Horrible management and hr doesn't care
Senior Marketing specialist (Former Employee) –  Shakopee, MNAugust 23, 2017
Management at the company has gotten much worse in the past year and even though over half the marketing team has left and complained to hr and leadership they continue to do nothing to keep their talent happy. Also the company didn't meet numbers this year, just had layoffs, plus didn't give out the 10 percent bonus. The building is nice and free gym, but that's about it.
Pros
Free gym and newer building
Cons
Management, advancement opportunities, politics, senior leadership

Principal Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Englewood, COAugust 23, 2017
Not sure what to say.
They laid me off after over 12 years of service.
They are the leader in card printing machines and instant issuance solutions.

Intensely political and distrustful environment
Business Development Project Management (Former Employee) –  Shakopee, MNAugust 14, 2017
A dysfunctional organization beneath the surface with a highly political environment. In some cases, goals are left undefined and then when not defined they easily end your role. Getting information to confirm outcome or output is difficult to get because the organization is privately held.

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Shakopee, MNJune 7, 2017
I would not recommend this company if you want to rise the corporate ladder because the company is not growing.

If you want a stable job, it is good though.

This company is in a downward spiral and doesn't seem to be getting better
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Shakopee, MNMay 4, 2017
Ever since this company made the transition from Minnetonka to Shakopee 2 and a half years ago the company has been slowly going downhill losing money firing a lot of their long term employees and the future doesn't look so bright. We used to get raises every June but that has been pushed out to October and our employee bonus has been getting smaller and smaller each year. This company does not care about their long term employees.
Pros
Good benefits

Company determined to destroy itself
Support Renewals Specialist (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXDecember 13, 2016
Enjoyed Entrust prior to being acquired by Datacard. After acquisition, it was about making sure Datacard personnel were taken care of over Entrust. Too many emails about nonsensical things, making daily work life difficult.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
management teams difficult to work with

Very good company to work for.
Customer Lead Engineer (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJanuary 23, 2016
As a Field Service Engineer the job is challenging and rewarding, always putting the customer needs first.
I was an on-site Lead Engineer providing on site service, support and preventative maintenance. Assisting customer with setups and data formatting.
I learned excellent customer skills in verbal, data collection, and generating reports with Microsoft products.
I lead a great team of people to provide service for multiple sites. I had a great management team that supported what I did to make my customers run smoothly and efficiently.
