    Pros

    This could be a fun job if you like blowing things up. It is a fast paced environment where making the numbers is critical.

    Cons

    As a Danaher subsidiary, stretch goals are your goals and you expected to work until you get the job done...but you get paid for 40 hours per week whether you work 40, 50 or 60. The Senior Leadership is out of touch with the associates. They micromanage every detail.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people and listen to what they have to say. The team is good, but you need to let them do the right things without management dictating everything.

    Pros

    Was brought on to sell an exciting new product into a narrow market.

    Cons

    Talked a great story of how I would do great and they would cover all travel expenses and other business items. Months later- they have not paid a single invoice after telling me repeatedly the check was on the way.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make deals you don't intend to honor- your integrity and honor are now ruined with everyone I know.
