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 Management

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

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

    Pros

    - Very Structured, at least on paper
    - Senior Management are very personable and down to earth, particularly Gene
    - Enforced 8 hours work day due to labor lawsuit
    - still the largest CNC machine manufacturer in North America
    - Great Service department

    Cons

    - Most employees are being treated like zombies and humanoids, only managers are allowed to think.
    - Senior Management surrounded themselves with too many BS artists unfit as middle and low level supervisors work.
    - Too much effort at middle and lower level with emphasis on looking good, sweeping dirt under the rug, but not doing any real good work.
    - Too much effort at middle and lower management level to do songs and dances at the high level meetings, but mostly are just hypes, smokescreens, or useless demos.
    - completely antiquated technology, but no manager knows how to move forward except BS'ing the top.
    - Many are being mistreated by the supervisors, pitted one against another like in the gladiatorial sports.
    - Too many old-timers only cared about status quo, hiding behind what they know and throwing mud at what they don't know.
    - Lots of preaching on team work and efficiency, but most mid/low level management made sure that anyone who follows the preaching would be placed first by the exit door sign.
    - Used to have great bonus (2011), but now it is just a sham.
    - Company sales grow too fast for its infra-structure to keep pace.
    - while some are satisfied with their jobs and where they are, there are just too many unhappy campers and too much frictions at work.

    Advice to Management

    - Watch out for the half truth your mid and low level supervisors are telling you
    - What we ought to do, everyone knows, what is gonna happen ? nobody knows.

    Competent, qualified staff, great corporate structure, awesome benefits package, just an all around good place to work. Employees all get along, its like working with one big family. Everyone has a job to do, and the tools to do it.

    Cons

    Long long hours, but its worth it. You know you are a valued employee at Haas Automation Inc. Traveling long distances.
