    I have been working at Leica Biosystems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have been here for a little over 7 Years! And plan to retire from this organization one day!
    So many dedicated top talent associates who have a passion about the work we do! I enjoy getting to work with such great talent and to work with associates from other OpCos on projects. Very diverse and challenging organization that is results driven. Great positive and energized environment and culture, company values and high integrity.
    Lots of opportunities for career growth and professional development within the organization and a lot of trainings available! A great place to start your career or grow in your career. Very global company and associates have opportunities to move into new roles within current OpCo or even another OpCo under Danaher. I have been able to advance in my career several times during my tenure here.
    Danaher Business Systems (DBS) provides great tools to drive continuous improvement activities and focus! Very results driven company and focuses on continuous improvement.

    Cons

    Low scores on glassdoor not justified, but you usually only hear from those who have negative review vs those who are really happy here. This is not a company for those who are not committed to working in a fast-paced environment and using tools to measure results to ensure continuous improvement.
    Need more work around talent brand so people who are interested in learning about our organization can hear from associates who work here and what it is that they like about working for this organization and what has made them successful.

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt is dedicated and focuses on associate engagement from top down. Mgmt willing to listen and have been taking actions to keep associates engaged – keep up the great work!
    Keep up the good work with Diversity and Inclusion!

    IT Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Leica Biosystems (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    I felt very rushed to fly in for site visit because I was told they were going to move quick with decision. Interviews with 4 people all went fairly well. I assumed and was told I would know something by the following week.
    A week later I was informed I needed to meet with CFO. 3 separate interviews were setup and this guy did not make one nor did he follow-up. I've never experienced this level of unprofessionalism or disrespect from a potential employer. I had rescheduled meetings and moved things around to accommodate all 3 last minute meetings. The CFO finally sent me an email a week after missing meetings to propose 1 meeting time which was like in 2 hours but I couldn't make it and proposed additional times...never heard back from him or anyone else including HR. What a joke and a complete waste of time. It is clear that management and leadership is not great at this company and apparently very disrespectful and has a lack of regard for people in general!
