I have been working at Danaher full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great focus on continuous improvement in a collegial, non-blaming environment. Great opportunities for career growth across the many companies Danaher owns. Wide variety of science, technology and environmental companies under the Danaher umbrella. Senior management is excellent. Lots of highly intelligent people in the company.

Cons

Sometimes the decentralized nature of the company means several operating companies are duplicating efforts. Like most publicly-traded companies there is an intense focus on meeting Wall Street's numbers each quarter.

Advice to Management

Continue the focus on keeping the unique culture that makes Danaher great.

    I worked at Danaher full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Metric driven organization with high levels of accountablitly. Heavy focus on Lean Manufacturing and continuous improvement. Upper management provides tools necessary to achieve goals.

    Cons

    Metrics are everything at Danaher. They strive to make sure everyone knows the rules of the game and what both winning and losing looks like. However, if you are in a division that is suffering financially the game is impossible to win.

    Advice to Management

    Become more involved with projects throughout the month and not just for montly reviews.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Danaher full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary, and decent 401k match and profit contribution after 1 year.

    Cons

    As other reviews have pointed out, Danaher is interested only in the bottom-line. Work/life balance is not a concern for them. No sick days, so have to use vacation, and it takes a very long time to get additional vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    Don't discuss incentive comp plan bonuses around non-management employees that are not eligible.
