    I worked at Pall full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best reasons to work for this company are:
    1. Decent paid time off (personal days, holidays, shut down periods, etc.)
    2. Any other job you take AFTER this one ought to seem like a breezy paradise by comparison.
    3. The guy or girl in the cube or workstation next to you is probably cool.

    Cons

    The top challenges faced while working here are:

    1. Management: Management seems to think employees are stupid. They spend so much time and money recruiting and interviewing, only to treat employees like incompetent morons who have to be told what to do and how to do it. Management seems terrified of risk, so they tend to micromanage workers, which slaughters efficiency and innovation. Management asks you to do tasks that they wouldn't bother to do themselves. One particular high-level manager has the supremely annoying habit of coming around at the end of tasks or projects and criticizing them, demanding they be reworked, often for minor cosmetic things. Reworks never made the work BETTER. They just added time to do things that ultimately, no one cared about anyway.

    Management DOES NOT care about your experience. If you think you're going to start out at position X here and work your way up to management in ten or fifteen years, you are so, SO wrong. Managers are brought in from outside, which should tell you a lot right there. If your goal is to be an executive at Pall, DON'T WORK THERE! You'll ruin your chances.

    2. Workload: People are doing the work of three or four, probably because others are leaving in droves. Your priorities will change by the hour. Try managing your own time effectively when a manager whips you back and forth between whatever he feels your top three priorities should be! Your manager will be displeased that you didn't get a majority of your projects done each year, and the constant fire-fighting and insane workload will not be a valid excuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves!

    Pros

    Good company benefits along with competitive compensation

    Cons

    There was a disconnect with executive management and middle management and projects were often micro-managed. Went all in with the Six-Sigma paradigm to much dismay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those on the front lines and realize Six Sigma is not an excuse for lack of mentoring

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make the salaries more competitive. Long Island's expensive.

    I worked at Pall full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, adequate benefits. Corporate Compliance and Ethics are taken seriously, albeit to an extreme that makes management hesitant to take calculated risk

    Cons

    A real blame culture. Cut throat politics Lots of turnover in leadership. No strategy that is clear to the employees. Values are written but not demonstrated. Very little leadership development, ergo not the best people leaders. People have no voice, so they use the Ethics Hotline to make complaints about their issues and get attention. Corporate makes most of the decisions. Creates a fox hole mentality at the local level, where no one wants to make decisions or rock the boat. Top leadership (especially Larry Kingsley) is not visible to employees and there is no strong communication strategy to help the employees understand the business strategy and what they do to contribute to the success of the Company. No support or clear direction from leadership. No coaching, just fingerpointing. Worst company I every worked for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sorry, but I do not believe this Company, under it's current leadership, would listen or take heed to any advice. There has been lots of work done to make the Company more profitable in the short term, but it needs to invest in it's people, starting with better people leaders, to really take the Company to the next level.
