Pros

Great heritage and still some good people.

Cons

Danaher management style has changed the corp. for the worse. Chaos and intimidation have replaced the pre-acquisition culture (which wasn't perfect, but was much more human). All corners seem to be pretty miserable places to work.

    I have been working at Beckman Coulter full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teams come together to get the job done.

    Cons

    Since being acquired by Danaher the morale at the site has decreased. People are leaving who have been with the company for years. Growth opportunities have decreased. Danaher executives running the company have not taken the time to understand the business and how it operates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of the Senior VP, which were with former Danaher companies should be replaced. Ruling by fear or degrading employees is unacceptable for those in top leadership roles.

    Pros

    There are very few. The check always cashes and there was plenty of work to do. .

    Cons

    If you have over 20 years start looking for a new job. Company is cost cutting and you are a cost.
    Lack of focus on the customer. They talk a big talk but if it costs it will not happen..
    There was a team fealing but not anymore. I had never been in such a bad position in my life without an end in sight. There seems to be a plan that is not even close to being shared with the customer or employees on the direction of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont tell the employees there overpaid. Start being more open with the cusomers.
