    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to develop processes and tools that were institutionalized.

    Cons

    The programmatic (e.g., IDIQ) pipeline was weak for a biometric company to prime. The business model supports using the consultant approach at a lower pay scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Still determining what I would want to share.

    Look at the people who keep making it happen and promote them. Stop paying lots of money to people who only come in for a sort time, leave and make no improvement.

    Pros

    Good professionalls, interesting projects, dynamic environment.

    Cons

    "Club culture", the only way to be promoted is to belong to the club even if you are not educated enough. Frequent change of CEO's.

    Pros

    Dynamic, interesting work environment , latest technology.

    Cons

    Fear factory, multiple layoffs recently, people in "The Club" are untouchable and remain unscathed sitting in their cozy offices or cubes rubbing their toes together. If your reading this then you know who you are.

    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a very inovated company, New management team seems to be going in the right direction but still need to make staff changes.

    Cons

    there is no reward for good work, yet no reprimands for work slow downs. People want overtime even when there is little work. No concept of it hurts the bottom line. No negativity is allowed on the floor towards the employees so the dead beats who praise the supervisor get all the good jobs. I feel like good employees are being treated badly and made to feel intimidated by the favored. I quit on my own free will as I felt I would be let go to be replaced by a member of the Cuban click.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    screen your workers better, have a standardized test that includes English comprehension. Listen to the employees with eyes as well as ears. Investigate complaints while being impartial to either side. Discrimination is a serious issue. People are looking over their shoulders waiting to be the next one to be let go. It is very unstable environment with not know where or who you can confide in if you have problems.

    Pros

    Supportive Senior Staff that understands growth and has a solid five year strategy geared towards long term stability and customer orientation

    Cons

    Small in size which limits capital expendeture and does place addition responsibilities on the current staff. This basically is doing more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this stage

    Pros

    Once upon a time had a state of the art product with good people and a bright outlook.

    Cons

    I worked there before they were trying to go public and what a debacle that was. They had several offers to sell to large intergrators before 2007 stock option bid fell through and they have gone downhill every since then. Way to many suits who do nothing but point fingers and bring no other value to company whose good days are long gone!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the suits and hire worker bees!!!

    I have been working at Cross Match Technologies

    Pros

    Location is nice and convenient to I-95, lot's of parking. Fair life work balance but expect to work overtime around the holidays which is a company tradition. Salaries and benefits are okay for the area but you won't get much of a raise even after several years as said by others.

    Cons

    Much what others have said about this place is highly accurate; sad as it may sound there is not much in Pros that can be said about the company as it exists today. I been a long term associate company ; was indeed once a great place to work and the time has finally come where I have made the decision to get out of Dodge and will soon be exiting. Along with what the others said on here; the company is indeed behind the times on products. They are planning on farming out more work and going with contractors along with using other companies technology instead of inventing it internally. There is currently a mass state of confusion within the company and some departments have nothing to do since there is little to no direction.

    David Buckley is changing the direction of the company and brought in his cronies to manage for better or worse a lot of good people were fired in the process and some of the new hires are not very impressive; mainly the HR Manager and some other branded Directors many of which were old management that should have been cut. Communication is about as bad as it can get; these "town hall meetings" are rare and usually filled with boasting sales people and pie charts. Buckley's business model suits people in Sales mainly. Don't expect to come in here and be involved in innovation and the work is becoming less challenging.

    I will leave what others said below in "Cons" as my view as well; if you are thinking of taking a job with this place; be forewarned; the moral is extremely bad; there is a very dark cloud that lingers over this place that rains negativity as much as the Florida wet season. You will see people get hired in a poor market and work here for a couple of weeks or longer and quit; or long term good beneficial employees get let go for no logical reason. "The Club" as mentioned is a sad reality with this place; you may or may not be allowed in it. I am not a member of the club; reason why I'm on the way out. You will never ever receive praise at this place for your efforts and work if you are not in the club. CYA mentality amongst managers is rampant, only a few are really down to earth. Feels like a high school with all the brown nosing.

    This place is very unethical as mentioned by others it is no rumor that there is a major inequality in time off policies and attendance protocol being followed. I blame HR for this and department managers for not enforcing company policy. Only problem is HR is the biggest offender; rarely can you get an answer because they are never in the office. It is also no false statement that people with no experience are handed projects and positions they are not qualified to handle or manage. The Club promotes the wrong people and major favoritism exists within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best wishes; hope the company survives the next 2-4 years it might not be too late to turn the rudder if you can find it. You fired much of old management; but you left a few stragglers behind; time to trim the fat bring in some Vectronix people to these roles.
