    Pros

    Danaher, Danaher, Danaher. Great framework for success that will outlast the bad seeds. If you like to work really hard to solve challenging problems in a structured environment, this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Terrible technology infrastructure and almost no competent resources to better the situation; too much politics instead of teamwork often causes wasted resources; building/carpet is disgusting and the cubes are life-sucking; HORRIBLE recent changes in director level marketing causing major fallout--exodus of extremely talented marketers is well on its way as a result. Senior level leadership is aware of the problem and expresses sympathy but arguable has done nothing to correct the problem. Real shame.

    Advice to Management

    Apply the same rigor to being best in class with your technology infrastructure as you do in business and you'll go farther faster. And you KNOW you have a problem on your L1 marketing team--you should fix it before you lose countless $$ in talent. People with 5, 10, 15 years with the company want to bail right now (not to mention recent big-gun hires) because of daily problems one horrible person and it's completely avoidable.

    Pros

    Overall high quality product within core business and a decent overall package.

    Cons

    Count too many beans at all of their "Leadership" Levels while they over process everything. You will need permission to take a dump.

    Hire people you trust then get out of their way.

    Pros

    Some good people embedded in the matrix.
