    I worked at Entrust (Dallas) (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company has solid technology that works around PKI and Multi-Factor authentication.

    Cons

    The company is moving at a dinosaur pace more than ever since it was acquired by a hardware company. The ability to innovate and execute is at a standstill. Competitors are beginning to eat their lunch and management seems to be in a fog about this. Ability to grow seems to be contingent on current customers. Operationally this company is weak as roadmap and vision is cloudy. Sales team is strength here and there has been and will continue to be turnover around key producers. There doesn't seem too much urgency in fixing the problems from executive management and morale is getting worse.

    Advice to Management

    Look at how startups are operating. Find the brilliant minds that can revamp the product and the messaging to the market.

    I worked at Entrust (Dallas) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Worked for Entrust pre and post IPO. Originally, culture was great. One of those places you want to work for. You wanted to go in every day. Money was good, work conditions were above average, management was easy going.

    Cons

    The direction of the company took some bizarre turns. With PKI never becoming more than a niche market, they suffered an identity crisis. As hard as they tried, marketing never managed to get the name out there in a proper way. Telling people you worked for Entrust often resulted in blank stares. Skills became stale with limited scope of work.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management at one point was great. Things change as they do in life. Lack direction and focus led to a serious morale drop. Unfortunate considering what it once was.
