    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.

    Pros

    The diverse equipment exposure will sharpen your skills.

    Holidays off in the field are nearly impossible. Compensation is low for the workload and expectations. Management is clueless. Terrible parts availability. They treat their contract employees terribly.

    Pros

    There are some really amazing and brilliant people at Morpho. They tend to promote from within, so there is room for personal growth.

    Cons

    Constant organizational changes that make it hard to know who to go to for anything; also affects perception of stability for employees. Benefits get worse and more expensive seemingly every year. Salaries aren't up to industry standards for many positions.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be less scattered. Some positions that are allowed to work remotely really should not be. It makes it hard to get answers/guidance/action when needed.

    Pros

    Good people looking for good leadership. This is a great place to be an engineer, real design challenges, combines large equipment with high technology.

    Cons

    scientists instead of engineers designing product, our biggest customers are governments around the world which makes for all sorts of crazy rules.

    Advice to Management

    get help by bringing in new blood, really examine way we prioritize work, do a reality check on who is providing value

    Pros

    Diversity of talent and background of the workforce.

    Cons

    Positions are not filled when people leave the company, others are expected to take on the extra work with little or no training and no support.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    I worked at Morpho (More than a year)

    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.
