I have been working at Danaher

Pros

Danaher has about 45 divisions and is fairly well diversified. It's a fair company to work for. Very good benefits.

Cons

Danaher, it seems, has little use for associates over 50. They prefer younger associates in management positions.

    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.

    Pros

    Wall Street darling status good for management portfolios

    Cons

    Management only cares about fattening stock price so they can cash out ridiculous option grants - but will let employees go at any time to make numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are all multimillionaires yet you slash jobs every time you acquire a company, Send Larry in there and let him explain why he needs to get rich and fly around in a private jet while handing walking papers to each employee. Gutless management.
