Pros

Excellent learning experience. Competitive pay. If you want to lead and excel and work in a competitive environment, this place is for you

Cons

If it's not, and you want to find a job that you like and can stay at for a long time, need not apply.

Despite all their talk, the managers have no control. They are still lower on the hill in the direction of leadership. If you want to excel, just complete your tasks. They don't have to be right, they just need to be on time. They prefer to throw it up on the wall, rather than put any rational thought behind it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Read the comments here! You treat your employees like a statistic and don't hide the fact. Forcing a furlough with 8% in sales growth despite no investment, hiring freeze, penny pinching scrutiny only to meet a short term goal, sits very poorly with your staff and employees that work for us.

    Pros

    Great business system and tools. Outperforms by outworking the competition. Success for those willing to sacrifice and deliver results.

    Cons

    Work / life balance will be a problem for many, but if you know this is an issue you may want to steer clear. "Average" performers will struggle here, and will likely be disappointed with career progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasis on growth and share price is causing deterioration of Operations and Engineering. Don't lose sight of what creates value for customers because you're too narrowly focused on the shareholder. Take care of customers and employees and the shareholders will come.

    Pros

    Stable, well-run company that performs in down-turned economies. The Danaher Business System is a proven success. Open communication amongst operating companies is fantastic and leads to further success.

    Cons

    Expectations are high, so associates are driven to work longer hours when a lot is on the line. Travel can be a bit too much at times.
