Pros

-Self satisfaction that customers appreciate what we are doing for them. -Great position if you love troubleshooting mechanical devices; challenging and satisfying. -This position pays well, but more would be nice :)

Cons

-Micro-mangement style. -Freedoms and benefits are the thing of the past. -The doom and gloom of layoffs hang over everyones head. -Great and consistent performance is not appreciated. -No one to voice your opinions to (HR, management) without backlash whether or not "it's strictly confidential". I guess I should stop now.

Advice to Management

Manage people please. We are not numbers or robots. Think before you set policies in place. We, in the field, know the right things to do. If someone is taking advantage of the system, please burn them at the stake, not the entire field.

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
