    I have been working at FARO Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have a lot of autonomy.

    Cons

    Management is so concerned with quantity, that the quality of the hardware and the software is appalling. The product management is disastrous, and the lack of design, planning, quality assurance, and testing cost FARO millions in customer service, training, documentation, lost customers, and tarnished reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and use the software. Hire some project managers.

    I worked at FARO Technologies

    Pros

    Good pay and benefit structure but watch your back when times are slow

    Cons

    No matter how talented or successful you may be your time is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate and hang on to talented and successful individuals in good times and bad. Markets are cyclical when the down times are over your talent is gone.

    I worked at FARO Technologies

    Pros

    FARO used to be a very well run company. However they tried to move to quickly into a 1000+ employee company, and due to the economic downturn of 2008/2009 they got into trouble

    Cons

    The leadership of FARO is questionably capable at their job, yes in good times they can manage, however in bad times, clearly they can not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to retain talent during recessionary periods and don't resort to knee jerk reactions. The job security of your account managers is just as important as your bottom line.
