    Pros

    Empowering better home healthcare through technology--extremely satisfying on a personal level
    Ability to dramatically impact the lives of others for the better through our products
    Smart and genuinely caring leadership team
    Lots of collaboration--culture of helping each other
    Financially solid with strong momentum
    Fabulous live music poster art throughout the offices--you have to see it to believe it

    Cons

    Growing company occupies multiple floors -- a bit disjointed
    Cold Fusion?

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing what you're doing
    - Adding some mid-level management would allow execs to be more strategic more of the time and provide a level of management for staff coaching and development
    - Continue to evolve employee benefits

    I have been working at Kinnser Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    From the receptionist to the president, the employees at Kinnser are good-natured and dedicated. It feels like a company of friends. Smart & experienced. I can honestly say that everyone I work with at Kinnser is an expert at what they do. The employees are diverse. There's a broad spectrum of ages. The company is growing fast, so there's never a dull moment. But most everybody maintains a healthy work/personal life balance. We're blessed to make a software that really works, so our customers are pretty happy. Kinnser has all the benefits of growth and success – especially competitive salaries (very important!) – but without the political BS you'll find at a mega-corporation. At Kinnser, you can go in and really make a difference.

    Cons

    Kinnser is growing fast, and it's a challenge to find qualified people for new positions. Current staff members often compensate by working extra hours until additional people come on board. The company's strategic goals are very aggressive, and there's a fair amount of pressure and stress related to them, but you'll find that in any successful company. Growth has also made office space a challenge. Currently the company is spread out over three floors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't grow out of the honest business practices and customer focus that made the company successful. Don't rest on the laurels of past success. Keep innovating the products.

    Pros

    Great community supporting and creating a great product - I'm proud to be a part of it!

    Team work and collaboration is highly encouraged. Management is very approachable and all have opportunities to work closely with them.

    Work/life balance is superb. It's clear that our time is always valued.

    Cons

    Starting to feel some of the effects of the demands of keeping up with rapid growth. Management is working hard to stay on top of those needs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in people and listening to the needs of your employees. Sharing company goals and benchmarks is an excellent motivator.

    Pros

    Everything! Everyone that works here is awesome, talented and helpful. I've been here a few short weeks and felt right at home after my first day! The vibe of the office is casual but everyone is dedicated to giving 110%. It's fantastic to work with down to earth people who really care about their quality of work and the company. I cant say enough great things about Kinnser. I feel so lucky and grateful to work for such an amazing company.

    Cons

    The only "con" i can think of is that the company is split between 3 floors. But its not really a big deal.

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

    Pros

    Salary. Environment. Philosophy. People. Organization. I love working here. It's like being a knight at the round table if you will. No matter your rank or position, everyone has an equal voice on the team and the company executives are always willing to listen. The atmosphere is still that of a small company and the way employees are treated are second to none. The best part about working here is the respect for family. I've never once felt like I was having to choose between my career and my family. I actually like coming to work.

    Cons

    The only bad thing I can think of is the distance the company is from my house. The commute can be a real pain.

    I have been working at Kinnser Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is very concerned with employee experience and work conditions. Recent re-evaluation of area/industry wages by the company resulted in a hefty raise as well as even better benefits package. Employees are well cared for.

    Cons

    In at least one department, promotions are blocked due to management only considering external candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your focus on hiring, training and retaining good, enthusiastic employees. Ensure that promotion from within is always a possibility.

    I have been working at Kinnser Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at Kinnser for less than a year, but what I noticed right away was that everyone is really smart and talented. Kinnser has a very intense hiring process which ensures we work with only the best of the best.

    Cons

    I feel like product priorities change too frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a mission/vision/goals/objectives that we can use to check all decisions against. If a suggested product change or direction doesn't support the overall vision, then we should delay or not do it so we can focus only on development efforts that get us where we want to go.
