A very lean operation. Althought the benefits are good, the work load will kill you.

Pros

Decent benefits. Bagels and blue jeans on casual Fridays. The company also provides Starbucks coffee for employees every work day. The perfect work environment for those who enjoy working extended hours - and on weekends.

Cons

The work force is very lean - therefore ability to actually use earned vacation is rarely feasible. Good luck being able to travel on your vaction... "Earned vacation" is more apt to become "earned work from home" day. There is an expectation that employees work long hours and weekends. What??? Cancer got you down?.. We'll make today "bring your chemo drip to work day"... nobody minds if your lips are blue from treatment. You'll be a trend setter and inspiration for others. The staff who have seen the local Ann Arbor site dwindle to a fraction of what Pall/Gelman once was, are great to work with. They however have witnessed fellow colleagues eliminated from the operation - often with little notice or questionable justification. Therefore those who are left, despite being pleasant - harbor anger and bitterness. Everyone believes their needs are more urgent than everyone elses. Not a good place to work if you have loved ones or interests outside of work.

Advice to Management

Based on the stress and overwhelming work load required, the leadership at Pall exhibits questionable respect for employee well being. The work environment is not pleasant or gratifying. I therefore, would not recommend Pall as employer to others.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere, great people, interesting work, great benefits. I'm really encouraged by what I've seen from the new sr. management team and I think the company has great potential moving forward - it's an exciting time to work for Pall.

    Cons

    Compensation is middle of the road. Staffing is extremely lean these days, and the feeling in the office is that the cuts that took place at the bottom of the recession might have been too close to the bone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for better business information systems. Implement a fully staffed PMO for R&D with top-down support. Implement a global LIMS system for SLS.

    Pros

    If you are the kind of person that likes to work hard for very little pay or respect Pall is the place to work. You do get a lot of holidays off.

    Cons

    Pall is the kind of place that will take advantage of a good worker. Additionally they are unwilling to negotiate salaries at the time of an offer letter. Leadership is very disorganized with no real structure or vision.

    Advice to Management

    It is time to evaluate all of the salaries of your employees to make sure that they are level across all fields. When new employees are brought in with significantly higher salaries than existing employees it is a slap in the face.
