    I worked at Danaher

    Pros

    Employees are encouraged to strive for excellence at all times which also motivates personal growth. There are many opportunities to learn and expand your knowledge as well as training. Many great people work there, the most enjoyable part of the job was to be around such wonderful people.

    Cons

    Due to the constant pressure the company puts on their employees it is a very stressful to be an employee there. Employees are required to conduct many self assessments each year but are rarely rewarded for their efforts.

    Challenging daily work environment, talented management, high expectations. If you are willing to work hard, ask questions, and show you are committed, it is a great place to begin your career or grow your career. Also many locations around the country and world

    Business moves very quickly which can be frustrating for some. Acquisitions of other companies are frequent and can cause confusion about how company will be integrated into the existing Danaher operating company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communicate more on where we are going with products and direction in the marketplace, how we are going to continue winning

    I worked at Danaher

    Pros

    Office culture was good, fairly laid back. DBS and 5S were good tools to have and were definitely enforced. Would work for Danaher again!

    Cons

    Benefits weren't great, but better than most. Raises and reviews didn't always happen in a timely fashion. Promotions weren't always encouraged from within.
