It's OK. A typical B2B firm.

ProsFor the most part, people at Colfax are decent hard working individuals who genuinely care about doing a good job.

ConsThere is a clash of cultures with the old guard and new guard coming in. The new guard believes that anyone who doesn't have a Danaher background or Northwestern MBA isn't worth anything. If you have those two things, you'll be welcomed otherwise you're on the outside.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe values posted are phony and I didn't see the follow through that you would expect from something described as 'so important'.
