Relaxed work environment that promoted learning and growth
Recruiter (Current Employee), Sugarland – January 11, 2013
Cons: it is a contract position. i am looking for a position with more stability
This was my introduction to the field of recruiting. I was able to see what it was like to sit on the other side and be knowledgeable of what it takes to find the right candidate for the job. It has been a great learning environment.
Kenexa does not practive what they preach. They get rid of people as quickly as they hire them. internal clients ie employees are not appreciated.. Glad to see IBM take over.
The Lincoln office is poorly ran..
Job Work/Life Balance
Project Coordinator (Current Employee), Wayne, PA – September 12, 2012
The company has great ideas and core values as a whole. However, if you don't work at the corporate site, you will not see much of the environment described on the corporate website. I would recommend Kenexa as a company to work at, but not my individual team. This position did not offer challenges or growth opportunities.
Sr. Talent Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee), Buenos Aires, Argentina – June 24, 2012
Pros: work from 11 - 7
Identify, phone screen and present candidates to client for hiring needs. • Network and research on job boards to generate candidates and increase interest in position. • Answer questions and communicate with candidates through email and over the phone. • Manage applicant tracking system and provide results in reportable format.
Survey Manager (Former Employee), Lincoln, NE – June 19, 2012
Pros: reimbursement of company travel expenses. opportunities to travel and live & work abroad.
Cons: cons are listed below.
INTENSE! Not always enough hours in the day to get things done even if you manage your time properly = having to put in extra hours at night and on the weekend, often on a weekly basis. You have to work super fast and for long hours to try and stay on top of everything which leads to burn out very quickly.
Everyone is required to commit to quarterly – more... personal goals to benefit the company every single quarter and NOBODY has the TIME to work on them!!!
Bonuses and raises are usually based on your progress in achieving goals each quarter.
Management is not afraid to throw employees under a truck for the slightest of reasons.
Managers who are unhappily married at home eventually proposition other employees. Some people have received promotions after a one night stand.
Expect a 100 emails a day to sort through. Fun! :-(
Sr. Staffing Consultant (Current Employee), San Diego, CA – May 8, 2012
Pros: busy, fast-paced environment
Cons: not enough hours in the day to do it all
No two days are the same in this busy environment that tends to be more fulfulling than frustrating. I've learned to manage multiple priorities that compete for attention, and how to keep communication open and transparent while building trust with all levels of the organization I support.
Kenexa has wonderful job opportunities and a great culture.
Recruiting Operations Lead (Current Employee), Frisco – February 29, 2012
Pros: fun environment - you can actually hear laughter
Cons: low salaries, lack of employee retention loyalty
The education and opportunity I have been given has provided me the necessary skills and knowledge to advance my career. I personally like their 10exa’s like: Laugh your way through a problem, opportunity exists here, find it, If it doesn’t sell, don’t do it. The culture is fun and exciting but the career growth potential eventually caps out. I am looking – more... to further my career, knowledge base and salary. – less
Project Coordinator (Former Employee), Decatur, Alabama – February 23, 2012
Pros: competitive benefits package
Cons: no tuition assistance
I LOVED working for this company. It was simply unfortunate that I was in the position of "last in, first out" when it came to layoffs. I especially liked Kenexa's approach to family values, community involvement and to the environment.
