    I worked at Molecular Devices (more than 10 years)


    Good place to learn Danaher business/company system (DBS). Salaries are midrange.


    Some DBS tools are outdated and not optimized for a technology company. Underwhelming compensation package. Physically separated segments of company make highly integrated product introductions slow and complex.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company management is adhering to the Danaher approach to all aspects of the business. It will be interesting to see if the Danaher skill sets can be leveraged in a technology driven industry such as that which Molecular Devices competes in.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Molecular Devices.

    Interview Details

    Typical, multilevel interview process, phone interview, in person local interview, in person headquarters interview, HR provides job offer & details then awaits your response. Managers were previously FSEs, interview with Engineering department was a nice surprise but that Engineer is no longer with the company. (Read the corporate reviews & see if you can figure out why he left). Corporate focus is on bottom line so be sure to play up the Dollars you can deliver over customers you can satisfy.
