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

    Pros

    Great product and engineering team. Innovative engineering culture.

    Cons

    - Executive management has lost focus with too many experiments with GTM model / constant re-organization - Lost key members of executive management due to personal conflict - Missed best window of opportunity to take the company public or to be acquired. Sold the company for a small fraction of what it was worth at its best - Lack of customer focus has led to loss of customer confidence - Highly political with internal strife - Very little understanding of markets outside the US - GTM talent is not valued - Increasing negative sentiment across teams - Poor work-life balance

    Kony Response

    September 3, 2019Chief Human Resources Officer

    Thank you for weighing in and sharing your thoughts about our products and innovate culture. This is core to who we are and the Mobilizers who work here. We do agree that we are regularly tweaking the go-to-market model just as all hyper-growth companies do. Regarding our acquisition by Temenos, Kony shareholders and analysts would seem to respectively disagree, with the commentary indicating this is a fair price according to industry norms, and that this is a great marriage propelling the unified organization to even greater heights in the future. We wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

    I worked at Kony full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Too few to remember. Kony is in a fast paced tech environment so employees learn a lot about the industry. Compensation can be good for certain roles.

    Cons

    Senior, Middle and Junior management ensure that large pool of C and D players exist in the company, which in turn makes them feel very important. Your ideas or actions will easily get trumped by a poor manager who cannot tolerate anything but his or her own way of thinking and who's threatened easily. Turnover has consistently been high and the people leaving are the A players or those can't be at HQ to suck up to their managers. The company blew through many hundreds of thousands of dollars recruiting folks who eventually got chased away by their C and D player managers. The company has no corporate culture but plenty of political culture. If you're unable to play the game or kiss ass in other ways or are from a different Indian tribe/community than your manager, your options for contributing to the company's success are very limited.

    I have been working at Kony full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    As a seasoned veteran of the digital banking space who has watched the industry and the space evolve and transform over the past decade, I recently decided to make an investment in my future and join the Kony team. Having watched from the sidelines as Kony has single handily disrupted the digital banking space I made the decision that, on the surface; this was the company and the vision I wanted to align with. Disrupters like Kony often look bright and shiny from the outside looking in and it was with this perspective that I conducted my due diligence and evaluated my decision to join the team. From a product, vision and company culture standpoint I was unable to shoot holes in the Kony story through this process. As I joined the Kony team, my expectations were high. I’m pleased to share with you that not only have my expectations been met, but they’ve been exceeded in a big way. Kony looks bright and shiny from the outside looking in, but its even brighter from the inside looking out. Company culture uplifting and positive based on a foundation of integrity and respect. Positivity from every team inclusive of Sales, Product, Development, Executive Management and Human Resources. The “can do” attitude from all departments is so refreshing. Nothing siloed here. Everyone works together. My experience thus far, has truly been inspiring. A collaborative environment, accompanied by enthusiasm is a win-win, if you ask me. I feel that Kony is prepared and well positioned to continue to scale this model and do so with speed, which is no easy task. I couldn’t be any more excited to be part of such a great team and exciting company. Looking forward to many successes with Kony in the coming years!!

    I have been working at Kony full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fast-paced and growing quickly, Kony has position itself to be a major digital player, competing against Oracle, Microsoft and IBM. Great work environment, although space within the office is getting cramped but that comes with growth. Amazing C-level executives with a lot of experience in doing business on an accelerated growth plan. Opportunity to evolve with the company as new products and services are offered almost every quarter to compete in this market.

    Cons

    Need more office space but its just growing pains.

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

    Pros

    Good money, region ownership, you typically become the regional head but there aren’t many people under you. Slog and run on your own.

    Cons

    Limited resources to work with, everything is your responsibility- even customer success and project success. Limited investment in support functions.
