    I have been working at Hexagon Metrology

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits package, vacation time, the people are hard working and pull together as a team, professional growth potential, world-wide organization, flexible schedules in some positions, travel in some positions

    Cons

    Communications could be improved, some positions have excessive travel, forward thinking / planning could be improved, no relocation offered in most cases, Per Diem too low for current costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communications to relay direction of company and products, better planning of product releases, improve Per Diem / Expense policies to be in-line with current costs, more company functions and reward / recognition opportunities

    Pros

    The company has great people, excellent benefits and pay. There is a vast number of resources (people) that one can call on if needed. The work is challenging--to a degree. Enough can't be said about the support group though. Any problem you encounter, there is someone, only a phone call away, who has already encountered it.

    Cons

    As mentioned in the title, chaos. First of all, you will generally be working within a minimum of a 4 state region. Using the in house scheduling and service report too, you check your schedule to see where you will be working next and what kind of machine you will be working on. From there you book a hotel and head towards the customer.

    This information is put in the system by your manager. Unfortunately, communication with your manager, beyond this, is hit or miss. Often times you will arrive at a job only to find that the configuration is different from what was in your schedule, causing delays, since you might need another piece of hardware or tool to effectively work on the machine.

    The software used to perform your job is extremely buggy, depending on what machine you are interfacing with. Because of the large amount of legacy machines out there, this quickly becomes frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work instructions and documentation are a step in the right direction. More active communication would be an improvement. Not to the point of micro-management, but at least answer the phone and check voice mail.

    I worked at Hexagon Metrology full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits ok

    Cons

    Very corrupted work environment. Managers do as they please and treat employees like dirt. Hr is no support. Hr has the exact same attitude as management and will apparently sweep major issues under the rug...which will be at a great cost to the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get help. Get educated. Stop bullying and harassing. Look deep into yourselves and find the source of your turmoil that allows you to believe you have done the right thing by the people you treat like the stuff you scrap off the bottom of your shoe

    Pros

    none what so ever. The company is full of deadwood! Would never have company to work here, since they like screw their long time employees..

    Cons

    Management of nickel & dimers..departments point fingers at each other due to their own department's failure to step forward and fix problems. Senior Management is aloof and doesn't give a....to fix anything..other than perpetuate the already existing problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Easy.. fire all of them and hire new blood.

    Very friendly staff and work environment. Facilities are top notch. Many senior employees that can be used as a reliable resource. Many offices nationally with possibilities for re-location.

    Employee review and salary bumps promised but not followed through on. Lack of steady work which leads to down time.

    Better allocation of resources. Many employees seem very very busy while others seem under-utilized.
