    I worked at MorphoTrak full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Morphotrak was one of the best times in my professional career. The work we did was valuable to law enforcement from International, Federal and State/local departments. I was able to travel to quite a few places around the World and country. Training was great and often. I felt I had a real voice in the direction of technology on projects I was on. A few project and program managers who excel at leadership make working for them easy. The new CEO made some really good changes initially. Equal pay for women being a really great step in the right direction. The company is not innovating so nothing to sell.

    Cons

    Department and location infighting created unnecessary conflicts and prevents the company from progressing. Specifically the Anaheim office could be quite antagonistic internally to each other and to other regions around the country and globally. Ithink you see this with some other reviews from Federal Way Washington. Work-life balance doesn't exist. Projects run on crisis management and any attempt to manage projects are met with resistance. Some really good project/program leadership but this is not consistent across the company. Good leadership has been developed outside the company and not really recruited or developed inhouse. This company is no longer innovating. I do not see any long term growth here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove or isolate key antagonistic leadership in Anaheim that propagates company infighting. I think one of the problem people below listed them as the "great" leaders. If this goes on it creates a toxic environment for everyone including those under them. Build leaders on the business side (project and program) that focus on creating schedules and planning that takes work-life-balance into consideration. Focus on innovations. This company has a great customer base selling new products would be easy. License plate matching? Network security to law enforcement? New mobile devices for officers?

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at MorphoTrak in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview visit began with an application and technical exam, followed by panel interview in front of 2 managers and 1 peer. Panelists were all personable, courteous, polite, informative, and didn't ask any trick questions of me. Expectations were clearly stated, including the high demand for problem solving skills, the use of various technologies, and some travel. Environment seemed collaborative and team-oriented.

    Interview Questions
    • Given a Java array of integers, how would you find the LARGEST integer? Using a laptop that was hooked up to a projector, I had to code my answer on the spot while all 3 panelist interviewers watched.   Answer Question
