    Seems like the cons run that place.

    Advice to Management

    Create your own culture, don't try to import one from a different company.

    I have been working at Colfax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, decent benefits, opportunity for overtime.

    Cons

    Management is a collection of cronies from Danaher and Rexnord. They came in and fired all the people with valuable experience and technical knowledge in order to create vacancies for more of their "club". They have a "let them eat cake" mentality. No respect or trust for highly skilled employees. Micromanagement X 10. NO opportunity for internal advancement. They all come from outside and from high volume production environments which have NOTHING in common with out business.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to cram a square peg into a round hole. We were just sold to Circor, so hopefully this place will soon get a management enema.
