    I have been working at Haas Automation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, never bored, and interesting

    Cons

    The Engineering department is a disaster, stay away. There are few good people in there. The rest (and most of management) is filled with childish politics.

    I worked at Haas Automation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits package, Good pay, Good compensation, Bonuses, Plenty of work, Challenging assignments, High company standards.

    Cons

    Tends to over-schedule production numbers to where parts required are not always available hence reflecting adversely on employees. Hours required to meet production schedules regularly negate any chance of a work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to employee dedication, extra workloads and duties assumed, innovations shared, assistance to fellow employees, volunteering to 'go the extra mile' on a regular basis, superior work quality for advancement to supervisor/management positions.

    I worked at Haas Automation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In all fairness, the CEO is generous enough with his money. But the Pro's end there.

    Cons

    People come in as fast as they go out. The promise of compensation, bonuses etc. is convincing enough. It won't take long to realize this place isn't what they made it out to be. Company culture lacks integrity and management is extremely unprofessional. The problem of throwing money at problems with disregard for the employees health and work/life is too great to ignore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The problem exists at the top and the behavior goes through the chain of command. I have no advice to management, this company is beyond repair.

    I have been working at Haas Automation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay. The owner is generous in giving, especially when we pull through and work hard.

    Cons

    Lack of structure, direction, or organization. What they want, and how they want it, may be imperative for the day and insignificant the next. Or constantly receiving two contradictory orders from superiors is tantalizing and regressive. And the attitudes and belittlement. Don't speak condescendingly, or swear; its lacks integrity, intelligence, and moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know what you want, and stick with it. And if you change your mind, or someone above you changes it for you, remember how we busted our butt for such a big project to be complete in a small time, before you just push it aside.

    I worked at Haas Automation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The only pro is they give you fee lunch.

    Cons

    This is a very Toxic company.
     I was once told by a manager that they call it Haas-tile (Hostile). =(
     The owner who was recently in prison sets the undesirable work environment.
    My advice to you is find another place of employment. I only lasted 3 months couldn't take it any longer. There front door is a revolving door, folks come out as fast as they go in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get anger management training.
    HR understand your function to be there for the workers.
    Treat people with kindness and respect.

    Pros

    Monthly bonuses are nice but not always distributed because of the quality numbers.

    Plenty of work to do, little down time and things are always evolving.

    Cons

    Management is heavily involved and doesn't give engineering employees much autonomy.

    Expect to be low balled on your hourly wage. The recruiter hyped up what I would be brining home after bonuses and overtime.

    I have been working at Haas Automation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hourly (not salary) for most non management positions, monthly performance bonuses. Exposure to projects and technology not seen anywhere else. Culture of hard work and good pay.

    Cons

    Overtime is common if not expected in most departments when the company is busy (could be a pro and con for some people). Reactive to most problems instead of proactive solutions which is slowly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication top down suffers in almost every department. Not sure why other than having tight production schedules.
