I worked at Danaher full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Metric driven organization with high levels of accountablitly. Heavy focus on Lean Manufacturing and continuous improvement. Upper management provides tools necessary to achieve goals.

Cons

Metrics are everything at Danaher. They strive to make sure everyone knows the rules of the game and what both winning and losing looks like. However, if you are in a division that is suffering financially the game is impossible to win.

Advice to Management

Become more involved with projects throughout the month and not just for montly reviews.

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

    Pros

    Great focus on continuous improvement in a collegial, non-blaming environment. Great opportunities for career growth across the many companies Danaher owns. Wide variety of science, technology and environmental companies under the Danaher umbrella. Senior management is excellent. Lots of highly intelligent people in the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes the decentralized nature of the company means several operating companies are duplicating efforts. Like most publicly-traded companies there is an intense focus on meeting Wall Street's numbers each quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on keeping the unique culture that makes Danaher great.
