    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Horiba Instruments full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work at your own pace. As long as the work is done and done correctly no one really bothers you.

    Cons

    No real training. Poor management. Not enough employees to get work done when they want it done by. Pay is so low you can't really live off of it so people seek new employment

    Advice to Management

    If we made more money the turn over wouldn't be so frequent. It isn't a bad job. We just can't live off of what we make.

    "A company in transition"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Darien, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Darien, IL

    I worked at Horiba Instruments full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very stable company with a history of steady employment. Layoffs occur rarely and in small numbers. Current CEO of American operations more willing to back bigger (read: riskier) initiatives.

    Cons

    The company is highly diversified with few shared end users. While this allows the company to weather downturns across several markets, it often produced a split personality where a holding company tried to act like an enterprise.

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in new or upgraded tools. Encourage younger employees to become champions of these projects to provide both a path for them and cement their loyalty to bridge the generation gap looming as a real hazard 5-10 years in the future.
