    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!

    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.

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

    Free fruits and drink

    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
    Overall I don't think it's a people company

    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 full-time

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic amount of internal talent.

    Very broad market coverage that somewhat isolates Pall from the up and down cycles you see with companies that only sell into one or two markets.

    Good cash reserves that allow them to aggressively develop solutions to address portfolio gaps.

    Cons

    Huge amount of confusion in the engineering community caused by Pall"s Sage Gate Process, which is THE MOST complicated one I have ever seen.

    Pall's Gate process doesn't work for novel products that have significant technical challenges that need to be solved before they would be commercially viable.

    Zenophobic mentality makes it impossible to gather realistic and meaningful customer feedback early in the product development process....................historically pall spends years developing a product before it is ever shown to anyone outside the company. Pall management recognizes that this needs to be improved, but they have not implemented disclosure strategies the would allow allow marketing or engineering to gather reliable customer feedback early in the development process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pall's ultimate mission is to offer solutions that allow our customers separate, purify or concentrate product. Our endgame is not to fill in all the boxes on the myriad of checklists that are in the stage gate process.

    Simplify the Stage gate Development process and publish exemplary examples that will be used as guides for future gate submissions.

    Hire project managers whose sole purpose is to move projects through the gate process.
