Services Architect (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – April 6, 2018
Kronos was a fantastic environment to work in. However, I lacked resources to help me advance my skills and knowledge. The company seems to subsist on "tribal" knowledge supporting the software group I was in. Even the the simple questions I was unsure about I had to reach out to a co-worker or manager to get the answers.
Flexible Hours, Work From Home Options, Supportive HR
Great Culture. Your experience will depend on your department and team manager
Internal IT Co-Op (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – April 4, 2018
Management is not all trained equally. Some managers will be exceptionally good, while others will be exceptionally bad. No consistency. However, the culture is GREAT and the people you work with are amazing. All depends on what department and what team you join.
Job Culture, Your Co-Workers, Independent teams working toward same goal
Wide range of management types - poor/good. No consistency in management hiring/training
Technical Training Manager (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – April 2, 2018
Overall Kronos Management is not bad. But their are some managers that only manage on keeping the salary costs down. Kronos is a privately held company, wich at times leaves people on pins and needles if they are going to sell the company. So Management always is trying to keep costs down. I was laid off after over 20 years in the company, they laid off all the high salary employees in the department.
Team Lead (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – March 28, 2018
Upper management isn’t listening to the needs of support teams. You can’t expect a new hire to immediately close hundreds of cases a month when issues are complex, partners/development hold onto them for months, then support reps are held responsible for not closing cases timely. Clients aren’t properly trained to use Kronos products and neither are we
Unable to provide a realistic review of Kronos. It has been over 15 years since I worked at Kronos. I recall my time working for Kronos very fondly. The employees and the management teams were great to work with.
Application Consultant - Remote (Former Employee) – various – March 16, 2018
Very bottom-lined oriented company. Did not seem to want to hold on to long term experienced employees. Assigned to 5-15 projects at same time. Would not allow further training on aspects that the employee was interested, and only what manager thought necessary.
Application Consultant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 31, 2018
This is a great company leading the industry standard in Time and Attendance as well as Data keeping. I enjoyed working with all employees within the entire company. Communication was key to the success of Kronos and we all did a great job!
Front End Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – January 29, 2018
I worked for four and a half years at Kronos. I was fortunate to report to passionate managers and work with intelligent teammates during my time at Kronos. Employees are entitled to health insurance and unlimited time off.
Fast paced, challenging, and innovation place to work
Product Management Business Analyst II (Current Employee) – Lowell, MA – January 26, 2018
• Liaison between Development Engineering teams and Product Management • Product Owner in implementing new functionality in newly-released Cloud-based Timekeeping and Workforce Management software (Overtime Approvals, Schedule Corrections, Impairment Accessibility, etc.) • Leader of Grooming, Planning, and Demo sessions following Scrum/Agile project methodology • Author of Product Requirement Documents, User Stories, and Acceptance Criteria of new functionality • Mentored Junior Business Analysts and lead effort in creating BA process documentation for the Engineering department
SQA Team Lead (Former Employee) – Remote – January 17, 2018
I enjoyed my time at Kronos. The company is aggressively forward thinking. You get to use the latest development methodologies, industry standard tools, and latest technology.
Overall, Kronos treats it's employees well. Working at the corporate office in Massachusetts has a lot of perks. There is a gym, ping pong tables, gaming, etc. However, when working in a remote office, you don't get these perks.
I always felt like the company was moving in the right direction strategically and technically.
Employees are expected to work evenings and weekends when getting close to a milestone/release date.
Treats Employees well.
Long hours and weekend work when getting close to a release.
Good benefits, good HR program ... technology meh..
Senior QA Engineer (Former Employee) – Chelmsford, MA – January 16, 2018
Kronos has two divisions. One for the cloud offering and one for the enterprise product. Cloud SaaS group is cutting edge while enterprise group is still using a lot of old technology. If you get an opportunity to work for enterprise group, do your research before you accept.
Marketing (Former Employee) – Lowell, MA – January 6, 2018
Kronos continues to grow and succeed due to strong management and forward thinking. They provide a strong corporate culture and make it a fun place to work.
They recently switched to unlimited vacation, but it tends to be a double edged sword. People tent to take LESS time than before as there is no more counting vacation days and using them before you lose them.
Overall, I would strongly recommend Kronos as a good place to work.
Technology Consultant III (Former Employee) – Remote – December 31, 2017
Every year they re-evaluate positions and terminate based on the bottom line. At the end of FY2017 they laid off a bunch of great employees because the bottom line didn't jive. Great company to work for, but nerve-racking when you don't know if your job is secure every year.
