    I worked at FARO Technologies full-time

    Pros

    This company has gone through significant changes and great improvements in last couple of years and it is positive changes. Executives and management have made tremendous strides along with employees as technology is getting much better.

    Cons

    Continue to focus on top talent and get rid of the people who has been there forever and flying under the radar. They are dragging everyone else down and the company to save their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    This company can be like Amazon, Google, Facebook but you have to get rid of the management that's holding this company back to save their jobs. You need talent that will bring new fresh ideas to the table not excuses.

    Pros

    Great products, smart people, and a culture that is mercurial, but invigorating. Change is the watchword, and if you want a "stable" work environment, this might not be for you. If you like to give input, and chart your own course, this is a fun and exciting place to be.

    Cons

    Some of the old-guard is cynical to change. Otherwise, not much to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going. Growth and globalization has point points, but continue to grow and improve. Love the energy from re-direction and fine-tuning.

    I worked at FARO Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    People from other departments were friendlier than those on my own team.

    Cons

    This place will literally wear you out until there is nothing left of you. The HR team is very dysfunctional. My manager did not care that I was being bullied and tormented by my own team. I took on multiple positions that hindered me from completing my original job. Other managers belittle employees and think it is ok to talk to them any kind of way. FARO has no concern for there employees and will quickly throw you to the wolves just so they can cover up their own butts.

    Employee turnover is also terrible. New hires some in for training and automatically see how unorganized the company is.

    Advice to Management

    All managers need to be evaluated. Every department, especially HR, needs a close eye on.
