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

    Pros

    Work with extremely talented and smart people who truly want to achieve the same goal - to see Kony succeed. In the HQ office, there are weekly happy hours, monthly birthday celebrations and monthly themed office parties/lunches. Today the CEO himself hand served me a glass of red wine at happy hour!

    Cons

    If you are coming from a large corporate environment to a small company, like Kony, you will find it has it's set of challenges, but you just have to keep a positive attitude and contribute to making changes in the right direction.

    I worked at Kony full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    leader in mobile app development software for front end and back end operations.

    Cons

    Terrible management and CEO. Hire and fire mentality. Lots of churn and turnover when I was there. Enterprise customers are leaving in droves because they don't want to be locked in to a Kony and take a year to transition off to SAP or another stack vendor willing to give their middleware at low cost.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be human and more down to earth with the needs and feelings of your employees. My manager scheduled 6am calls every morning 2 weeks before quarter end just to make it painful. Is that great management or a power trip?

    I have been working at Kony full-time

    Pros

    Everyone is extremely helpful for the most part. Office environment is serious (quiet) but enjoyable; people take the time to say hello. The work is challenging and interesting, and the software products and managed services are well-respected in the market.

    Cons

    Processes are not well documented. For employees in the headquarters, the functions and processes for dealing with organization in India is not communicated. The leadership team works well together, and each SVP appears to communicate well with his group; however, the communications between groups is somewhat lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate organizational structure across the entire company. Communicate corporate initiatives to the entire company and enable better cross-group communication.
