Pros

Danaher is a large "corporation" but only a holding company for a lot of different companies.

Cons

The "corporation" is not directly involved with the many business units it owns. The main players in the company have been very successful with the business ventures they have purchased. They are basically investments brokers and mostly buy and dismantle companies. There is an abundance of cash and a lot of stock has been sold as many of the dominant owners are retiring. Beware if you see or hear that your company is or will be purchased by the Danaher Corporation

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is no advise to give because of the way things are structured. It's the "Danaher Way" or no way.

    Focus your organization on your customers and not on internal Danaher approaches and processes.

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits. Allows for international travel.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Lack of balance between work and personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more customer focused and less focused on monthly revenue. Place more emphasis on new product development and stop trying to suck more income out of old products.

    Pros

    Focus on Lean Management and practices many tools from the Toyota Production System toolkits. Good management focus with many metrices to follow up on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Whenever an organization gets too large, there are bound be a few areas with conflict of interests. Strategies have to be deployed down clearly and expectations aligned. Personal experience - plans made but scrapped without explanation. When leaders don't listen, the organization suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your people and their skills and careers - not everything is about bottom line or getting that lean cycle in place. Invest in people and provide them with a place that they can learn and contribute, and be able to enjoy some sense of belonging.
