Pros

If you like other people and departments taking credit for what you have accomplished, then Danaher is your kind of place. New bosses about every year or so. They get fired and you have a new boss to train! Fun!

Cons

Danaher is as shallow as an empty aquarium. Management has bonuses for their rudder and a map (DBS) to navigate a very small boat. Not everyone can get into this small boat and therefore most will perish to the un-employment line... Top-graded (fired) with-out any life preserver.

Individuals thinking about Danaher beware! Don't waste your experience or degree on Danaher. It is an inquisitional company and does not have time for your career! Please research beyond SEC filings’.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None! You know everthing for now but most of you will be top-graded! Ha!

    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.

    Cut-throat, HR is very scientific, if you're not moving up better move out.

    Pros

    Stock purchase program, some good co-workers if they are with the company from before the time DHR had purchased them.

    Cons

    Reverence for MBAs and ability to grow professionally without being in the talent funnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage all employees in their professional development.
