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

    Pros

    The company culture is great in Canada & USA. Family-oriented type of company / Montreal office with 300 people, 5300 worldwide. Continuous growth of revenues since...40 years !

    We work 10mn away by Express bus from Concordia metrostation, 2mn walk from Côte-des-Neiges metro (blue line)
    # Time-off policy =unlimited paid vacation like some famous US companies, Netflix but also Gsoft in Montreal :)
    # Work from home (depends on team/projects but generally from 1 to max 2 days a week all year)
    # Bonus starts from 5%, then 7%... depending on your level
    # RRSP Kronos contribution : up to 3000$/year (depends on your salary too)

    Developers & Automation Engineers are at the core of Kronos' business. When hesitating between job offers, candidates might need to think about what is the core business of this or this company, the seniority of dev teams... Banks as employers and IT consulting firms for instance do not have Software/Cloud as their core business/own product, Kronos does!

    OTHER great stuff:
    # Permanent positions only : we keep the knowledge in the company, very few consultants in Montreal + extremely low turn-over
    # Good Collective Insurance plan : starts day 1
    # Paid Tuition Fees for employees (5250$/year in Canada), the company has a Scholarship program for employee's children (500$) & a Children adoption participation plan too
    # Many discounts : Energie Cardio (80$ rebate so far), Hotels, Dell laptops, Car rental, Microsoft Home Use program...
    # French pastries on Fridays, free coffee/tea ;-)

    Cons

    1) Heavy workload at the moment - because of release of new SW Cloud Product Workforce Dimensions (100 persons involved in Montreal). Some top managers might need to have a closer eye on Work-life balance for people, especially to respect the week-ends in Canada. It is so important for the CEO himself.

    2) External Communication : It is a BtoB company, so to hire the best people we would need to communicate more externally in Canada & US, example : sponsor tech meetups events, print advertising in the metro/buses when there are ones in local areas. Say how great benefits are within Kronos! We do not communicate enough the great benefits on Kronos website in general and Career page in particular

    3) More trainings for our people, think about using latest frameworks (Angular, React, Automation Engineering...) once people have a bit less work. Do internal Hackathons mixing marketing, sales, dev... everywhere
    We could be more Agile, and let more space for innovation: the courage to lead!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great culture, be all aligned with Aron' sense of work-life balance especially on week-ends, even if we have to deliver things. It is hard sometimes but it is the company culture and vision: the CEO's vision.
