Approves of CEO

I have been working at Kenexa (More than a year)

Pros

Good place to start for someone looking to gain experience in the industry. Ability to work independently and set you own schedule. Given the freedom to make decisions on your own.

Cons

Extreme lack of work/life balance. Not enough response or support from management when needed. Lack of communication. Can be disorganized.

Advice to Management

Value your good employees. Take the time to give feedback. Take an interest in their helping them achieve their professional goals

    Pros

    Kenexa present some wonderfull opportunities to work with some great clients.

    Cons

    If you work remotely or for any one of their clients in an on-site role (yes, in direct contact with Kenexa's customer) be ready to feel like a "child nobody wants". Communication and management experience on major projects is severly lacking and at times hostile and condescendng when communicated from the Kenexa Project Leaders. If primary work location is anywhere outside of the Kenexa offices do not expect to have any Kenexa corporate advocates on your behalf. Very Very clique oriented and disrespectful at times.

    Advice to Management

    Please train them properly. The middle management arm on the RPO side of the house is severly lacking in the team management skills required to make your organization successful.
