    I have been working at Fortive full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This place tries to improve and keep employees in general. It provides a lot of potential to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Always last minute fire drill. The management cannot make a decision and hold employees to work extra hours for it. Poor communication resulted in a lot of surprises to people's expectation. No process at all.

    Advice to Management

    Deadline should be deadline. The management does not meet the deadline they set up and ask people to accommodate for their indecisive result.

    Pros

    Great if you're Danaher or Fortive MBA.

    Cons

    Culture of blame Constant reductions in staff, but no reduction in work Mediocre people rise to the top because the talented people get fed up and leave All operating companies run by Fortive are just a line item on a spreadsheet One choice of insurance carriers - UHC - the worst Very few women in leadership positions. Mostly older white men. Random promotions Very strange culture bound by a lot of rules and analysis...

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people based on their MBA degree or time in service. This leads to unqualified people in critical positions. Stop focusing so much time on past metrics (Kaizens and PSRs), and focus on the future.
