Business Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJune 21, 2018
Entrust Management was abruptly laid off in the acquisition by Datacard. The two businesses are so different although there is one CEO at the helm. Sales Management for Entrust is ineffective. Massive layoffs occur frequently. Sales culture has never taken off and many have left the company on there own.
Pros
Entrust is great for those in Information technology.
Cons
You dont want to establish a sales career at this company.

Good people and decent management, i have overall enjoyed my time at Datacard but there are not very many good opportunity to advance in the company. Raises and bonuses have not been great the last couple years.

Lead Senior Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Shakopee, MNApril 12, 2018
There is absolutely no room for advancement. You are simply a rat running around a maze. Management does not know the processes, nor do they care for their employees

I would absolutely not recommend working for this company.
Facilities (Former Employee) –  Shakopee, MNFebruary 24, 2018
The management for this company is so poor and unprofessional that you will find yourself in constant turmoil with management. The company is always short staffed and expects everyone to do extra tasks constantly. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this company.
Pros
health Insurance
Cons
Low pay and small yearly raises

Poor Managment
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Shakopee, MNFebruary 20, 2018
There was constant change and many time that change was never communicated company wide. They want to change but don't what change they want to make and it is hurting the leadership.

Not worth the trouble
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Englewood, COJanuary 25, 2018
The focus is not with the client's but with revenue. And I understand a business needs to be profitable; however, being profitable at the sake of treating your people terribly is bad business. Averaging 4.3 out of 5 on client survey's is considered subpar. You absorb all the blame for the team without having any of the control to manage the team. And you are provided, on average, 30 different client's to work with. It's extremely difficult to maintain high quality standards when you are forced to close as many projects as possible while constantly starting new projects.

Great Place To Work
Business Process Leader (Former Employee) –  Shakopee, MNDecember 29, 2017
I have nothing but positive things to say about EDC. The executive leadership team is top notch and while I was there didn't exhibit any of the dysfunctional tendencies that a lot of executive teams tend to fall into.

The work is interesting, but not unreasonable. I always enjoyed the work I was doing on an intrinsic level. For the most part it was fun, motivating, and provided a lot of opportunities to learn new skills and more about the business.

The employee base at all levels is well tenured and know how to handle obstacles and issues that arise from time to time. I really appreciated the work the employees at all levels did and the way they went about their work. It's not typical of most companies.
Pros
Great work-life balance, well tenured leadership and staff
Cons
Work is heavily dependent on engineers. This can limit your opportunities for career advancement.

Senior Systems Integrator (Former Employee) –  Shakopee, MNAugust 28, 2017
If you want to be surrounded by some of the most brilliant technological minds in the industry, this is the place to be. If you want to be surrounded by folks who are dedicated to their craft as much as they are dedicated to their clients, this is the place to be.

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

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

The hiring H.R manager is very bad for the company. Always short staffed and always overworked constantly. Just say no to this company!

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.
