    Pros

    Great place to work loads of OT.

    Cons

    Management can be a challenge to deal with. Heard that a lot of good people no longer work there and they are struggling.

    Advice to Management

    HQ needs to wake up and analyze the situation before Board members act!

    Former Employee - Senior Software Developer in Lake Mary, FL

    I worked at FARO Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was completely engineering-oriented job requiring deep knowledge of math, computational geometry, optimization algorithms and point cloud. Very neat environment, good compensation.

    Cons

    For whatever reason they decided to move all SW development to the Portugal team, so there is no more software-related positions in Florida

    Pros

    Good people to work with, great benefits, open door policy with management

    Cons

    Doesn't seem to be a whole lot of strategic direction, there was not a lot of opportunity for professional growth, and for a metrics driven company, there are a lot of people there who get by on doing the bare minimum amount of work
