Pros

Tektronix has an amazing amount of engineering depth. There are people who are world renowned experts in their area sitting in the cube down the hall. My coworkers are friendly, supportive and encouraging.

Cons

Danaher and senior Tektronix management doesn't seem to understand that Tektronix designs & builds technology for technologists. Danaher is all about creating efficiency, not about creating technology. Vision about technology is sorely lacking in senior management. Tek needs a technologist with vision to lead the company. Sadly the right people for the job have either left on their own or have been let go because they don’t easily fit into the Danaher mold. That doesn’t bode well for Tektronix maintaining market leadership.

    Pros

    - Great set of people
    - Challenging problems
    - People eager to help out others

    - Good practices brought in b y Danaher

    Cons

    - Innovation is somewhat stifled after the Danaher acquisition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow 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.
