    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Fluke Networks (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great tech support
    Cheap cafeteria
    Caring and kind manager

    Cons

    Little on-boarding or support
    Everyone guards own work with little desire for collaboration
    Seems like best way to keep job is to keep head down.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on on boarding process and building teams that are willing to listen and proactively move, instead of relying on status quo.

    I worked at Fluke Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At Fluke they had a very relaxed environment with a casual dress code and very flexible work hours. They worked with a wide variety of tech stacks all the way from bare metal to node and reddis.

    Cons

    Some of the current projects seem to lack proper direction and vision with open source alternatives providing most of functionality out of the box. The office I worked in its self was a little dated if you care about that sort of thing.

    Advice to Management

    Before a product launches ensure there is a clear vision for its use and another alternatives that may exist. Additionally hire architect consultants to get the initial framework setup, as the project i was working on could have been set up much easier and less convoluted.

    I worked at Fluke Networks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The influence that Danaher has is amazing, and the DBS way of life is something that will be valuable at any job moving forward. All orgs are focused on continued improvement.

    Cons

    At times can be reactionary, countermeasures for misses, painful process when the root cause was rushed planning up front. Cascading goals is challenging at times to get communicated throughout. There is a human element missing from culture - process improvement for sure, but not a human, personality, quality, trait. There also seems to be a ceiling that some individuals just can't get through, once you are flagged or challenge the wrong person, there are limitations.

    Pros

    Great place if you have an entrepreneurial spirit and want the freedom to make things happen. Management lets you explore ideas and determine what's best for customers. No micro-management and plenty of latitude given to try various approaches to solving problems and increasing business.

    Cons

    One issue, common to many organizations these days, is resources. There never seems to be enough people, time or dollars to execute plans properly or effectively. It is difficult to get the necessary investment in resources. The typical response is get the revenue and you will get the resources, but that does not usually happen as expected.

    Advice to Management

    It would really make a big difference to get buy-in to a strategy and have everyone on board to execute that strategy rather than having silo's of individuals trying to execute solo to the best of their ability.

    - Surrounded by really talented people who want to succeed and work as a team
    - The company treats associates well, is fair, and tries to do the right thing for people
    - Moderately-sized company, but also get the benefit of a larger organization in Danaher, which adds resources and career opportunities

    Cons

    - It can be complicated at first to understand the interactions of the different businesses, as well as how they all fit into the platform and Danaher

    Advice to Management

    Associates always appreciate being valued for our work and having new ways to grow and contribute - please continue to make this a priority at FNET!

    Advice to Management

    Explain processes and procedures to internal and external departments to better understand who the go-to people are for projects.

    Pros

    Smart people, out of the box thinking, nice work environment, treated people fairly and respectfully.

    Cons

    They moved to Georgia and I didn't want to relocate. I thought they were a bit too conservative in rolling out new technology and enhancements for the client I worked on.

    I worked at Fluke Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A solid core of engineers with high technical expertise, who guided me through my project. Pleasant work environment and plenty of opportunity to learn. After the internship finished, I had a conversation with my manager and was given specific and honest feedback, which pretty much matched my own assessment.
    Overall I very much enjoyed my experience at the company.

    Cons

    The company policy is that employees cannot provide professional references, so that was a bit of a let down. Otherwise, it was my first industry experience, so I don't have much to compare to.
