Corporate Punishment
Just a number (Current Employee) –  Exton, PA1 March 2018
FARO is not so much a workplace as it is a labor camp. There are honestly no perks to working here. The technology is outdated. The culture is flat lined. The management is a clique of imcompetents who are all style and no substance. They make promises rhey never intend to keep. HR just wants to fire people. Seriously people, explore ALL other options before coming here.
Pros
Free water cooler
Cons
Everything

Terrible place to work
Optical-Mechanical Quality Technician (Current Employee) –  Exton, PA22 December 2017
Management has no proper training, upper management likes to pass blame down and take no responsibility for company’s failures, they cut employees bonuses instead and any other perks that used to be a plus to work here, do not work here, you’ll regret it, unless you like no chance for advancement, under appreciation, not being compensated for your hard work, and many other “faro norms”, do not, I repeat, do not come here to work, turn over rate is over 80%

Large company focused on growing the company and improving their technologies.
Director of Operations (Former Employee) –  Londonderry, NH30 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.

Great company to work for.
Buyer/Planner for all Electronics (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FL8 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.

Very poor management
Accounting Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Londonderry, NH17 February 2017
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.

Small company under pressure from the market
Executive (Former Employee) –  Exton, PA26 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.
Pros
Friendly co-workers, good PTO, average benefits
Cons
Poor leadership, not enough new products cause layoffs

i miss working here
Total Quality Administrator (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FL9 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.

Work is great, company overall good. Management is bad
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FL18 December 2016
Typical day- Day of work on line dirty, boring, difficult at times

What I've learned_ Section assembly, disk centering, cartridge assembler, final assembly, Comp/Cal, acc.assembly.

Management- Management has changed they are unkind, talk down to you, never takes ideas as good.

Co-works- Co-works must work as a team it makes the job run smoothly, some make the job harder trying to work alone, they don't follow PLC and do the job the right way.

Hardest part of job. Part shortages, people being out sick being short when working the line.

Enjoyable part of job. Working as a team, working with friends, doing something you love.
Pros
quaterly bonuses
Cons
not enough hourly rate
