Opto-Mechanical Technician (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – 28 November 2017
3D laser manufacturing. Very easy work in a relaxed environment. loved the people I worked with and was extremely upset to leave. They hired me straight from college and I was able to gain valueable experience.
Large company focused on growing the company and improving their technologies.
Director of Operations (Former Employee) – Londonderry, NH – 30 May 2017
The company is constantly striving to enhance their product line and push the envelope on developing technologies. I found each day at work to be different and challenging. The management worked on improving the corporate culture as well as their methods, processes and communications. They were a professional and pleasant group of people to work with and team players.
Recruiting Coordinator/Internal Recruiter (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – 3 April 2017
This was a contract job so i cant give much on the company as true hard facts. I can say the people i worked with were very kind and nice, I learned a lot about everything Faro makes and dont have anything negative to say.
Buyer/Planner for all Electronics (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – 8 March 2017
Place purchase orders thru SAP or online, review shortage log, receiving issues, contact vendors with discrepancies, vendor problem reports, return material authorizations. Learned new processes going live with SAP in 2014. Management was OK. Work culture was great. It is a very friendly and warm. Employees take pride in their work. The hardest part of the job is when the company is launching a new product. The people are all so friendly and willing to help anyone.
Accountant (Current Employee) – Londonderry, NH – 24 February 2017
Communication with management is difficult. Management makes rash decisions. Benefits and wages are good. Company does not seem that they are very well organized and departments don't communicate with each other.
Our company was acquired by FARO Technologies and we were told that they intended to let the company continue to be a division of FARO and that there would not be any changes to our facility. Four months later they consolidated all operations to their other facilities in the US.
Management was not prepared for this take over and the transition has been poor.
Executive (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – 26 January 2017
FARO has great technology but has lost its competitive advantage from a lack of new products. Being publicly trader, this has put tremendous pressure on the company. They have recently gone through several layoffs of both top management and production people. So its no longer a stable work environment. Otherwise, friendly co-workers make it a nice workplace. Can still be a good place to start a career.
Friendly co-workers, good PTO, average benefits
Poor leadership, not enough new products cause layoffs
Total Quality Administrator (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – 9 January 2017
I loved working at FARO. The people are great. The products are great and innovative. I received great opportunities to move around in the company and learn and grow professionally. Had the economy not taken such a hit in 2008 and 2009, I believe I would still be there.
Inside Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Lake Mary, FL – 25 May 2016
I worked at FARO prior to the departure of the former CEO. The technology is impressive however the sales quotas and projections unrealistic. I was laid off after poor third quarter earnings along with many others. this company looks successful but is very top heavy. Employees gripe, all the time and there is not real job security. the building is beautiful but the equipment sold lags behind technology when compared to competitor products.
Sales Support Engineer (Current Employee) – Southern California – 15 March 2016
Being a sales support engineer for Faro has exposed me to a variety of engineering industries. I have learned a great deal about quality inspection and its roll in the manufacturing process. Anything that is manufactured has to inspected at some point.
