    I have been working at Pall full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary - the salary is competitive - must be hazard pay !
    It's a large company and as such has some corporate culture / structure.
    Tea break time to talk with other employees.

    Cons

    - Leadership - does not exist - all Managers that are constantly firefighting
    - office / business culture - people don't "like to work" here, lots of upset, demotivated people
    - sucks the energy / motivation out of you
    - don't expect reviews or much communication with your boss
    - reviews not linked with goals and objectives or salary rises
    - expect to suck up and work lots of hours
    - training - you won't have time
    - you won't have time to resolve issues - just paper over the gaping cracks
    - change does not happen - the culture is not to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the poor Management, start Leading, communicating and respecting/empowering employees - then things will start to improve !

    Pros

    Used to pay well .Was an enjoyable place to work

    Cons

    Employees are just an expendable resource and the years of service count for nothing .At the bottom level your opinion doesn't count and is never asked for .Generally treated like children and all that counts is profit for the shareholders at the employees expense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as an asset

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with
    Exciting markets to work in
    Strong technologies still leading the market

    Cons

    Since the change in CEO, massive cut backs at the coal face, and ever increasing numbers of VPs appointed from the ranks of Friends of Larry, but very slow to bring forward concrete plans - long on talk, short on positive constructive action. Seem content to take the nice reward package, at the expense of the ordinary employee.
    Too much more from less.
    Lots of focus on emerging markets (BRICS, EMEA) but what VoC activity there is, is so US-centred that management will never properly understand what these markets need. Even in the US, Pall are divorced from real customer contact as there is no direct selling - how can they claim to understand their markets in such circumstances?
    No really new products in some core markets for many years, at least two years before changes in R&D will make a difference, if it survives that long.
    SLS was a core aspect of the selling model, but Industrial has been cut back so far, support to core business is all but impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start involving the coal face employees in planning how to change this organisation for the better.
    Drop your US-centric, not invented here arrogance, get into the real world and meet some dissatisfied customers.

    Pros

    Good training and salary / benefits. The work environment is clean and safe. Unless you have a college education you will only go so far and that is just fine.

    Cons

    No regard for a persons sleep habits or personal time. You are considered another piece of equipment to be used when necessary and to be let go of whenever they need to hire another vice president. This unfortunately is a sign of the times. Corporate greed at its very best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You may all sleep better at night if you would realize your employees deserve some respect as human beings. Some of you may feel this is just the way a business is run properly and others are just trying to climb the ladder stepping on other peoples fingers as you go. Karma will most likely be the winner in the end.

    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.

    Pros

    Friendly people who are very smart and intelligent. Benefit package is very good. Company execs have sent stock price through the roof. Huge emphasis on quality and creating new products. Workplace is very clean.

    Cons

    Local leadership is lacking. They are not on the same page and make decisions that don't make sense. Later on the workers have to work overtime to clean up the mess. Management believes in working short handed and don't schedule properly. Management doesn't care much about the workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat workers better
