I have been working at Danaher full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

continuous changes and process oriented

Cons

continual cost cutting measures with head count reductions happening for the past 3 years. All happening in December.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs to communicate more effectively.
Internal memo congratulated and thanked the teams for making Q2 a success. We made the numbers for Wall Street and received our Bonus. The next line said that we should expect cost cutting measures in Q3 and Q4 (i.e. head count reductions)

    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.
