I have been working at FARO Technologies

Pros

Small company feel. lots of areas for growth. better senior management could make it an outstanding company. company has become a known source of high quality products so industry acceptance is very good. very young staff is several areas.

Cons

company grew too fast. decisions are made without thought of the consequences, usually because it's what the competition is doing. Quality has gone downhill due to some very bad decisions involving "lowest cost" bidders on projects. employees are treated as a liability instead of an asset and most long tenured employees have left the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think before making kneejerk reactions. Don't copy the competitions mistakes. Go back to what we do best and stop experimenting.

    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
