    I have been working at Kurtosys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I started here over a year ago as a contractor and decided to become a part of the organization as an employee, and haven't once thought twice about it. The organization is very open and honest, continually providing training, either through 1X1 with their manager, online platforms, leadership training monthly, all ways to assist the employees to grow within their roles. Management gives the the employee the tools and...

    Cons

    It is a growing company with lots to get accomplished, so at times hours are long, but over all still a great work/life balance is offered.

    I worked at Kurtosys full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I spent the last 4 years of my career at Kurtosys. It's been a great experience. The culture is friendly and professional and the work/life balance is good. I received paternity leave (twice) during my time working here which is unheard of for a US company. Not a lot of micro-managing here, which is a big plus in my book. I always felt free to conduct my work in the way I thought was best (within reason of course.)

    Cons

    Maybe not the best place to work if you need someone to babysit you. Work schedule got crazy maybe once every other year. But, that's not unheard of for startups and in general the work life balance is really very good.

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

      Pros

      At Kurtosys, I've had one of the best managers of my entire career in tech. She gives me hands on personal mentoring and teachings around the process. I really feel like my manager has my back and completely trusts me, my work and my effort.

      Cons

      The product and process is quite complicated. Kurtosys is not a typical SaaS company since so much of the work we do is customizable. Production is tends to be slow and internal follow-up on tasks can be challenging.

      Advice to Management

      Management needs to hold more of the employees accountable when items aren't delivered on time.

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

      Pros

      -Growing company; keeps moving forward -Fun, flexible work environment! -Great company culture and benefits/PTO -Supportive environment and global team

      Cons

      -Fast-paced onboarding may not be for everyone. No formal training program in place, can make starting out difficult. -Some processes are being refined for increased efficiency - could take some time but definitely headed in the right direction -No 401k matching

      Advice to Management

      Please keep the forward motion going -- the transparency and openness with employees really goes a long way. Improving how new employees learn what they need to learn when they come onboard would be really helpful and would help make new employees more efficient more quickly.

      Overworked Underpaid Unappreciated

      Advice to Management

      Pay your employees well and they won't leave. I was making roughly 10k less than the average college graduate with an extremely useful degree. I left and got a 66% raise. This company will fail in time.

      A great place to build your resume. If you are a motivated young person who wants to kill themselves to get some real experience under their belt for the next stage in their career, Kurtosys is a great place to do that. You will get to work with some big-name clients and may have the opportunity to work on some new technology. Make sure you pay attention to which team you are being recruited into, if you own one of...

      In the several years that I was at Kurtosys I worked with at least 5 different products implemented in technologies ranging from classic Java on a glass fish to NodeJS, I saw the UDM become the future of the company and then a ghost from the past. While it is fantastic to work for a company that will pivot its entire technology stack twice per year; it is a problem because they manage to sell one or two clients on every...

      Advice to Management

      Your product strategy relies on a foundation of institutional knowledge to keep your clients from realizing you’ve abandoned their product and can’t afford to reimplement them in the system you care about this week. Commit to your employees, they are the curtain that hides the truth. Even if you think you can replace them with 3 people in whatever region your excited about this year. I know this suggestion will be...

      Pros

      Very valuable experience in supporting a product that theoretically makes sense and interfacing with high caliber clientele.

      Cons

      Many of the positive reviews here are so for at least one reason: The company promotes empty promises that instill false hopes in its employees. The company is addled with a high turnover rate. As an employee, one is made to feel like the company is doing you a favor by paying you anything and employing you, at all. You are then made to feel bad about being undervalued, like it is something you've done and so (my guess...

      Pros

      Flexible work schedule. Casual dress.

      Cons

      The major overarching issue with Kurtosys is that it is a 10 year old startup that is somehow still a startup. The reasons behind this are too many to leave a complete account here, but here are some of the reasons that come to mind. 1. The CEO not located in the United States creates an environment where the real 'culture' of the company is in London. The 'HQ' in New York does not get the focus, resources, and...

      Advice to Management

      Fix toxic work environment. Fix products so they can be implemented faster and cheaper, or branch into a new product area. Move CEO role to US or hire similar figurehead in NY.

      Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we have strategically decided to right size New York. New York is the company’s headquarters in name only, and we will only have 8 – 12 FTEs moving forward in that office. A location that small, shouldn’t be the headquarters of a company ...

      The company is making a serious push to be better, and making serious investments into really talented people in multiple departments. Culture of the New York office is good.Plenty of room for growth for a hard worker.

      Cons

      Some typical issues in the tech/startup space. Expanding workforce can cause company culture changes that are out of a junior members control. Global firm, many times there is little connection to workers outside of direct office/department. Some legacy aspects of the firm can cause functional/political issues. Not a company for a "work from home" sales rep. Sometimes can feel understaffed in certain departments, and...
