Pros

Good compensation, good benefits, some good people.

No work life balance. Profit is everything. Short sighted. Spreadsheet centric not sales centric.

Advice to Management

Your sales force is your true customer.

    I have been working at Danaher full-time

    Pros

    Lots of training in quality. Not so much practice. If they need you they pay well.

    Cons

    Every month the screws get tighter. Less vacation, fewer benefits, endless ways to chop nickles and dimes out of your total compensation.

    I worked at Danaher full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Danaher Business Systems (DBS) has value in identifying and tracking key metrics. Excellent comp and benefits

    Cons

    The purpose of DBS is to set the team up to not achieve their targets while pushing them to achieve as much as possible. Regardless of results you never feel like you are winning due the constant beat down you receive on a monthly basis. This results in very low job satisfaction and high turnover. Need to understand that not everything fits into DBS process. DBS doesn't work the same on the commercial side of the business as it does in operations. There is too much focus placed on internal metrics which will always cause pain to the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on DBS...use what is good but let the team feel like they are winning. Focus more on the customer and not just on the shareholders.
