    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I feel truly honored to have worked for a global market leader with such amazing, ambitious, and talented people. Leading pioneer for exciting multi-factor authentication technology. If you are loyal to the business and work hard, your co-workers and managers will be loyal to you and do everything possible to help you succeed. Excellent benefits, lots of perks, and fun office events. Newly modeled upgraded facility. Friendly staff. Flexibility and work-life balance. Highly recommended for a place to work!!

    Cons

    If you don't live near Palm Beach Gardens, it could be a busy commute. Other than that, can't really think of anything.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work with sales and inventory. Take time to invest in and utilize the potential of your employees to optimize your business.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay and people!! Family atmosphere!! Fun employee events. Glad to see that the company is becoming involved with big a big local charity.

    Cons

    Too many lay offs, SLT management changes The HR department needs to be more visible and act like they care!!! Improve the air quality in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Get the SLT team more visible to all of the employees especially the CEO!! He needs to get out of his office and walk around and introduce himself!! There are a lot of great employees he does not even know!! make money and you will be a great company!!

    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented teams of engineers and designers with family atmosphere and good work conditions. Local in Palm Beach County

    Cons

    Lot of change over in management. They seem to not to be able to expand the business to make it to the next level. They need to have a better understanding of the markets when designing new products.

    Advice to Management

    You got to find a way to break into new markets. You will not to be able to make it on hardware sales alone. Understanding your markets are key to building the right products and not wasting time and money on products that you can't sell.

    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good base of technology, well known in the industry, deployed around the world. Pay varies greatly, but can be good.

    Cons

    No consistency in HR practices, always looking at the short term rather than the long term, lack of stability in leadership, constant churn of employees (the biometrics industry is full of former Crossmatch folks), poor strategic decision-making.

    Advice to Management

    Settle in and take a long-term outlook.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Very laid back. The pay is mostly competitive.

    Cons

    Sketchy future and business strategies. The company still feels like a startup with very little direction. There is a lack of people who actually care due to the turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Try and stick around longer than a couple of years. If you actually pay attention you'll see that there is a lack of motivation and overall positive attitudes toward the company.

    I worked at Cross Match Technologies full-time (More than a 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 Management

    Still determining what I would want to share.

    Good professionalls, interesting projects, dynamic environment.

    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 Management

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