    Cool technology but lacking maturity

    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Top contractors and innovators are amongst the talented alumni who built their flagship products. Great opportunity to learn software development from the existing code base and also gain valuable skills in areas including: hardware, installation, product management, testing and business analysis.

    Cons

    The top contractors and innovators turn over quickly. No process quickly turns into frustration for larger teams and mature product lines. Sometimes it is what you say and not what you do that matters. Management is aware of the problems but apparently not able to make change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The ingredients are there for a great company, just need to add a little process and maturity to the equation.

    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.

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't bother printing business cards, the ink on mine wasn't even dry yet!

    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

    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!!!

    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
