    I have been working at Danaher full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many growth opportunities available and a great business system in place to support you. The continuous improvement activities that go around the company always give you an opportunity to learn and develop yourself.

    Cons

    A very much results driving organization that requires you to perform day in, day out. But then again which large multinational doesn't have this.

    Pros

    If you have no interest in working, you can just smile and say "yes" to all the comments, you are good to go

    Cons

    Worse place too work, zero learning, no passion or motivation, small group of 2-3 people, hire interns with cheapest rate and ask them work more than full-times with no learning, none of the project are delivered complete, the manager has a very short-time vision of success, no interest in delivering their responsibilities right, I can go on and go on, there is no end for cons of the data science team at Danaher Labs

    Advice to Management

    "time" is the post precious fortune that is being waste by wrong and unprofessional management. Management is an important skill, not just a position you accept to get paid more. you have a responsibility about your employees career and growth. it is not limited to bossing around people.

    Environment is positive, engaging, diverse and challenging. The teams work hard, enjoy themselves and support one another. They are supportive to new employees by running them immersion and giving them time to acclimate to the new company, processs and peers.

    Cons

    On-boarding needs some work for new employees. Resources always seem to be a little short.

    Pros

    Good name; nice projects

    Cons

    Crazy people, lack of common sense

    Advice to Management

    Hire normal people. Gina, in legal, is seriously the craziest person I have ever dealt with professionally. How can a lawyer possibly lack common sense?

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Some of the OPCOs have a decent culture. Nothing good can be said about the corporate division.

    Cons

    Danaher doesn't care about employees only bottom line
    Development initiatives are only targeted at top leadership
    Engagement initiatives do not exist
    I regret working here (Danaher corporate) - does nothing for your career.
    No one stays long term
    Senior leaders are almost selfish trying to drive their own agenda..
