    I have been working at Fluke Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Cross training is available within the company, and there are some people, especially the shipping lead...she should be the supervisor.

    Cons

    It is hard to get hired at Fluke, if you are an African American.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees ideals and concerns, along try to honest, upfront, not to mention, respectful to all races.

    I have been working at Fluke Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazingly sweet people in the office. At least all the worker bees are. Great brand recognition. Customers love the products and the quality. Great to work for a company that customers love and rave about.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Unappreciative of employees' merits. Poor vision and management. They like to hire and promote idiots that look good on paper. Biggest gripe with this company is they're just greedy. They want more for less. Who has a value statement of "we work for our shareholders?"

    Advice to Management

    Your employees is what makes you successful. You wonder why you have only 2% retention rate? It's because you don't know how to appreciate your employees. Follow through with your lip service of wanting to keep more employees.

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

    Pros

    While not perfect (yet…), it is one of few places that takes self-improvement seriously and acts on employee feedback. Good opportunities to grow and make a difference in the market. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The company is taking some efforts to become more innovative (and I have confidence actions are taking place and we will eventually succeed), but it still hesitates to fully embrace higher risk initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the entire appraisal and merits system to reward innovation and risk-taking, this will prove more effective and quick in promoting innovation than any other action.

    Cons

    Great products from a great company. Factory/product management is awesome!

    Cons

    Sales direction is broken and very political. Inadequate first level management!

    Review your front line management team. There are some loose canons amongst your ranks.
