    Great experience, difficult upward mobility

    TFF Applications R&D Engineer I (Current Employee) Westborough, MA

    ProsPall has allowed me to get some great hands-on experience in the Biopharmaceutical industry. It provided me with a balance of lab work, analysis, and reporting, greatly enhancing my professional skills.

    ConsI have been working as a contractor for almost 2 years and there seems to be little opportunities for that to turn into a full time position. From my conversations with others, it also seems that upward mobility and promotions from within are rare.

    Overall, a good experience.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsDuring my time here, I have had the opportunity to grow professionally, and work with many smart, qualified, friendly, and all around good people. My peers, supervisors, and subordinates all bring a lot to the table in a great team environment.

    There are, regularly, opportunities to learn more about the business, operations, finance, or other facets of executing on the corporation's strategic objectives, if you seek them out.

    ConsOn the flip side, compensation is extremely sub-par for the area. This is a huge pain point personally, and I perceive it as a constant threat to my ability to retain employees. Look at almost any salary survey for the area, subtract upwards of 40%, and you'll be in the ball park of what Pall will offer you.

    Pall has some great technology, but doesn't utilize it well. A common source of frustration is that many processes are still paper based, when the technology exists or is already in place to automate the task or perform it in an electronic format. I don't know about you, but I think having to get paper forms signed, reviewed, or approved is so 1980s.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGenerally, some of the communication initiatives that have been undertaken make senior management seem more approachable and open to discussing the business. That's good, and should continue.

    With the noted employee concerns about compensation in the NY area, and your quite understandable focus on delivering shareholder value, you should probably consider relocating HQ to a more cost effective location. There is certainly somewhere that you could procure equivalent facilities, talented employees, and pay a lower overall tax and compensation burden while at the same time satisfying everyone's needs. Just a thought.

    Transition to a sale

    Market Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsBright people, global exposure, technically competent. The broad based markets they're involved with give you a window into many industrial areas.

    ConsThe new mgt would seem to be prepping the business for a sale. Selling off divisions and shifting operation. After Millipore was sold to German Merck, it can't be too long before Pall's sold too.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the salaries more competitive. Long Island's expensive.

    Good pay, challenging work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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

    Since they were doing several implemenations it was very good, fast moving, and challgening.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Port Washington, NY

    ProsLots of traveling to diffrent parts of the world which may not be seem if it was not for Pall.

    ConsLong hours when working on a project or implementation. conference calls outside of your time zone, and must be at work at the normal time even when the call is at 3am.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore training on a yearly basis. This will allow the employee to grow and be more resourcefull for themselves and the company.
