    Pros

    Looks good on your resume to work for the largest CNC provider in the world. Free lunches and great co-workers.

    Management says very insulting things that they shouldn't. There's no need for it and it didn't help me to be more productive.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid lawsuits by using more creative speech.

    I have been working at Haas Automation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Exciting work. New every day. Get to work with great people and machines, tools. Free lunch once a month. Get to really use your head. If you can look past politics, and layoffs of others, can be great job. New equipment added monthly. People come and go but I just do my job, and enjoy it. No problems.

    Cons

    Another review said Haas was a Toxic Workplace. I looked it up on Wikipedia. I wasn’t sure I knew what that was. The definition online described Haas, like they’d worked here too.

    “Over time, positively motivated employees drift away from the workplace and only employees comfortable in the negatively charged atmosphere remain on staff”

    Layoffs every few months. Demotions. Early retirements. Now people finding new jobs voluntarily. Going away handshakes, emails or lunches are happening every week. People finding they are worth more once they scared enough by layoff to send resumes out.

    Those that left have to work without supervision now. More with less.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t let managers badmouth groups you’ve let go or demoted. This is routinely done, by managers who didn’t even know the people. Not everyone was an idiot. Those that are left don’t like it. Stop replacing good managers and supervisors with yes men who don’t even know those departments.

    Pros

    Decent benefits and work conditions.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on cutting cost, to the detriment of the products and the company. Low employee morale, due to layoffs and cost cutting. No one feels safe.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, they are your most valuable asset. Build a quality product, rather than a cheap product. Customers will pay for quality.
