    Pros

    Great company to work for. They care about the employees. Very friendly place employees are also very polite and say hello to each other. I enjoy coming to work each day. The work/life balance. The CEO has no problem talking to anyone of his employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work life balance doesn't work well. As a company the Work / Life balance works. Per department it depends on the manager sometimes.

    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    Lots of solid reasons to work at Kronos. In many ways this company has all of the benefits of a large corporation without most of the hassles that come with having to report figures and be controlled by stock performance on a quarterly basis.

    Cons

    The company is riddled with employees who have been working there for more than ten years. On the surface this seems amazing but behind the curtain there are a huge number of 'water-cooler rat lines' that cause havoc and can be very risky for new employees trying to navigate the waters of a company overflowing with hidden agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Look deeper at you culture with respect to those who have been on the team for many, many years so you can see all of the cancerous connections which will eventually show up as a serious class action legal issue.

    Pros

    Great company and great compensation plan.

    Cons

    They have annual RIFs in September.

    Advice to Management

    You let way too many talented people go. You really need to evaluate talent on an individual basis and not just restructure at will.

    Pros

    Kronos has a tremendous culture that promotes growth with a very strong executive group and product development team that continually keeps us the number one labor management, global organization. You can create your own career path and get the internal support you expect from a great company.

    There are no downsides to working at Kronos beyond the fact that sometimes job openings are not available.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I worked at Kronos Incorporated full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a job, depends on your perspective (where you are coming from). They will tell you it is the Best Place to Work, frequently.

    Cons

    Managers are challenged, uppers can be detached, lots of surveys to appear connected. Lots of changes not for the better (for the emps)

    Advice to Management

    Truly value and invest in your people, if you have a business direction change, be honest with your employees and train them for change. Do not just discard good people.
    Stop the silent layoffs.

    Pros

    Kronos is truly a culture of everyone trying to help everyone else. Whenever I reach out for assistance someone is ready, willing and able to help me.

    Cons

    People do tend to work a very flexible schedule, which leads to allot of energy expended trying to schedule events.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and you will continue to attract top talent.

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

    Pros

    Kronos has a lot of the same perks and benefits common with many tech/best place to work companies -- solid pay, great benefits, unique perks, cool offices (especially our new HQ), and challenging/rewarding project opportunities. Yet it's the focus on people manager development that I think really sets the company apart. Our CEO (who's awesome) would say that "everyone deserves a great manager," and the company really puts its money where its mouth is by not only providing management development courses, but by enabling employees to rate their direct manager twice a year in an effort to (1) hold managers accountable to lead in line with company beliefs and values and (2) give the people managers - of which I'm one - a clear, real-world roadmap for how they can be even better. At first this concept was a bit jarring because it's so unique (as far as I know), but a couple of years in and it's been a tangible program to make an already great place to work even better.

    Cons

    Like any other fast-growing company, the sheer volume of work and opportunity is certainly a lot. But Kronos is committed to providing the necessary resources to do our jobs well - especially if we hit road blocks and ESPECIALLY if it involves making customers happy.
