    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Beckman Coulter full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good sense of teamwork and collaboration in the interaction of managers engaged in a matrix style organization, symbolized by the corporate slogan "We are Better Together"

    Cons

    In the recent downsizing subsequent to the acquisition by Danaher Corporation, there was an exodus of substantial experience from the organization. Unclear what short term impact will be on the organization; longer term the organization will be great.very competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Important that communication at all corporate levels be strong and clear to overcome some of the unfortunate communication gaps experienced in the 4th Quarter 2011.
