    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

    "A company in transition"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Darien, IL

    I worked at Horiba Instruments full-time for more than 8 years

    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.
