  1. It's OK. A typical B2B firm.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 Management

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

  2. Making quarterly numbers is all that matters.

    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.
