    I have been working at Hexagon Metrology full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great auto perks and benefits. Comes with paid meals and hotels/rental cars as well and a company credit card. A lot of long term employees which says a lot about the company.

    Cons

    The company has recently expanded from Europe resulting in a lot of travel time in and out of the United States which makes the occupation difficult for family men. (But you'll rack up 300,000 hotel points in a year easily)

    I have been working at Hexagon Metrology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    work form home, bonus system, while it lasts

    Cons

    Absolutely no room to grow. Pay scale is low they will tell you about the bonuses and how that makes up for the low scale. The bonuses are slowly being decreased and if you are at the top of there pay range. Your salary can be frozen.

    Advice to Management

    Time to do a real salary survey. Create levels to grow. An employee right out of college should not be the same level as someone with 10+ years of experience.


  3. "Exciting Technology - Poor Leadership"

    Pros

    Technology is exciting and the clients/customers are very interesting

    Cons

    The leadership is dominated by a handful of people and it's their way or the highway
    The corporate team is disorganized and unable to effectively communicate what they need, when they need it.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the team members who've been around the longest, they have a passion for the technology and work closely with the customers/clients, so they understand how to serve them.

    Pros

    I enjoy my job function, the accomplishments and challenges. I've been given the opportunity to learn many things.

    Cons

    I find there is a lot of gossip, griping and overall sense of childishness that gets in the way of the employees doing more and this company being GREAT!

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook talent, deal with the trouble makers and keep offering training and opportunities for growth for the people who really deserve it!

    I have been working at Hexagon Metrology full-time

    Pros

    Great opportunity! Started at a great pay and became permanent in a timely manner. Great people to work with, especially my manager.

    Cons

    No room for growth! Gossip can become an issue at times. Too many people watching your every move.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more room for growth, especially for people that have been there for a while. It's a steady position and that's good steady work.

    Pros

    This company has a lot of resources although they don't appreciate it.

    Cons

    This organization only recognizes those that are greedy and ambitious. It takes what it can from individuals, then finds a way to consider you a liability and release you. Only those that are careful to stay away from US corporate management are successful in keeping their employment. Trust me, those that think this place is wonderful, are just kept far enough from the reach of a worthless honorary doctoral degree.

    I have been working at Hexagon Metrology full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment where I get to work with a lot of different people in a lot of different capacities. The people at Hexagon are great and really make a difference. When I come to work each day I look forward to working side by side with the best in the industry. I have always felt taken care of by my manager, which goes a long way with me.

    Cons

    As with any large company or fast paced environment, there are things that we can improve on. Nothing major, though, as far as I am concerned.

    Advice to Management

    Like I mentioned before, I've always felt taken care of by Hexagon. That puts my mind at peace and lets me just do my job. I've also noticed that management doesn't turn a blind eye to issues that need to be resolved. So in short, keep it up.
