No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good place to gain experience but I would not stay more than 3-5 years. Benefits are good. Salary ranges have not changed since the company started. Once you make it to a certain level, you never get another raise. It is almost impossible to get promoted. They might give you a new position but it's usually at the same salary.

Cons

They set goals that are unrealistic and unattainable. Part of the problem was because management has no idea how much time it takes to perform a job. My position required me to stay until 6-6:30pm every night, come in on weekends and to work on holidays, just to keep my head above water.

Advice to Management

Think about work life balance. Have defined career paths to get to the next level. Provide in house training to enhance employee knowledge.

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

    Pros

    Able to get things changed quickly, easy to move to different roles. Sister companies offer a ton of opportunity if you are willing to move.

    Cons

    Very high turnover, maybe due to remote location. This location is a cash cow with little investment in plant and equipment. There seemed to be a preference for ex-military for management promotions.

    I worked at Danaher full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, additional opportunities, Lean, safe work environment

    Cons

    Work never stops
    Goals are set so high, you are meant not to hit them
    Unless you are a "high potential" there is no clear path for advancement - and it is largely based on your individual manager as to how well you can do here.

    Advice to Management

    More career counseling and defined goals please.
