    I have been working at Kinetic IT for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Kinetic IT always put people first. This is a culture shown from the CEO down to all levels. They regularly comminicate with all staff on contract wins and changes and any other company updates. They are a great company to work for and there are plenty of social functions to enjoy throughout the year. Would highly recommend working for Kinetic IT.

    Cons

    More social functions? No real cons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work.

    I worked at Kinetic IT full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Used to be good to have on your cv

    Cons

    Morale is bad. So many people want to get out. and are getting out. The management is stuck in a time warp, they do things very manually and old-fashioned, it will not help anyone start their IT carrer there. The management is a bunch of old mates and cronies who won't accept any feedback that they disagree with. People are afraid to say anything as they fear been punished. This seems to come from the CEO down and the...

    Advice to Management

    Quit - if you really care about the company's future. Get people in to run the place that actually listen to staff and customers and who know how things work in 2019 - not 1999

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

    Pros

    The majority of the people at the front line are not only very dedicated, but highly competent too. The politics aren’t as heavy as they have been at other organisations (if you don’t go looking for it). The support from some mid level management is great, particularly with flexibility and understanding, provided you don’t abuse the system. The social functions are a nice touch give staff things to look forward to....

    Cons

    The lack of career progression for staff is disheartening. Service Desk staff have been in the same position for far too long, without an avenue for advancement. Even in house mentoring and training isn’t seen as a priority, which leads us to believe that some managers don’t want people to progress, so they stay. It’s a very short sighted and selfish move to be honest. Workloads, timelines and projects impacting on business...

    Advice to Management

    We are focussing on the wrong things. Executive and Head Shed decision makers seem to be too focussed on reviewing business plans and values definitions. We almost need to go to a grassroots level, get back to basics and what got Kinetic going. The company needs to stand up to our customers more, with the approach of Rolls Royce. I.e. the quality remains long after the price is forgotten. At present, we are taking too...
