Pros

The company is very profitable. Colfax has great employees at all levels. Many of them have been in their jobs for a long time. The products are very good because operators take pride in what they are doing. Very safe work environment. Excellent Lean Manufacturing.

Cons

High stress jobs. Lots of pressure to exceed Wall Street expectations. Top management has high salaries, bonus and stock while the remaining employees get very little. Raises are very low, and benefits are marginal for such a profitable company. Promotions are not given. All opportunities are given to outsiders. You can not move up.

Advice to Management

The company lacks vision. You are focusing to short sighted. Look past the next quarter to long-term goals and objectives.

    Pros

    Following the successful strategy of Danaher leads to sustainable rising shares

    Cons

    No listening before judging, no humble inquiry what's going on, disrespectful behaviour to the empployees, no clue about the products, business system is becoming to be the purpose instead of the tool

    Advice to Management

    listen to your people, perception before judging, start asking 5 why's after grasping the situation, instead of guessing it's better to know what's going on, be on the shop floor, you can't change the system, you only can develop
