Pros

- Good salary and benefits
- Access to the global Danaher careers network
- Teaching of the DBS system (better than I thought so long as you're motivated to learn)

Cons

- Senior management team (VP level) provide poor leadership (e.g. just make it happen rather than how can we solve this)
- Very high attrition rate
- Lack of promotions from within

Advice to Management

Very keen to see what will happen in the next 3-6 months. Hopefully the new president will look to clear out some of the fat at the VP level and bring about some real growth for 2012.

    Pretty good for a while, until Danaher took over and drove all the good people out.

    Pros

    Wide varieties of products and technologies. Lots of learning opportunities if you have the time and resources. Convenient office location.

    Cons

    Management treats employees poorly. They have the mentality that everyone is replaceable. Bad communications. Unreasonable policies deployed universally without considering whether they really apply in specific situations.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees are much more productive than disgruntled ones. Small gestures can do wonders when it comes to employee morales.
