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

    Pros

    Great environment, welcoming and friendly coworkers, excellent benefits

    Cons

    There are no major issues; when employee concerns are brought up, management takes it upon themselves to actively attempt to resolve to the best of their abilities.

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

    Pros

    Great people, who left from the prev owner - Nuance

    Cons

    Management do not care about anything, but their bonuses. If they think that the bonuses would not be good enough this year - they just lay off 1/2 of the company. They can get more people in Vietnam, Russia or India. Keep you distance from US/Canada office if you can - these guys like only cheap labor and not ready to pay...

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

    Pros

    Job is relatively secure, they don't do many layoffs although very few low performers have been let go in the past 3 years, but that is purely at the discretion of the managers.

    Cons

    Not much room for personal development/growth. Developers with out-dated coding skills are common.
