    Pros

    Knowledgeable service team great organization each member works in a group when starting out in this company you teach yourself one product from a group in a company the longer you are part of the company the more knowledge you will pick up and experience leading to salary increase and more opportunities there is growth in this position.

    Cons

    A lot self teaching and long days of work. Must have common sense otherwise this job is not for you. Technical skills are a must.

    "A company in transition"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    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.

    Pros

    employee first, loyal company to its employees. joy and fun philosophy is what the company believes in while working hard. great place to learn and work. a leader in the scientific area

    Cons

    the only thing which really stands out is the number of meetings. more should be completed by fewer instead of by committees.

    Advice to Management

    work towards delegation of responsibilities to individuals and hold them accountable. to many hide in groups or are not willing to take ownership of a project.

    Home office outside of US, sometimes US needs are not responded to quickly and completely. Need to seek out US market customer needs versus outside the US as US needs can be more demanding.
