    I have been working at Danaher full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Premiere for learning lean practices, especially at an established part of the company. Lots of smart people. If you are willing to work hard and navigate the politics, you can get a great name on your resume and learn how to be ruthless. It will may working anywhere else look easy. Get to learn change management.

    Cons

    Generally the management style is one of overachieving, insecure, high ego folks who don't want to be bothered helping develop others. When things don't go perfectly, be prepared that someone will be blamed. If you're really good at your job, you get the chance to work in the underperforming or newly acquired businesses to turn them around - which means your bonus won't pay out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to your core values and drive process adherence and take the time to teach.

    I have been working at Danaher full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    401k and retirement contributions are fine.

    Cons

    Turnover is extreme, average 1 salaried employee every 12-weeks. Continuous culture of blame and a very hostile environment. There is no stepping up to admit problems because there are negative repercussions to anything off plan, or any miss on "stretch" goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make this a place people want to work. Focus on the people and not so much the numbers. Empower the employees. Stop the blame game. Stop the micro-management. This is not healthcare, peoples lives are not in the balance. This is manufacturing, and profits are there. Stop the "stretch" goals.
