    I worked at Colfax full-time

    Pros

    Colfax provides a great opportunity for everyone to become involved in continual improvement efforts. Six Sigma concepts are used with great regularity. The skills become second nature, imbedded in how work is approached.

    Cons

    It's a large corporation, which brings many perks, but it can also displace and absorb smaller business at great cost to the individuals and the cultures these individuals create to attract the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Consider the sustainability of business you are purchasing, not only within your corporate structure, but also within the community you affect by your purchase. Your corporate responsibility must be extended to these stakeholders.
