    I have been working at Kony full-time

    Pros

    I am most impressed with the culture at Kony. I have been with them for 6+ years and the management teams put a lot of focus on employee growth, customers, community outreach and letting people work in areas they are most interested in.

    Cons

    It gets really hectic at times with product releases, big customer pursuits, and existing customers that need help from time-to-time with their big mission critical launch. It gets a little crazy, but it's fun too.

    Advice to Management

    I love the power of the Kony Software and the fact that we don't stop with just the shinny features that demo well to sell the product (like a lot of other companies in this space). It is nice to see customers build advanced app experiences with us that just aren't possible with most platforms. Please do whatever it takes to maintain this technological leadership.

    Pros

    Kony is hyper-focused on client satisfaction and helping to drive/exceed business outcomes. They have fostered a best-in-class culture that helps organically govern client satisfaction across a global client portfolio. Kony's digital product offering is regarded as industry leading by top analyst. The digital space is thriving and observing a massive investment increase. The company is in a position that sales people thrive off of... Happy Customers + Industry Leading IP + High Market Demand + Increased Market Investment

    Cons

    No cons significant enough to include; i.e. bring back the Starbucks coffee cups.

    Advice to Management

    World-class job and look forward to the future success of the company.

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

    Pros

    Solid products & technology that address clear market needs.
    Perks of a big company and culture of a small company.

    Cons

    Fast growth is a 2 sided coin, it's great and exciting but means there's always lots of work to throw around. Company is hiring, but it's hard to bring top talent at the speed at which it is growing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Fight to maintain culture as the company grows and continue to challenge everyone to stay ahead of our competition.

    Pros

    - Highly competitive compensation packages;
    - You get to work with industry experts and thought leaders;
    - Very approachable and employee-centric world-class leadership team;
    - A fast-paced environment full of opportunities;
    - Commitment to doing the right thing for our customers and employees;
    - Both, the company as an employer and the products offered have been highly recognized by the respective industry analysts;
    - A nimble company that knows how to quickly evolve in changing markets not only to remain as a leader in their core business but also to challenge new markets.
    - Flexibility. Unlimited PTO. You are trusted to get the job done and are accountable for results.

    Cons

    - Work-life balance can get unbalanced at times due to the rapid growth. You must learn how to manage this for your own situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the great work you are doing recognizing, rewarding employees and continuing to attract the best talent in the industry. This provides the right ingredients and incentives that reflect on our customer satisfaction and growth that feeds right back into the company and fuels the continued expansion. Continue to support our engagements in our communities; is nice to break away from the day-to-day to help those in need.

    Kony is an exciting place to work if you're looking for something with the feel of a "start-up," but has the stability of a mid-cap software company. The work is engaging, and there are many opportunities to learn and grow your career.

    The work environment can be demanding at times.
