    Pros

    This is the first place I've worked where career development is actually a priority. And it's not just lip service - they actually give you the tools and resources to increase your self worth.

    Cons

    I'm disappointed by how little we give back. I mean we do, but it's not much compared to companies who have a lot less money. Be nice if they did a donation matching program for employees, increased the number of scholarships available toward kids etc.

    Also work/life balance has a long way to go. We are getting there and it really depends on your manager.

    I worked at Danaher full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are great

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about staff - they're a revolving door. Lower level associates are pretty much on their own. Everyone is over worked and every team is understaffed. Work life balance is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    If everyone matters - prove it.

    Pros

    Some good people still there.
    A pay check
    Lots of unnecessary OT
    Free stuff from Uline.....lol
    You get to take a survey about Leica that nobody listens too the responses

    Cons

    •MGT hasn’t a clue of how to run a true healthcare company. They only care about OTD
    •If DBS are such great tools then why don’t you utilize them to there FULL potential??
    •MGT says they have great associates and that it is a great place to work but in 2017 I saw 73 great associates from the Richmond facility QUIT for better jobs?? Isn’t that contradicting??
    •I love reading the MGT person who wrote the review
    “Great place to work”!! That guy really doesn’t get it whatsoever!!
    •There was actually a HR lady who walked into the XP Tank room and within literally 5 seconds she couldn’t see because her eyes were burning so bad from the fumes!!
    •Engagement surveys are literally a complete joke. Many many workers don’t even participate in taking the survey because nothing gets done.
    •There are still action plans from 2015 employee engagement survey that were not even completed!!
    Everyone (6 associates) from one of the teams don’t even work there anymore!!
    •Associate participation at Department QDIP boards is very low because nobody listens. Half of the people required to participate on QDIP walks most of the time don’t even show up to listen what each department has to say!! Great DBS tool at its best!!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen too and implement what associates on floor say.
    Major investment on 17th century equipment is needed!!!
    Better ventilation is also needed
    I saw from August 2017-October 2017 five temporary workers quit within 2 weeks of there start date due to there eyes burning, nose burning, difficulties in swallowing and vomiting all from the chemical fumes.
    That needs to be fixed!! Many people have complained about the poor ventilation but mgt doesn’t listen.
