      Pros

      They are a relatively stable company that operates primarily in a declining part of the software industry. Some middle managers are solid, although executive management is less so.

      Cons

      C-level leadership hasn't done much with the company over the last 10-15 years. The transitions over the last decade haven't done much to grow the company. Their strategy seems to be to pick up the declining businesses of competitors in order to grow the company. The vision of the company is questionable. Where are they going to be in 5 years? If you were to go to work here, where does that put you in 5 years.

      It's nice that you feel there were good parts about your tenure with us. We have some great people among our management ranks! We may disagree about what's been done to improve the company in recent years, but it is true that we operate in a fast-moving and dynamic industry that requires a keen vision for the future in order to be successful. And, we're confident in the strategy our leadership has in place to achieve our goals five years from now and beyond. We do appreciate your candor. Feedback like this helps inform how we can make Kofax an even better place to work.

      Pros

      Salary and 3 weeks PTO were pluses.

      Cons

      Sink or swim culture, extremely top-heavy and old school organization. A blame culture that’s not in-trend or competitive with other software companies. Leadership lacks empathy and displays unclear, contradictory, and often confusing directions. You are a number and are treated like one.

      Pros

      I have searched and searched...there are absolutely NONE!

      Cons

      The Kofax motto is “Work Like Tomorrow”. It’s unfortunate that the company’s “leaders” don’t practice what they preach. In this day and age, I am constantly amazed how companies like this stay in business. Their products are average at best, the executive team are dinosaurs, and the atmosphere of the workplace is below average…at best. The CEO is an out of touch narcissist that should have retired long ago. He isn’t doing this for the love of the people or the company. This is all too evident with every email he sends and when he speaks at every “all-hands” meeting. Absolutely heartless and soulless. He doesn’t recognize the people that work tirelessly, but rather babbles on incessantly about how hard he works and what he contributes to this lackluster company. He has even brought up his vacation homes and experiences. Appropriate, huh? The rest of the executive team represents this same behavior. Their compliments and acknowledgments of achievement are rare, pandering and obligatory. Solid accomplishments are usually met with raised eyebrows and follow-up speeches of how we need to do better next time. This same executive team is so ego-driven that changes and decisions are based on personal preference rather than what is best for the employees or the company. This is their way of lifting their leg on the accomplishments and work of the true employees, and taking credit. When things don’t go well, they are the first to point their fingers and not assume responsibility or fault. The marketing team is a “Mean Girls Club”. Men are overlooked, fired, or the first to be laid off. Women in non-leadership roles are treated horribly. The female executives of this team are vicious and petty to all. It would be one thing if they knew what they are doing, but I sure you, that is NOT the case. Marketing leadership plain and simply doesn’t care and is the champion of this behavior. They should have been fired for the toxic environment that she has created, long ago. It is a lawsuit(s) waiting to happen. Disgusting. Communication is horrendous here. Lots of conversations are held behind closed doors or via email with very little or no transparency. Correspondence is often last minute, if at all. Knee-jerk reactions are commonplace here more that anywhere that I have worked or even heard about. The deliverables on these reactions are ill-conceived and not based on strategy or metrics. Work Like Decades Ago, is more like it. Want to work remotely? Nope…not unless there’s a pandemic or you live more than 30 miles from the office. Interesting and fun workplace? Nope…aged and oppressive. Great benefits? Average at best…unless you are an executive. It’s unfortunate, there are a lot of great people that work here…NONE of them are on the executive team. Willing to bet that even “leadership” knows that we are all on a sinking ship. They’re just trying to hang on to their cushy gigs and ride the executive wave for as long as they can. You are much better off finding another gig or driving for Uber. This place is the WORST
