    Pros

    The company looks after it's staff. High quality of accommodation when travelling for company

    Cons

    It's hard to move up the ladder. Focus on cost's is huge. No new products. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Plenty of managers trying to justify their existence - complex management structure. Little opportunity for employees to voice their thoughts on company direction. Sales Incentive Plan does not provide incentive to perform. Sales projections don't reflect the existing market conditions - too high for industry down turn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the work life balance. Let employees have a voice that is listened to, backed up with results rather than empty promises.

    I have been working at Pall full-time

    Pros

    Interesting technologies and product development programs. There are also some very gifted and professional people within the group.

    Cons

    Disconnected senior managers and a cancerous culture of poor leadership capabilities being rewarded and a focus on shareholder return rather than employee retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to motivate with training and mentor-ship not through fear of termination. There is a work culture inconsistent with modern work life that deems the employee as a necessary evil from a P&L standpoint rather than a valued team member contributing to the success of the P&L.

    I have been working at Pall

    Pros

    Started off as a wonderful experience. Company provided training and rewarded employees.

    Cons

    Budget cuts eliminated training and most of the R&D group. Low morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to Pall's value which is filtration. Don't go into a certain market just because the new leadership is familiar with it.

    Pros

    Lucky I have a very good boss, he gave my plenty opportunities and I learned a lot. I had very happy 3 years here

    Cons

    Organization structure keep on changing and changing. hard to get the sustaining pictures
    Although CEO keep on mentioning we made very good profit, but it didn't reward to employee

    Pros

    Pretty good salary. Nice vacation package. Loved the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Outside sales people treated poorly. Expectations constantly were changing and so it was hard to meet obligations sometimes. Lots of good-ol-boy mentality. Worked here before Eric Krasnoff left, so can't speak of the atmosphere today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect employees more.

    I have been working at Pall as a contractor

    Pros

    No reason to work here.

    Cons

    In my opinion, Pall is a No value, No credit company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my experience, HR has no clue that there are other counrties including Canada exists on this earth. Their slowest response with full of errors ruined my desire to work at Pall.

    However, after reading the reviews of past & current employees, I am glad I am not working here!

    Pros

    Getting paid on time. Some decent people work here. If you hate career advancement you will love Pall.

    Cons

    Everything else. Pall is very cheap, below average raises and salaries. Management is a disorganized mess who treat employees like trash. This is a dead end company with nowhere to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take your big stock options and leave. That would be the best.

    I have been working at Pall full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I can't think of a good reason to recommend working here. There is literally no advantage to working here over anywhere else.

    Cons

    The company doesn't pay anywhere near market rates. Line management and HR are out of sync on what employee positions are and what they're pay should be. Make sure you get everything in writing, you'll need it later. Without a doubt, this was the worst the worst experience of my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your HR function under control. There are some seriously outrageous abuses of your people happening through there.

    Goals have become very short term and focused on financial performance only at the expense of technology leadership.

    I have been working at Pall full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very diversified company. Good exposure to both Life Sciences and Industrial business. Benefits in general are good but the endless cost cutting is taking a toll.

    Cons

    Senior leadership's goals are clearly short term. Financial community seems to not notice the complete lack of a long term strategy. Benefits and resource cost cutting are being offset by excessive executive compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategy for the future beyond the next quarter, one that reaches beyond the Power Point phase. The lack of fresh ideas is truly bleak.
