    I worked at Danaher part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn and grow professionally for self-starters with initiative and drive. Good comp and benefits. Smart, professional colleagues. Very disciplined, successful approach to operations and financial management.

    Cons

    Cost-cutting and layoffs are excessive and damaging to business health and employee morale. Very focused on short term results versus true growth. Human resources and IT are very low priorities. Don't look for lots of approbation. Poor at true innovation and creative marketing & sales strategies. Process (DBS) can become form over substance, and is not effective in some areas of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Place a much higher value on the good people you have and demonstrate it. They will make you even more successful. You need to make "The Best Team Wins" a genuine cultural imperative, not just a hollow saying. As it is, employees view that "core value" as a bit of a joke.
