    In totality, my experience at Videojet / Danaher was positive.

    I worked at Videojet Technologies Inc full-time

    Pros

    Very disciplined, process oriented, well run business. The Danaher Business Systems (DBS) is excellent training for anyone with management ambitions. Compensations is in line with peer organizations.

    Cons

    Although a blameless work environment is a core value of the Danaher Business System, Videojet can tend to be "blame oriented." Although it is not always the case, employee feedback is typically disregarded or ignored by senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current President is very aloof.

    It started out very pleasant, but is quickly becoming a drain

    Pros

    The flexibility of my schedule is a big perk, probably the nicest thing about working here. Bonuses are nice to get, and there is POTENTIAL for huge payouts. The job comes with a pretty decent company car, which employees are allowed to use for their own personal use: very nice!

    Cons

    My paycheck is going down every year?? Bonuses are nice to get, but I would much rather have a higher base salary with smaller bonuses. The base pay goes up, but bonus structures have been designed to be more difficult to achieve, resulting in less overall payouts. It feels like the people who make big bonuses are the same people who overcharge customers to the point of submission into a contract. People that don't perform well are retained, even though customer reviews consistently state obvious dissatisfaction. The "team mentality" is not present because certain people are allowed to pick and choose what work they do and what work they push off on others. Career progression: you've got two promotions before you hit the top, thats it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of focusing primarily on revenue, spend much more time encouraging quality of service.

    Pros

    One of the great parts of Videojet is the ability to continue to improve business and manufacturing processes. Since the company is a subset of Danaher, Videojet uses the Danaher Business Systems to continuously improve everyday efforts and long term goals. You do feel ownership of an area or contribution to the greater whole.

    Cons

    If you are accustomed to minimal changes in your work, this company changes frequently that it could derail you from being successful. Understanding and researching the Danaher Business System methodology would give you insight on how the company is managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop members from the bottom up. Your talent is found in those who work closest with the product you deliver.

    I have been working at Videojet Technologies Inc full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training , bonus plan, technical support team works well with field employees. Company vehicles policy is nice...no need to buy a personal car if you work long term. Almost most other field employees are pretty good (educated, good with customers etc)

    Cons

    Nothing bad enough worth listing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more room for growth to CSEs in other areas of business... We really do help make up a good portion of the back bone of this company and generate a lot of growth

    Pros

    Great place to learn, work hard and develop

    Cons

    People are treated with little to no respect. Joakim Weidemanis talks a good talk but he's the worst of them all. He is completely focused on his own success but in town hall meetings tries to present himself as this nice, down to Earth guy....don't believe it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trying being human to your employees.

    A stable Danaher Subsidiary, compensation average to similar industries but not anything extraordinary.

    Pros

    Great pay, good hours and excellent bonus program. Company car, laptop and cell phone included. Great team work with fellow employees. Very professional atmosphere, good leadership.

    Cons

    Travel was expected and many hours/day you did not receive compensation for that travel time. Required to work with hazardous materials. Creating job revenue was sometimes difficult when business was at a low point. Technicians were more focused on being "salesmen" rather then technical troubleshooters. Constantly monitored for revenue production and location in the field was monitored by GPS. It was fairly monitored, but often resulted in confusion due to additional job aspects which took time throughout the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Require less effort on the side of the technician to produce revenue by having appointments arranged in advance.
