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

Pros

You learn a lot and some of the managers are good to work with.
I have learnt more here in the last come couple months than the last few years in the industry.

The Perks are sorta nice but this is nothing brag about when every start up in the bay has the same perks...

I guess it all depends on who your manager is and what team you work for.

Cons

WAY too many family members and close friends of the Founders in the company who don't even come close to pulling their own weight...(This doesnot apply to everyone, some managers work 13hrs a day)

This learning is But with a huge cost... Kiss your time with family, wife and kids goodbye. Kinda of rough when you are running at 110% 365 days a year.

And they pay you below the market rate.

Advice to Management

Management has gotten better but there is still room for improvement.

    Pros

    Probably you will learn a lot because they make you work on weekends and late in to the nights.

    Cons

    The managers make employees work over time all the time (weekends and very late into the nights) round the year for salaries less than industry standards. Some employees are not even informed during the hiring process about the work environment they might be facing. Employees are forced to cancel their vacation plans for the bad planning of the management while the management and people related to the management go on vacation any time. Married employees could go to the brink or into divorce when working at this company. If you have a family, don't even bother applying at this company. Some Mangers are very bad. They harass on the phone thinking they don't leave any trial behind for a law suit. Some managers are good though. They advertise on their careers section: "Take time off as needed" but they will not let you take time off even when you really need it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect. Recognize that their employees are people with families. The slave days are gone. You have to pay for what you want. What is the point of working like crazy and end up with broken families and health problems?
