    Pros

    Good culture, a little burdened by Danaher (DBS) process, but overall very well run company

    Cons

    Too many acquisition and product lines with too many BU's. Needs to be put together and managed better from the top!

    Advice to Management

    Buck up and tell Danaher they are not built for the IT space. Wait, I guess someone did because Danaher just sold their Comms platform to NetScout:)

    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

    Good peers to work with. Company has money and resources to train employees

    Cons

    Mid Management is horrible. Company needs fresh bloody to bring in new ideas and ways to grow. The company hires employees and tells them what to do but does not all the employees to tell the company what to do. Company is not open to new ideas or taking risks. A lot of lies and conspiracy, little to no transparency. Nepotism over talent and the company culture is a marketing tool not actually practiced.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be re-schooled for integrity and transparency

    I have been working at Fluke Networks full-time

    Pros

    Feels like a small company with the benefits/pay of a large company. Feels like a big family at times.

    Cons

    A lot of negativity from employees can make work life sour.

    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.

    Pros

    Reminiscing about the good old days is the one and only Pro about Fluke Networks. That was years ago, before the long march to oblivion began.

    Cons

    A company reflects its leadership. Fluke Networks is no different. The president is a clueless, lifeless mass of befuddlement. Many employees wonder if he has a pulse. His supporting cast is no better and often worse because they compound their incompetence with politics.

    The company cellar-dwells in yesteryear’s business. Lack of investment kept them from recognizing opportunities, much less capitalizing on them. That damage is permanent.

    Absolutely zero job security. Layoffs are clockwork. With the asset sale and consolidation it will get worse.

    Advice to Management

    Stop encouraging employees to post “Great” reviews about the company. They get zero Helpful votes so they have no credibility. Kind of like you.
