Poor management/no regards for employees
Faro Employeee (Former Employee) –  Lake Mary, FL6 May 2019
This is a very competitive, stressful environment who no one has regards for no one. This is a very toxic environment and you will not be able to be in peace with yourself or your family unless you are a money hungry who does not care for no one else but yourself. If you are like that, this place and environment will fit right in.
Pros
Clean office, bathrooms, lunch area, surroundings
Cons
long hours, unprofessionalism, poor training, disconnected management

Not too much stress. Only in emergency to work more. Staff very cordial

Not any adverse things

Stressful Environment with Poor Leadership
Supply Planner (Current Employee) –  Exton, PA10 July 2018
Work environment and culture lacks teamwork and is very individualized. Stressful culture to hit unnecessary job demands. Business decisions are not always in the best interest of the company, which causes confusion by the workforce.

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 The technology is outdated.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

Lack of Management and Potential
Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TN28 February 2018
No upward mobility

Products are lacking innovation

Company has moved away from its roots as a small innovative company with a start up feel to a red tape lined business that trips over itself

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%
Pros
None
