I have been working at Hach Company full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Easy fast track for the "chosen" I upper management...usually from Harvard or Bain. Simple Danaher lean management tools allow you to cut budgets easily across the board on new acquisitions while doing little else. Internal budgets have been frozen for years so there isn't much to do or decide.

Cons

Not a friendly place for the growth oriented. Not a friendly place for innovators. While perhaps a hundred brands have been rationalized under Hach, you won't find many examples of synergy or customer centric solutions being brought to the market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Measure and contrast the time you spend with PowerPoint with the time you spend with customers.

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

    Pros

    If you are lucky to get into management, and are willing to sell you soul to the Danaher system, you just need to keep checking off your growth actions and you'll keep rolling up the chain of command, true effectiveness be damned.

    Cons

    If you walk around the manufacturing cells, or the customer service cubes, the people actually look like zombies. Hard to explain. A co-worker, visiting the Loveland office for the first time, told me after 5 minutes, "this place has an evil presence". Sounds crazy, but I have never seen a more dismal place to work. Thank god I work from home for Hach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try being a little nicer to your teams. They will reward you with loyalty.

    I worked at Hach Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company is dedicated to Lean Principles. This was a good growth experience.
    Pay is reasonable.
    The people there are great. I enjoyed working with them even in difficult circumstances.

    Cons

    The company is under-resourced (people and systems) which makes for a stressful work environment.

    Hach quality systems are the worst that I have ever seen. Solving problems is very difficult as there is little data that can be trusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must take a more integrated approach to quality systems.
