    I have been working at FARO Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    co-workers and benefits make it passably worthwhile

    Cons

    Out of touch CEO, wage cuts, unattainable metrics, lack of upward mobility. This was a great place to work under the old CEO. Family atmosphere and feeling that employees were valued. New CEO has completely turned that around and it has affected morale which is pretty much non-existent. It's become a bad, fear based, environment. Unfortunately the sales numbers are good so the Board of Directors will never replace Raab. Employees were told three years ago he was at most a 12 month step-in. There has not been an active replacement search for over 30 months.

    Pros

    Great People to work with. Great collaborating and supportive environment.

    Cons

    They are not settled in their reorganization yet. I was hired and told senior management was 100% this newly created decision. 2 months later I was laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Before you go through the motions of hiring people make sure you are settled in from a high-level perspective. I may have been just a number and cut to make numbers but there are people attached to that number who have lives and obligations. It was a very bad decision to move forward with creating a role knowing you were not completely settled from a higher level.
