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

    Pros

    The new headquarters is a great space with amazing amenities and the Kronos culture definitely supports work life balance. Along with being great employer, Kronos strongly values customers too!

    Cons

    Because of the growth at Kronos, there is opportunity to improve internal process to scale with growth.

    Pros

    They know what they are doing and driven towards excellence
    Value good managers
    Work on improving engagement at all times
    A welcoming community that feels like a place you can setup camp for awhile
    Always seems like positive intent, I don't see any malicious or destructive behavior between teams

    Cons

    Some disconnect between large development teams
    Some redundant inefficient systems for development that need updating and consolidation between all groups
    Improve cross dev team communication with all team not just inside one functional area. But again this isn't intentional just everyone busy and trying to do their best

    Advice to Management

    Improve efficient communication between team at the lower levels.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable pay and benefits.
    laid back.

    Cons

    Zero career growth for people who perform.
    Incompetent Managers, hire mediocre employees and reward them based on favoritism.
    Projects are implemented for years without any retrospect.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young professionals, who are looking to make a difference.
    You cannot expect a bad upper management to hire good employees down the chain.

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

    Pros

    Work-life balance; small company values prior to purchase by Kronos. Ability to work across departments; offer strategic guidance and make immediate impact in your department . Leader in financial service field.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is available only when you adhere to Sr. Management rules. Company representatives. will make promises at first that appear to align with Company Core Values; then reverse their decisions and will not follow through. Extremely poorly managed by current leader, former leader of company; be extremely careful with senior leadership leading the transition of financial management system inc. Individuals will not keep your work-place conversations private; will be used against you if not inline with current Leadership. Work place retaliation

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the current leadership to support the core values of Leadership with Kronos and of company chief officer. Company has opportunity to be a great place to establish a career; yet several employees are witnessing first hand the poor leadership in place.

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

    Pros

    - Investing in "cool" factor of the new headquarters office
    - Historically pays 100% or more of annual bonus plan (though it is always based on company performance)

    Cons

    - The "best place to work" title is really a lot of propaganda, it might be the best place to work for some employees, though there are huge segments of the population that are over worked, not able to take vacation and not equipped with the proper technology to successfully deliver on expectations
    - Executive leadership (not counting Aron) has become stale and top heavy. Some leaders have been at the company so long that they don't know anything but Kronos and have nothing innovative to add
    - Expect employees to be intelligent, though our intelligence is insulted with every town hall/ quarterly meeting where leadership spouts all these great statistics, when we know otherwise
    - Don't want to listen when issues are brought up, until it is too late and drastic actions need to be taken, then they are swept under the rug

    Advice to Management

    - Bring in some fresh blood in the executive level (get rid of the dinosaurs)
    - Invest in your next generation of leaders that are already in the company
    - LISTEN TO YOUR PEOPLE

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    The new facilities in Lowell, MA are beautiful - the amenities are unreal.

    Work/life balance is good.

    Hugely focused on culture, ensuring that all new hires will be a good fit for the team

    Great sense of camaraderie in Support; very team-oriented.

    Managers in this department seem to really care about their employees, which is not always the case, therefore is quite refreshing to see.

    Huge growth throughout the company - lots of profit, lots of jobs being created.

    Cons

    Processes/staffing aren't changing quickly enough given the huge popularity of certain products, which specifically negatively effects employees in support rolls.

    Products are sometimes rolled out without a clear view of what the plan is with regards to support, which HUGELY effects the quality of support that reps are able to give to customers, and creates needless stress for all involved.

    The medical coverage isn't great; I personally find United to be bit expensive considering the coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that the clients are number 1.
    Happy employees make happy clients, and having happy clients results in a better bottom line.
    Growth is great, but ONLY if it is not at the expense of the product/service that clients have come to expect from the Kronos brand.

    Pros

    Based now in Lowell, MA, the company has just moved into their new location where everything is brand new, with very much the feel you would get working for Google.

    Cons

    None that I know of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Kronos Incorporated full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kronos truly put employees first. Leaders believe happy employees are productive and it shows. I had no idea how lucky I was when I started here 5 years ago. I have had so many opportunities to do things "outside of the box" and be fully supported by management. Work/Life balance is not just a catchphrase here. The benefits continue to get better every year. I continue to look forward to the future at Kronos.

    Cons

    Right now I can't think of any. They look at all all the employee engagement surveys and do everything they can to fix issues that do come up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
