    I have been working at KnowBe4 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked for KnowBe4 for almost 3 years now. I've known since day one how lucky I was to become a part of this organization. I had never worked for, or even heard of, a company that takes such great care of their employees! Since this pandemic hit, I have really realized EXACTLY how lucky I am. Transitioning to a work from home environment is usually really hard and then worrying about job safety on top of that would make it even worse. Thankfully I don't have these worries and stresses because of KnowBe4. They had us fully set up, and I mean our full office set up, at home right away. Staff meetings were rescheduled in an online meeting space before I could blink. We are able to work as efficiently as we did when we were still in the office. We are able to still interact with our co-workers and team members. They have even gone as far as to give us an extra bonus in pay to help with any cost we may have come across during this transition. I feel very fortunate to work for a place like KnowBe4, because they make it very obvious, on a day to day basis, how much they care for their employees.

    Cons

    There are no cons at all when you work for KnowBe4!

    I have been working at KnowBe4 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The HR team that did my onboarding had to be some of the kindest and most helpful people ever. They were patient and quick to answer questions. They were professional and also approachable. They worked hard to make the remote onboarding process easy despite all of the challenges that go along with having to get a brand new employee connected up and trained from afar. Alyssa and Brittan specifically were really fantastic to work with. Really, everyone was!

    Cons

    The only tricky thing was the remote aspect of onboarding. It would not be my preferred method. That said, all of my questions were answered promptly and I was never left feeling separate from the team.

    I have been working at KnowBe4 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    KnowBe4 is like no other company I've seen - I've heard about Valley-type tech companies with bean bag chairs and kambucha on tap but I've never worked anywhere like that. And frankly, I feel like companies with lists of unusual perks are not always able to keep a truly healthy culture and instead try to focus on things that sound fun or exciting to outsiders. Here are some of the things that I feel set KnowBe4 apart. We have a top notch product - with cheerfully happy customers writing into the CEO (weekly) to boast about their experience We have a good purpose and the culture of KnowBe4 is to give "FANTASTIC" service (to anyone we deal with - customers, vendors, internal co-workers, etc). We're too big to be a "family" - the truth is, you simply won't possibly know every employee (we have roughly 1000 split over 10 countries), but I've only ever experienced friendly faces passing me in the hall and have never found anyone to be approachable or unwilling to help We err on the side of generosity in a lot of ways (This stems from the CEO personally tending towards generosity and leading in that way) We have a very open culture - meaning - you hear about things well in advance. The daily company wide meeting is a rare thing - the company I worked for before had a once per year company wide meeting where they would talk about the strategic direction, company metrics etc. It was always inspiring I had wished we would get more of that - Here at KnowBe4 we have that every day and sure sometimes it's a 5 min quick business as usual type update but other days it's much more in depth and makes you feel super plugged in to what is happening. That's rare and unique and I have always appreciated it. It's fun - but it's not fun because we're sitting around telling jokes or playing video games in the office (that does not happen! :-)), it's fun because you're working hard, with other intelligent hard working people and the company culture is so heavily geared to supporting, pushing and expecting high volume of productivity and to me that's what makes it fun. When you work with people who are as hardworking, as dedicated, and who care as much as you, it makes it fun. But that's just my preference and part of the reason why I love it here so much. You want to be part of a winning team and feel you're doing worthwhile work with others who are working as hard as they possibly can and earning their keep ? That's what I think makes a company culture strong and that is something KnowBe4 is great at.

    Cons

    KnowBe4 has expanded rapidly over the past couple of years - I think in a lot of ways we still operate like that small personal family office but in other ways I'm reminded we're just growing into that larger company feel - you know less and less people in the rapidly growing departments, processes must be changed to keep up with the size of the company, change is unavoidable and constant and that's not really a bad thing necessarily - it's just more of an apparency as we grow. Or a challenge to keep an eye on. But I do feel management does a very good job at keeping people on the same page and in considering how to expand in the least disruptive way.
