    Great culture and colleagues. The Morpho team is great to work in. Very collaborative and professional. There is always tons of work, but luckily the work is interesting and challenging! The people are grade A professionals! I want to go to work tomorrow!

    Cons

    Some times I have a feeling that distribution of responsibilities are not even.

    I have been working at Morpho full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and lots of training that can be carried over to other careers. The customers love us and really appreciate our commitment to servicing their equipment. Most of the field service Staff is outstanding to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management has a Totalitarian,uncompromising, nepotistic management style and has put processes in place to pit techs against each other.

    A technician’s annual review is based on impartial information from data collection rather than reviewing and individual’s work ethics and customer interface practices.

    The communication between senior management and field staff is almost nonexistent. Any subordinates questions and concerns are quickly dismissed as disgruntled employees with bad attitudes.

    The whole field service department is understaffed which makes it very difficult to take vacation (annual use or loose PTO). Field services management doesn't value work/life balance and they expect technicians to move their schedules around day and night without any compensation. Technicians travel for service calls and work 16 to18 hours then are forced to take a day off in the middle of the week to avoid paying overtime.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees and work with them. Perhaps a 360 review of management.

    Everyone is passionate about their jobs. Managers are easy to talk to. Lots of work to go around, but not stressful

    Released items are a little disorganized and hard to find, PLM could use improvement. Otherwise there are no other cons

    Diversity of talent and background of the workforce.

    Listen to your employees and provide the proper training and support when required.

    Pros

    If you live in the East Bay, Morpho Detection in Newark may give you a better commute.
    The work is occasionally interesting, but you will get more opportunity to polish your corporate and political skills.

    Cons

    Product development seems to go on for years.
    The buyers for baggage scanners are governments (TSA), so the business is subject to FED budgets and govt "oversight". In some parts of the country "government" is pronounced "gummit".

    Advice to Management

    Are you ready to be owned by a British company in a post Brexit world?
    It's a little late to suggest being a tech company instead of a corporate outpost.

    I worked at Morpho (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, good salary, decent training

    Cons

    Working on CT scanners in the bowels of an airport with a variety of risk factors which include exposure to lead, radiation, extreme heat and noise. Carry heavy parts and tools accross conveyor belts and cat walks in an environment that was designed with little or no consideration for the FSE required to conduct his job there. Conduct repairs after the nights last flights into the wee hours of the morning. Rinse and repeat.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to all employees, not just your buddies. Consider the morale of your employees that result from your management execution. Favoritism should not be standard operating procedure.

    Pros

    Comfortable Work Environment, the benefits are great and they provide all the tools.

    Cons

    Poor training. Once hired you shadow a fellow technician for a few months then you're on your own. It's a sink or swim environment.

    Pros

    Don't have much to say about the positives, company is very cliquish and turnover is high. If you are not part of the core group form years back you have no chance to succeed in this company.

    Cons

    The management is incompetent and doesn't understand their own products. They hire new people to do the work and then blame them for the long term employee’s shortcomings and failures. They don't like the engineers who are high achievers and set them up to fail and leave the company. The politics and back stabbing is the way this company operates. Safran is working hard to sell Morpho Detection, the company announced that it is being sold last week 3/14/2016.

    Advice to Management

    Change of management is the best for this company.
