    Pros

    Great BtoG/B industries to work in because of their potential and scope. Danaher could be an amazing company to work for, but will need change of culture.
    For very young people great way to learn basic processees and get tech know how.

    Cons

    Culture is a based on fear, mindless processees and hyrarchical thinking and very elitist.
    It is an investment fund disguised as a operational company run by investment bankers & politicians with a very US centric and mormon mind set..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be leaders and stop behaving like greedy politicians. Activate your teams, think global and built a culture based on people as an asset.

    Pros

    This is the most extreme management culture you are likely to encounter. Learn fast, take the money while it lasts and get out.

    Cons

    Upper management are selected as ' insecure over achievers, moved away from their families and pitched against employees. Don't believe you are dealing with balanced people, they have no interest in/respect for employees and are tied to Danaher via massive stock options.
    If you reject the culture imposed on you, you will be paid to leave ie. you boss will sacrifice you - there is a separate corporate budget for redundancies that doesn't effect your companies bottom line!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope it is worth all the misery that is caused, or is it just that if you didn't do it, someone else would.
