Account Manager

Account Manager (Former Employee)

ProsFARO 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

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementLearn 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.
