I have been working at Danaher full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Will gain great experience and knowledge, especially when involved heavily with DBS (Danaher Business Systems)
- Can drive amazing short term results

Cons

- Shark Tank!
- Nothing matters other than metrics, cost savings, and results for the sake of upper management and shareholders; leads to massive shortcutting and neglecting of core values and top two publicized metrics (Safety, Quality)
- DBS can be utilized for better purposes; company talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk
- Impossible to succeed at OpCos (subsidiaries) that have been leaned out (anorexic state) and suffering from lack of reinvestment while cost metrics become more rigid; Danaher succeeds while subsidiaries eventually fail

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Walk the walk and reinvest in the business. Lean should be used to make the business more efficient, thereby making room to bring in more business and opportunities, not cut heads. Danaher seems stuck in the 80's/90's.

    I have been working at Danaher full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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