    I worked at Danaher full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Lot of autonomy, good salaries and bonuses

    Cons

    Lack of management, no communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't penalize someone for being out sick. I missed two days in six months and was told that nobody ever misses work there. In fact, there are people who have been there for years who have never missed a single day of work. I was not hired permanently because of this, but they would not tell me that. They just kept overlooking me for open positions that I was well-qualified for.

    I worked at Danaher full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary is fairly decent buts thats about it.

    Cons

    Work / Life Balance is horrible they expect you to work whenever they say but you unable to carry any time off over to the next year. Did i mention you only get 10 days per year. Danaher considers there employees as a statistics you are just another number on a sheet to them. Once your project ends be prepared to look for another opportunity because they already forecasted the end of your job. There is ZERO culture at Danaher you feel like a drone working here & you can be easily replaced. I believe the average lifespan of an employees is 1-3 years if your not senior management expect to get canned within that timeframe. I would avoid working for them or any of there subsidiaries at all cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees welfare then just what they can do for you. Provide opportunities for growth not just for senior management but for all the other associates.
