    Pros

    Positive feedback, encouragement to innovate, not satisfied with the status-quo

    Cons

    Overtime often required to complete tasks

    Advice to Management

    This is a pre-IPO company, reward your employees with stock options (all the way down the line) and make sure the job is getting done by providing the right incentives to justify the sacrifices required by the employees to get the job done.

    I worked at Kinaxis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to build Functional Expertise in supply chain domain,
    Growing company - it offers lots of opportunities to learn and pick career path in the software industry.
    A killer product in Supply Chain Domain.
    There are lots of folks around, who have been with company for 12-15 yrs in HQ, they are always enthusiastically helpful - and that is only thing working for this company- But company may not grow after a point because of cons

    Cons

    Long hours. Expensive benefits for US based employees. Very Unattractive ESPP . No RSU/ESOP. They may have problem in retaining talent. B-grades will stay but A's will move on. Just negotiate paycheck when coming in. It is impossibly hard after that, and if you like stock compensation- ask to be a VP. They have tons of them now .

    Advice to Management

    Don't let cronies from executive's previous job, join the ever growing pool of Kinaxis VPs - its a joke.
    Invest in product savvy employees and promote from within.
