

    Advice to Management

    There are passionate, skilled performers in the organization that go unrecognized and will leave if Kofax they are not valued or under compensated.
