I have been working at Danaher full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Danaher pays well and seems to have a lot of upward opportunity for high performing employees.
True company wide culture around DBS and really accepts and implements lean processes - there are a variety of training opportunities within the company and the corporate level employees are brilliant.

Cons

Danaher is very demanding and can be a high stress environment. Sometimes the decisions that are made are more focused on the short term bottom line versus the long term success and sometimes at the expensive of the customer.

Advice to Management

Stay in touch with your operating company level leadership and what they are doing. I think the corporate VPs should meet with middle managers at the operating company to get a better view of what is really going on and how customers are impacted.

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

    Pros

    They leave you room to grow up in pay and responsibility when you start a job at Danaher. If you work for an acquired Danaher company be prepared to work hard and cut out wasted tasks (process improvement)

    Cons

    Most of their systems don't talk to one another and yet detail reports are requested on demand.

    Advice to Management

    High paying chiefs are paid well, but sometimes it feels like there are not enough Indians.

    I have been working at Danaher as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The corporate Danaher does not seem to mess around with the division level companies and obstruct their operational strategy/tactics (good thing) but provides reasonable structure and financial backing when needed.

    Cons

    Unwilling to be flexible when it comes to things like vacation. Some methodologies in place (e.g. expenses) that seem very antiquated and cumbersome.

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing division-level independence with respect to operational tactics and allow more flexibility for unique division culture.
