I have been with Kenexa for 6 years and have worked remote for almost 4 years. Upper management is pulling everyone back into the office even if your direct manager and team still work more than 35 miles away.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – April 11, 2017
This company is owned by IBM now but during my tenure, it was run and operated by those in PA and had no concept of how to run RPO. No one was ever compensated fairly and there was never any room for advancement unless someone died or left.
Good work life balance low pay and almost no commissions/bonus
Senior Recruiter (Current Employee) – remote – January 18, 2017
Although the culture and work life balance is great, the pay is extremely low even for market value. Also, commissions/bonus are almost non existent and now with restructuring, it will be more difficult.
Good work life balance
Little room to grow, salary growth and commissions/bonus almost non-existent even for high preforming teams.
Overall, a very tough job - rehiring employees from Boeing. It was crazy busy, but they got the job done. I didn't have much time to get to know a lot of people, but helping employees transfer into the new Spirit company was fun.

Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – May 4, 2015
It was a fair place to work at. But the company was bought out by a large Software group. The raises came very few unless you were hired for a new position. The management ran the group as if we were grade school students.
To many childish rules, reminded me of grade school.
Sr. Implementation Consultant (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – March 5, 2015
Kenexa was a great place to work at as there was great team comradery. It was a great group of people and it was a fantastic collaborative environment. The hardest part was the commute. On some days it would take 1.5 hours one way.

Recruiter (Current Employee) – Frisco, Texas – January 15, 2015
There is work life balance in the remote positions. They do make sure teams are a good fit. Strong relationships built. In office politics can make advancement difficult if you are not in the click. Hard work, longevity, and dedication does not pay off financially and advancement for the whole is very difficult.
