    Pros

    Great market. New leadership that came in last year (2015). co-workers were very knowledgeable and helpful. New employee on-boarding was very good

    Cons

    crowded market place. company operated in silos but new leadership was doing a great job of addressing this. no name recognition. company was spread out into three different states.

    Advice to Management

    Take more advantage of our Tax solution which has less competition then core human capital management and work force management.

    Pros

    Upward mobility was a plus. It was relatively easy to be promoted and move around the company. Smaller company mentality, everyone was approachable. A all around good place to get your food in the door.

    Cons

    Underpaid compared to competitors. Lack of inter department communication. Inferior product. Lack of proper documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee satisfaction and quality assurance of the product. If we had a better product, employees would have been happier.

    Pros

    The company cares about its people. This has been the case for the last two CEOs before the acquisition. (Not so much with the original founder.) The previous CEO cared about the people a lot and created a great culture. A new CEO came in in 2015 and carried on the passion for listening to his employees, but I felt he also brought a sense of urgency and purpose to the company. We really started to see the results of his and the entire leadership teams efforts in the second half of last year. This was just prior to being acquired by Kronos. Surprisingly the Kronos team seems very people focused as well, so I hope our positive momentum continues.

    Cons

    A lot of change. Previously not a lot of brand recognition, but I am hopeful the Kronos acquisition will address this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the great things we were doing prior to the acquisition and don't take a "not invented here" approach.
