Good pay, challenging work environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Pall full-time

ProsThere are a lot of great people to work with, lots of flexibility to work from home when needed, people work really hard

ConsWorkload is overwhelming to almost impossible, lack of appropriate resources or tools, lack of training or on-boarding for new hires. Need to figure things out on your own. Top heavy organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementShould be a more formal and informal recognition programs. Focus more on levels below executive

Not a place for career development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Pall full-time

ProsVarious products and many smart and technical people working around. Stock purchase plan is OK. Winter shutdown is a good time for Christmas season.

ConsToo many directors/VPs/SVPs, way more than any big companies I worked. Old management team from Dr. Pall's time is extincting, many of current middle/high level managers are excellent masters of office politics learned from their previous employers, however have limited knowledge about techniques that Pall need. There are lots of turnarounds in administrative and technical departments in these years; people in Pall now gets used to hear the leave of respectable senior employee every few weeks; and some senior employees were just laid off after a short project discussion or argument at a meeting if it did not make upper level managers happy, and left a large team/project unattended. The working environment becomes somewhat hostile; no smooth communication and friendly assist can be easily found around, people have their territory. Complains can be often heard from new hires, many new employees work only for living, no mood for career development, and they keep seeking other opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a stable environment, do not set up too many managers, reduce the politics and build a friendly and respecting environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good autonomy and job security, short on innovation and inspiration

Account Manager (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA (US)

I worked at Pall full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis is a good company for self-driven individuals. If you have no issue going after the knowledge you want to succeed at your job and are a people person by nature, you will succeed. There is a good amount of autonomy to make your own schedule and meetings.

ConsThe lack of innovation with respect to marketing strategies/product launch campaigns, internal communication, and customer service often consumed a lot of time that should have been devoted to selling and building relationships. There was a disjointed feeling among the groups about the company's mission. An attitude and cohesive message should come from the top. Unfortunately the bulk of your communications from upper management would be about quarterly sales numbers, setting up meetings for them because they wanted to travel in your territory (for no apparent reason) and what were your greatest 'fires' that required their attention. The potential is there. Only time will tell.

Advice to Senior ManagementPutting out fires is not an effective way to do business. Preventing the start of the fires in the first place is.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
