    I worked at Daon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was able to travel to Ireland on business several times.

    Cons

    It was not a company that valued teamwork. It was kind of Everyman for himself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster teamwork and support all sales efforts.

    First few years were good, but the ship began to sink when they turned their eye towards poorly planned mobile products

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay, annual bonus, opportunities for travel, good people for the most part

    Cons

    Severe lack of work/projects, no stability (fear of layoffs is constant), Engine product which is their bread and butter really does not bring anything to the table, poor customer satisfaction/retention, mobile related software developed by shooting at the hip, US Engineering department very poorly led and products go through almost no design or quality cycle; positive products reviews in App Stores mostly left by company employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better with your staff; make the good and the bad clear; stop dumping money into products that the market is not asking for

    Cons

    Doesn't appreciates the hard work done for it i was layed off given no reason it was definitely discrimination and racism i know for sure. Managing Director is the most worst I am ever seen in a company. Tom Murphy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being Racist and stop Discrimination and make you own IT infrastructure for God Sake. Come out of the parent company IIU and become independent.

    I worked at Daon

    Pros

    Challenging industry with a crowded field, but you are the company that can glue these sensors together. Great brand. Allows for individual travel requirements.

    Cons

    Unclear how to show a customer what value Daon provides, since the glory is taken by the sensor or algorithm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Daon is a great place to be involved with sensor management and biometrics. Pre-sales is a great place for people who are dynamic and understand big picture security tasks.
