Area Manager (Former Employee) – Calabasas Hills, CA – March 19, 2018
Danaher companies usually don't pay very well. While I was there, it was a fairly easy job. Pay could've been better. The product line was good. What the company lacks is an employee advancement career ladder.
Horrible place to work for temps. Management has set the tone for how temps should be treated. They associate a stigma with all temps.
Accounts Receivable Reconciler (Former Employee) – Thousand Oaks, CA – February 8, 2018
I do not advise Temps to work there. Management as well as permanent employees look down on temps. They go out of their way to remind you that you are a temp. You will be excluded from participating in any company activites, you are not allowed to make up any lost time or do do overtime, although the regular employees are allowed to make up time and do unlimited unauthorized overtime. Regular employees do not talk to you unless it is work related. Temps are watched like a hawk whereas regular employees have very little supervision. They associate a stigma with all temp workers, you are not respected, they see you as a loser. They take advantage of the temp by piling on the work.
Marketing Coordinator, Special Markets (Current Employee) – Valencia, CA – December 4, 2017
They talk about process but don't believe in process. They think they want to get things done, but people who have been around years don't want to see things change. Constantly dealing with roadblocks and interference. No real team support to get anything done.
Disarray with Management, and very unprofessional behavior.
Regional Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, AR – October 16, 2017
There was no formal, directed or even suggested training. Veteran Reps were extremely negative and procedures were poorly understood. The product line was competitive, but the high turn-over rate in the field made the company perception rather poor. There was a negative tone and very few employees had been with the company more than 18 months. Rumors and gossip were distracting. Management was obtuse and distant- things said in group settings were shocking and inappropriate. It was impossible to get tech support or rely upon direction. Many problems appeared to be confusion from mergers, but it left the Reps in limbo quite often. Some territories were exceptionally large and required extensive driving- that was difficult to manage because there was no travel policy in place.
A Salesman's product- fair and worthy challenge
Obtuse Managerial direction and poor examples in authority roles
Consultant (Former Employee) – Calabasas, CA – May 24, 2014
Only a three month consulting job. Honest about it from the get go. Manager a great teacher and treated you as part of the team. Company was kind enough to allow us to attend their Christmas party.
Manager worked with me to allow me to go on an interview for my next assignment. Also gave us two weeks notice of when the project would end. Admired the Manager's integrity. Would definitely work for this manager again.
Liked the manager I worked for.
The scope of the work needed more time to assess the issue coreectly.
Regulatory Affairs Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calabasas, CA – September 17, 2012
Days are very busy, typically work on 5-7 projects on any given day. The people are really great to work with. I love the challenge of juggling numerous projects at once. The hardest part of my job is waiting on important information from other. I enjoy working with a variety of different regulatory agencies globally
