    I worked at Hexagon Metrology full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Overall I really enjoyed my time at Hexagon, I had an excellent manager and my coworkers were great. Only met the CEO once or twice but he was friendly and nice enough when I did. Work /life balance is pretty good, I was asked to travel fairly often on weekends (I knew this about the job going into it) and was ALWAYS given compensation time (plus expenses) to make up for it.

    Cons

    Could've used more training, as I worked with a software that isn't as common as a lot of the software the company uses. I never felt like I received the proper training that I needed to be really effective at my job. Even towards the end of my time there I still felt behind in terms of my knowledge of what I needed to do my job well.

    Advice to Management

    Get your employees the training they need, and keep focusing on the work/life balance you've achieved so far.

    I worked at Hexagon Metrology full-time

    Pros

    free coffee, nice people, comfortable building, easy to commute to from 4 minutes away!

    Cons

    old boy network in all management; erratic growth policies, coddled "special" golden boys who produce little to no results but know how to golf and smooze; no business planning beyond a quarter at a time; live or die by the quarterly results; still working off machine designs that evolved 20 years ago - just keep regurgitating changes in appearances; the CEO couldn't tell you who worked for him think he's actually scared to come out to the floor to see his workers are and has a really big ego

    Advice to Management

    get new management, reward people who care

    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.

    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!

    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)

    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.
