    I have been working at Fluke Networks full-time

    Pros

    There are many hard-working associates at Fluke Networks that generally strive to do their job well. Depending on the manager, some associates have the flexibility to work from home occasionally.

    Cons

    The company is very short-sited, always looking to make monthly and quarterly numbers regardless of the compromises that are required.
    When you do something right, management will always take credit for it. When something goes wrong, expect to be thrown under the bus. It's a very demoralizing environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show genuine compassion for your employees. Stop living in denial about the poor company culture. Recognize that there are bad managers that have a negative effect on company morale and retention rates - and do something about this!

    Obsessive focus on financial results with predictable consequences

    I worked at Fluke Networks

    Pros

    Learning Danaher best practices
    Being part of a company with strong brand recognition
    Some very good mid-level talent
    Wasn't micro-managed

    Cons

    Fanatical focus on monthly/quarterly results leads management to make poor long term decisions
    Parent Danaher does a stellar job creating shareholder value (= buy the stock) but this is at the expense of the employee (=low raises, frequent layoffs, very high pressure to deliver)
    Compared to other companies I've worked for, not a fun place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Balance respect for employees against financial results
    Invest in innovation - in the long term playing it safe is the riskiest strategy

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO
