    Pros

    Early years before 1980 were very productive as the company was science based and science driven. Then the MBA and accountant mentality took over with cost reduction, labor time studies and six sigma approaches.

    Cons

    Individual contributors are no longer valued. Group think, or more properly group grope, are very much in vogue. Management tries to schedule breakthroughs.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.

    Pros

    Collaborative culture, friendly employees, progressive pockets

    Cons

    Since acquistion by Danaher companies a dark cloud has hung over this once vibrant, albeit imperfect work place. Some real advances from the 'danaher business system' are offset by the continual quest to bleed the site out of every possible dollar. This and the steady trickle of staffing reductions has taken a big toll on morale.

    Advice to Management

    Admit you're still trying to shower off from the duplicitous 'DBS friendship tour' immediately following acquistion. The truth will set you free.
