Data Consultant (Former Employee) – Washington/Metro, DC – December 12, 2016
Danaher provides a highly flexible work environment for employees, with lots of open spaces for employees to work from, rather than confining them to one office space. Overall, it was a good experience.
It was something different to do daily, from running a machine, to set up a machine, maybe go to a different department and do some type of work, I liked the management, Co-workers was great to work with, the hardest part of the job was learning how to set up and run a grind and stamp machine, the enjoyable part was learning everything that I could in the company and to be able to go to any department to work.

Work there was like anywhere else,you do your job everything goes fine.I worked in many areas in plant, we made craftsman tools and packed them to be shipped to sears and other places.Their was a lot of good people working there and miss seeing them every day.The hardest part of the day was when four or five trucks came in at same time to be loaded, it was like none stop and some times overtime.
We had a lot of cook outsand tool sales for employs

Cell Associate / Warehouse Stockroom (Former Employee) – Rockford, IL – October 24, 2016
I enjoyed my time at Danaher Motion, I held a number of positions there, as I worked there for 30+ years. The management created a lean work atmosphere, that challenged us as a team. The hardest part of the job was to make our daily rates. We all pitched in as a team to make our rates, and our work experience enjoyable.
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – August 30, 2016
Daily working with customers world wide through emails and some phone calls.
Learned more about end of life management.
Management changed during my time here. Too many changes all at once made things very difficult. No change over time to accommodate changes. Retired too many people all at once with a huge loss in contacts and information.
Co-workers for the most part was easy to work with most of the time.
No collaboration with other areas to stream line processes.
Working with data collection and system conversions.
Working wit engineering and service centers world wide
Hours didn't accommodate service centers world wide
Great company to apply leadership and management skills
Sr. Director - Product Management (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 19, 2016
Trains its leadership on "Danaher Business System" principles. Leaders are then expected to drive rigor, build talent that promotes the DBS culture. The result is every employee thinks and solves problems like a scientist. Status quo is constantly questioned and business model continuously strengthened.
Customer Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – August 8, 2016
Good company to work for. Very busy!! Customer care has expanded many roles and back up many other divisons in the company. A typical day is answering the phine to customers calling for repairs, returns, or want to place an order. Data entry for orders, returns, repairs, etc. Creating UPS labels for returns, Entering credits. My coworkers were always friendly and helpful, as was the management team. The hardest part of my job was the stress of a complaining customer. The most enjoyable part was being on the morale team and planning team building events for the staff. I liked working for Danaher.
Materials Buyer/Planner II (Former Employee) – Glendora, CA – July 9, 2016
The Danaher company that I worked at was wonderful, pre-Danaher. When Danaher takes over, although tough, the business improvements are definitely good for the business. The people, however, suffer. There is complete lack of concern for long-term employees; people who have no other skill than what they have been doing for 30-40 years. They do not want old people or old "tainted" culture. If you are young and ready to climb a ladder, this is the place for you. Otherwise, steer clear.
Danaher/Human Resources lack concern for the "humans".
Undisclosed (Current Employee) – Georgia – June 16, 2016
Many opportunities to learn, but very few opportunities to advance. Work/Life balance non-existent. Feel like you are an infidel if you need to work at home, call out sick, apply for FMLA or handle personal family matters. Currently, there are NO managers as all have left for other, more lucrative and appreciative opportunities.
Executive leadership does not follow through on engaging employees or developing them for growth. There is a whole division of employees who are heavily engaged in helping the business leaders implement company strategy, but are completely ignored and continuously unrecognized.
This job was challenging and i love a good challenge. I found this job very rewarding. The 200 people that reported to me were an absolute pleasure to work with. Together we built a great team and became the top in this facility.
