    I have been working at Danaher full-time for more than a year


    Danaher pays well and seems to have a lot of upward opportunity for high performing employees.
    True company wide culture around DBS and really accepts and implements lean processes - there are a variety of training opportunities within the company and the corporate level employees are brilliant.


    Danaher is very demanding and can be a high stress environment. Sometimes the decisions that are made are more focused on the short term bottom line versus the long term success and sometimes at the expensive of the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in touch with your operating company level leadership and what they are doing. I think the corporate VPs should meet with middle managers at the operating company to get a better view of what is really going on and how customers are impacted.

    Learning and Development Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Danaher.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone screen. Weeks without hearing. Hiring manager contact with phone interview. Weeks passed then email asking if I was serious about the job. I answered. Relocation was an issue that was addressed. Then was passed to another hiring manager for a different job which I did not know existed. Interviewed with that individual. That individual indicated that I would be targeted for that job not the other job. Scheduled to meet for a face-to-face. That moved three times. Finally met and instead of five people met with the two hiring managers that I had interviewed with on the phone. The first hiring manager interviewed and began asking if I understood both jobs. Apparently the two had not discussed which role that I had come to discuss. The interview questions were about the job that I was no longer interested in or traveled to discuss. In addition they were questions that were discussed three months prior. He was rude and unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected...all of them since the role was not what I came to interview/discuss.   Answer Question
