    I worked at FARO Technologies

    Pros

    *It is a modern environment

    *Interesting
    *Compensation and benefits are competitive
    *Global view

    Cons

    There is a need to provide better opportunities for employee development.
    There is a need to improve the quality of the product, quality comes before profit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the teams around you and make sure that those who are promoted are the ones pulling their weight. Some of them have great smiles but don’t work as hard as they pretend.

    I have been working at FARO Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great Technology and branding. Fun to sell. Good income on some years.

    Cons

    Cares more about shareholders than employees. Sales team comp plan is 100% commission based. Account Managers take all the financial risk. One bad year and they end up loosing a lot of talent thru layoffs or people leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think longer term and stop being obsessed with growth at all cost
