I worked at Danaher full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Lot of autonomy, good salaries and bonuses

Cons

Lack of management, no communication

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't penalize someone for being out sick. I missed two days in six months and was told that nobody ever misses work there. In fact, there are people who have been there for years who have never missed a single day of work. I was not hired permanently because of this, but they would not tell me that. They just kept overlooking me for open positions that I was well-qualified for.

    I have been working at Danaher full-time

    Pros

    Recognition for results, fast paced, very good environment for driver personalities.

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain work life balance. Will take as much as you allow. You must have incredibly honed task management and prioritization skills to thrive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow talent organically. There are a number of very talented employees with runway. Stop cycling MBA candidates with no experience through jobs they have no prior skills with. They're in the role just long enough to make a mess for others to clean up then they get promoted. It leads to poor morale among those who drive true accomplishments.

    I worked at Danaher full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Results focus
    Profitable company
    DBS
    People

    Cons

    Focus on #'s at the expense of people
    politics (not everywhere - but getting worse)
    HR is becoming more powerful = more BS and less ability to move quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let all of the OP's talent leave - remember how we got to be this great of a company (DBS and great OP's guys!)
