Cut-throat, HR is very scientific, if you're not moving up better move out.

    Focus on improvement, means no communication until you do something wrong

    I have been working at Danaher

    Pros

    Few redundant roles, ability to identify a problem and work on the solution, opportunity to move between companies if you are good at your job

    Cons

    Only one person to handle multiple jobs, so you are always waiting in line to get someone to do the work you need them to do. You will not really know when you have done something well based on management feedback, but will surely know when you have done something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having great ideas with no people to implement them because associates are doing multiple jobs is frustrating and stagnates the business growth opportunities.

    I worked at Danaher

    Pros

    Danaher is a great place to work if you are process orientated, highly structured, and results driven. In addition, small operating companies are a plus because you get the feeling of working in a smaller company with the benefits of a larger one.

    Cons

    Danaher can be a tough place to work in terms of work life balance and stress. In addition, the very flat management structure means that sometimes there is no-where to get promoted to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk when it comes to your 'the best team wins' values. Do this by treating employees with respect and compassion. Some times the last $ cut can have lasting negative impacts on the team and its motivation.
