I worked at Kana full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great area of business to be challenged and lots of interesting projects. Teams usually have high caliber people.

Cons

A clear segmentation between upper management and rest of organization. Not a team atmosphere when it comes to all levels of the organization.

Advice to Management

Get in the trenches every once in a while. Recognize key employees and you will keep them longer.

    I have been working at Kana full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom to work from home is a nice perk.
    Nice offices, snacks, fruit, soda all available.
    Flexibility if you need to work a short day as long as work is done and hours are made up elsewhere.

    Cons

    Will try to hire at the lowest possible position and salary.
    Some colleagues very weak, adds to pressure on you when they don't perform.
    Some managers will endlessly add to your workload. Can leave you swamped.
    Performance not recognized.
    Very slow progress to promotion
