Tektronix is a great place to work
Process Engineer (Current Employee) –  Beaverton, OR4 September 2017
Tektronix is a great place to work. Opportunities to advance and move to other jobs abound, and there is a lot of extremely interesting projects and technical challenges to work on. Most of all, the people at Tektronix are great to work with.

learned new technology and was a competitive environment
SENIOR SOFTWARE ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TX24 June 2017
Work environment was centered around team work. It was process oriented. We had informal dressing, flexible work hours, and good Work-Life balance. We were given expectations and responsibility and were expected to deliver without being micromanaged. We would get recognition for any good work. Top management had open door policy and we could skip a level and talk to the higher management if needed.

Improve Worker Treatment
Lab Support & Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Redmond, WA18 June 2017
I worked as contract on-site engineer for Tektronix (now Netscout), for more than two years. During this time, it was very difficult to escape from the conclusion that contract on-site workers are not treated the same way as other workers.

A leader in the test & measurement market
Strategic Business Development Executive (Former Employee) –  Beaverton, OR14 June 2017
Danaher owns Tektronix (as well as Fluke, Hach, etc.) and thus the Danaher Business System (DBS - i.e. LEAN) is deployed across the enterprise. As such, Danaher manages all of their companies to financial performance - which may drive short term executive behavior. Overall a good company to work for.
Pros
Salary & Benefits
Cons
Executive leadership (high turnover rate)

Fantastic innovation and engineering, with less solid marketing

Constant technical challenges, which made for very interesting work.

The engineers were a good and understanding group.

Engineering was undercut by weaker upper management and marketing.
Pros
Shopping the old equipment at fire sale prices
Cons
10 minute response time for on-call work could be problematic when driving.

Engineer (Current Employee) –  Beaverton, OR24 May 2017
Its difficult to explain the cultural norm, as managers have been been at the company less than the minions who do the work. They continue to hire from outside the company, trying to poatch the competition, which usually is less than ideal. Then GMs and VPs are in and out before you know whats going on. In my current roll I've had 7 managers in the last 4 years.
Pros
Summer hours (half day Friday's), free gym, great people to work with
Cons
management mucking in the processes, campus is falling apart

Big company doing it's best
Manager (Current Employee) –  Beaverton, OR5 May 2017
This is a decent company doing it's best to pivot from an aging/retiring work force into a lean and fun/vibrant workplace. Still struggling to keep talent as budget constraints and less with more mindset still plague the management.
