I worked at Pall full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of good people working there. Some very good resources available. Some of the technology is very good with good management running it. A good place for many people to start

Cons

Communication between upper management and the workforce could be much better. All too often unclear goals were set and then middle managers would unjustly lash out at subordinates. At times things were chaotic. One single Documentation system was being phased in, which is a critical thing, however it could be very frustrating to get even simple things done. Many workers had problems with the general disorganization of the place.

Advice to Management

Give middle management more latitude in executing goals. Hold them accountable, but don't make them so afraid to fail that they never really accomplish much.

    I have been working at Pall full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great opportunities for people focused on results to shine. The company is moving towards a merit based system. The management team has set a solid vision for the future.

    Cons

    Company is going through some major change. Like any company going through change there are always challenges. Some of the decisions are unpopular. Morale has taken a bit of a hit and there's been some staffing changes at the executive level.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the vision that has been set and stay consistent to it.

    "A promising start met the ugly reality of de-motivation."

    Pros

    The products produced are arguably THE best on the planet. Pall is a company name recognized globally. Most of the personnel are helpful, competent and enjoyable to work with. Time off is generous compared with other company offerings, and the stock options are a nice benefit.

    Cons

    Key management is often inconsistent in verbal direction. Micromanagement is unrelenting. No matter what you do, it's wrong or not good enough. Every employee has at least five different jobs and chooses priority work based on whatever the emergency-of-the-day is, or whatever is due that day. The yearly incentive plan seems designed to be unattainable and this, along with the shocking disrespect and unprofessionalism shown to subordinates by high-level personnel who really should know better, has demotivated a large percentage of the staff. A lot of people are just toughing it out until another job opportunity presents itself. The worst part: Corporate management has never thought to ask employees for feedback about local management, and employees assume no one cares that they're de-motivated so long as the quarterly numbers are good.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees to rate their supervisors and managers. Give them a means to express their ideas and opinions to someone who cares.
