    Current Employee - Operations in Newquay, England

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

    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.
