Pros

The Danaher Benefit package is very good, employees have the ability to purchase company stock with their 401K plan.

PTO time off is very generous

Cons

understaffed IT department for some work sites, some work sites only have 1 single IT staff member onsite which makes it difficult to take PTO time off. Some worksites do not have someone onsite if they are within driving distance of another work site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

create more redundancy for each work site so if a key system goes down such as corporate email server or other hosted systems that there is a degree of autonomy that allows other sites to continue to function until the main system is restored. There should be a minimum of 2 IT team members for each facility, especially if that location requires their IT team to be on-call.

    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.
