Pros- Great set of people
- Challenging problems
- People eager to help out others
- Flexible work conditions
- Good practices brought in b y Danaher

Cons- Innovation is somewhat stifled after the Danaher acquisition
- Lack of recognition for managers and above
- Seems to be all about turning the crank these days

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow innovation to run it's course, bring back some of the spirit of Tektronix. Recognize good people for the contributions they make. Create a less political environment.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
