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

    Pros

    KnowledgeLake is a meritocracy...plain and simple. Do good work, get recognized and rewarded. I think the right workers thrive in environments like this and that's what makes KnowledgeLake a great place to grow a career. There is a high-energy buzz when you come to work, with nice perks, fun employee events and meetings and a positive work atmosphere.

    Cons

    For those who aren't used to, or aren't cut out for a high-performance culture, it can be tough to get traction.

    Advice to Management

    The executive team continues to open up and be more transparent. I urge them to continue to build that visibility for the teams. Overall, direction is clear and

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

    Pros

    Company has turned the corner! New products are being released! Great Engineering team that can get stuff done! Professional Services is now focusing on Microsoft Consulting as well as the KnowledgeLake stack.

    Cons

    Everyone is wearing multiple hats and doing several jobs. If you just want to punch the time clock and go home, probably not the right place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop new products and service offerings that address today's "Cloud First" market. Focus on products that deliver value to the customers more quickly.

    I worked at KnowledgeLake full-time

    Pros

    - Strong Product and Service Offerings
    - Stellar Training with a knowledgeable and engaging Corporate Trainer
    - Senior Leadership has 'big picture orientation' and are 'forward thinking'
    - Management truly cares about the customer experience (goal is to delight our customers)
    - Celebrate successes
    - Excellent Health Benefits (huge perk)
    - Open door policy
    - For me, hours provided good work life balance
    - Market leaders with strong technology products in their portfolio and in the pipeline
    - Embraces diversity
    - Departments, Teams, Management and Leadership are highly motivated
    - Positive energy
    - CEO keeps staff updated with 'State of the Company' bi weekly 'all office stand up meetings (15 minutes meetings) calling out successes, new product info and other new news.
    - Since this is such a state of the art, strong technology focused organization, having a background in technology, systems/computers would be a plus. However, if you do not have this background (which I didn't) this is not a deal breaker...because KL has a stellar new hire onboarding program that will help those new to KL understand their product portfolio.

    Cons

    There are no overarching cons

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work you're doing with providing stellar products and service offerings, state of the art technology and your ongoing focus on creating a strong, positive KL experience for KL clients and customers.

    I worked at KnowledgeLake (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am a new member of his team. He was very patient. Also, he gave me a lot help when I applied for university in America to pursue a master degree.

    Cons

    He is a really busy guy. So he may not show up at the meeting some time. He assigned the work to us through email at most time. So I think it may be a little less efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Actually I have only been a member of his team for two months. During this period, I think he is a very nice guy. So I have no advice.

    Keep up the good work!

  8. "Fantastic place to work."

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Family environment, great PTO and very flexible for family, wealth of SharePoint oriented knowledge to learn. There are plenty of opportunities if you have the knowledge/experience and perseverance.

    Cons

    Training is a little weak but your co-workers will make up for it. Department structure needs work to be successful. As sick as it is to say, it is almost too relaxed.

    Advice to Management

    Force senior employees to act as middle managers at least to provide a little structure and team work.

    Pros

    Great company and co-workers are focused on their job. Healthcare is pretty good, and covers most normal procedures. 401k matching program, is decent.

    Cons

    Culture has been on the downfall since KnowledgeLake was bought buy a large corporation. Only one of the four founding fathers remain working at KnowledgeLake.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to bring back the culture that made this company fantastic!

    Pros

    Great company with great technology with a unique solution for the Microsoft SharePoint market . Great atmosphere to work in. The KnowledgeLake solutions truly help many organizations leverage the SharePoint platform for what it was originally intended for...collaboration on corporate assets and information.

    Cons

    Company needs to focus more on product quality and simplifying deployment of the solution. Too many unhappy customers due to the headaches that come from the installation and configuration process.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customer satisfaction by ensuring that the products are free from defects and work as advertised. Be a product company first and a services company second...as opposed to the inverse.
