    I have been working at Hach Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • Hach is a global industry leader with a unique mission but it is also a Danaher operating company.

    • Danaher is #144 on the F200, has grown over 1300% in the past 20 years, and is an outstanding parent company.

    • Hach is a Global Environmental & Applied Solutions company with a worthy mission: ensuring water quality for people around the world.

    • Danaher is a global family of over 20 science and technology companies, focused on innovative solutions to improve quality of life around the world.

    • All Hach team members can internally promote across all of Danaher operating companies.

    • We are united by Danaher's Core Values, the Danaher Business System, and our Shared Purpose - helping realize life's potential.

    • For the reasons mentioned above, Hach attracts and retains top talent.

    Cons

    • The interview process is very selective and interviews dive deep. It's is intense, it's certainly a F200 company.

    • The family of global companies and brands are extensive and learning Hach's extended family is daunting.

    • I am rarely the smartest person in the room so I have to work hard to keep up!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! My leaders walk the talk. They attract and then invest in exceptional people, they drive improvement through innovation, they listen, and they have a deep commitment to realizing my full potential

    Pros

    Hach belongs to Danaher, a fortune 500 company, and opportunities exist with other op-co's. Friendly people.

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

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits, great people including managers on up. Very large product line, good training, and Field service dept very responsive and cared about it's people

    Cons

    Field software would get easily corrupted making doing daily required reports problematic. Sometimes lost entire job's reports which meant starting over doing reports again for every instrument done for that job.
    Metrics didn't factor in problems beyond your control. Difficult to also maintain a work/life balance. You're always ordering, receiving, and stocking parts and standards and making sure on Friday afternoon that you had jobs confirmed and all the parts and consumables necessary for that week's job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overload your district managers and allow them to manage their teams. Emphasize the importance of knowing and understanding those that work for them making sure they have the time to manage the relationships.

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

    Pros

    Overall, I think that Hach has a bright future. I have never worked someplace that had so many smart, dedicated and considerate people and good people is what makes successful companies really excel.

    The mission of Hach - ensuring water quality for people around the world - really resonates as well. It is evident that this higher-level goal is also top of mind for management, as is developing talent and seeing people grow in their careers.

    Cons

    It is definitely a hard working culture, which can occasionally get in the way of more relaxing time off. There is also not a lot of recognition for people that go above and beyond - seems that is just the expectation.

    Advice to Management

    Get out to Gemba more and really see the work being done. Could give you a new sense of appreciation for how great your employees really are and, perhaps, encourage you to up the rewards and recognition as well.
