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

    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.

    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.

    Great work environment, customers, and products.

    Communication post merger was slow, new leadership struggling to understand what they purchased.

    Pros

    Great people. Everyone helps each other out - awesome teamwork and great talented engineers. The team here is among the top I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Part of company will go to NetScout and part will remain with Fluke. Depending on the part you are on, you likely have different things in store for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication high to keep the great talented engineers engaged. You don't want to lose them to chaos and major disruptions while you figure out your new strategies.

    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.

    I have been working at Fluke Networks full-time

    Pros

    Fluke Networks has a lot of processes and rigorous reporting metrics for marketing, which might be a turn off to most people, but it helps to evaluate what is working and what is not. This is a pro for myself, but other creative marketing people might find this difficult. The teams move quickly, and very independently.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is a culture here, and not always by your management team, but others on different teams can micromanage you, even if you don't report to them in any way. Seniority here is everything.
