    I worked at Crossroads Systems full-time

    Pros

    I loved working with the people at Crossroads. A lot of great, smart, dedicated people came through the doors.

    Cons

    Crossroads sold the product business and is only focusing on patents. Development moved with the product business.

    Advice to Management

    Best of luck for you all.

    I worked at Crossroads Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hired experienced professionals that were great at their jobs, employees respected each other, and management was transparent, as possible, about what was going on.

    Cons

    Company was not profitable, so company direction was questioned on a regular basis. Minimum employee training and budget for improvement tools.

    Advice to Management

    Consider putting more work in forming a service business to help reach profitability. Work on growth through acquiring other businesses.

    I worked at Crossroads Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Folks I worked with let me know my work was valued. Customers actually used the products, and presented us with use cases we never considered.

    Cons

    Crossroads sold its product business. The buyer kept many of us, but the entire business strategy changed and left some of us under-utilized.

    I worked at Crossroads Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good People and good benefits. Challenging but fun.

    Cons

    Not much structure. There were trying to sell products while still working out the kinks and not fully aware of all the problems. Laid off a third of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Sell to Fujifilm or someone else before you're completely bankrupt and more employees are looking for other jobs.
