I worked at Danaher

Pros

The benefits were good, but could NEVER out way the stress level. Fellow employees are good, made some great lasting friendship.

Cons

The company does not respect employees who have spent their life building the company up to where it was. Hard work, dedication and experience is not rewarded. Chances for advancement are very slim without a masters degree. Very stagnant to improve oneself. With the economy the way it is today and jobs hard to come by employees are stuck and will have to take the unfairness until the economy changes. Then they will lose the employees that are working there for a paycheck and not because of loyalty to company. They seem to by interested in hiring temps to fill al the full-time positins they have let go. Guess it saves them money and they don't have to pay benifits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn out to treat others the way you would like to be treated. Start listening to employees concerns with out retaliations and hiding behind your New York attorney.

    Pros

    Decreased management to leaner levels. Pay and benefits remained the same for the first 6 months.

    Cons

    Upon taking over a very large multinational medical instrument company cut out all travel for some departments and attendance to national meetings. Removed copiers, stopped replacing ceiling lights. Forbid upgrading computers, took back cell phones and other communication devices. increased costs to field support persons for car, cell phones. Over worked field support. Many resignations. Senior persons taking jobs with competitors or taking lay off package.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up or abandon ship. This is only the tip of the iceberg ahead.

    How to ruin a great company, ChemTreat, in three easy lessons

    Pros

    Name recognition and decent health benefits

    Cons

    The support staff has been treated like slaves. Despite meeting targets, ChemTreat refused to give the average employee a raise. Desention amongst the lower managers and their staff runs high. People are in positions of higher management without the necessary education that most companies typically require. The company was once a proud employee owned place of business that attracted the top talent in the field of water treatment. Why anyone would choose ChemTreat for their career is beyond me (except for the need for a paycheck).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics. Remember what made ChemTreat great. Give the salesman the power to make business decisions for their territories. You are paying people of real profitability. Stop making up your own profit numbers and looking for ways to cut bonuses.
