    Pros

    FARO is in a sweet spot for a growing public company. The barriers to entry in its industry are very high, the number of competitors is very low, and its products are among the best in class for what they do. Not surprisingly therefore, the company enjoys very high gross margins and uses those margins to drive more R&D activity and to fund a M&A pipeline that will likely bear some fruit in the coming years. FARO's benefits plan is fairly good, but compensation is about average.

    Cons

    Political strife in the leadership team runs rampant, and this stress creates a competitive environment that is unhealthy. FARO's CEO is a hands-off leader, whose greatest strength is public speaking, but who is not involved enough to address (or perhaps even see) the problems his relatively new leadership team has created. The America's managing director is a micro-manager that lacks sensitivity and compassion for her employees. I would rate attrition risk high right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO's direct reports are not getting along, and something needs change there. An effort needs to be made to reverse the tide of discontent that is seeping into FARO's bones. More events and programs designed to make employees feel appreciated and respected would also be a benefit.
