    Pros

    Location, large company = more opportunities

    Cons

    Backstabbing culture, lack of respect for employees regardless of the multitude of surveys, claims of "engagement" and seeing you as a person and not a number. Every year they have to justify every position and the ones they can't .. layoffs. The culture is "lean and mean" with emphasis on both. Not enough people to do the work so you work long hours and the pay is below industry standard. People try and make themselves look better by tearing down their co-workers to try and look good and survive the next round of layoffs. This is the Fluke/Danaher/Fortive culture. If you are a backstabbing ladder climber, you will do well - eventually. Note: I was not a layoff so this is not a grudge statement. Just a sad fact.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the old "Fluke" ways of caring about your PEOPLE from before Danaher came in and created this environment. The days are coming now that employment opportunities will become abundant with the baby boomers getting to the age of retirement. Good luck keeping good people with the culture that has been cultivated.Pay, backstabbing and fear for your job every year is not going to keep people for long. The leadership needs a complete overhaul - it all trickles downhill.

    Pros

    Company is an excellent resource for lean manufacturing and best practices. Education assistance and 401k are pretty good. Leadership is pretty solid and has good experience.

    Cons

    Low pay, big talk and no action, risk adverse. Lots of recent turnover, including management. Not many perks for a technology company and they don't do much to retain top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and be willing to innovate. Do more to retain top talent and walk the talk. If you say you value employees, show it. Do more to create a safe environment and have a little fun once in a while.

    Pros

    Danaher Business Systems teaches you how to measure everything possible and cut costs at every level within the organization. These actions result in delivering outstanding OP every quarter while bleeding acquired companies dry.

    Cons

    As a result, employees are sacrificial, innovation is dead. Employee engagement takes the form of cake and parties, not career advancement and empowerment. Power struggles between engineering and marketing leaders, has paralyzed the rank and file.

    Advice to Management

    Take the blinders off, replace senior management with leaders that focus on growing the business and employees.
