    I worked at Pall (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the team I worked with at Pall. Local management was in tune and was always open to ideas to make things better.

    Cons

    Our plant was on the cutting edge of developing some of the companies top new products but because there was no room to build on, they shut the plant down. The severence package was pretty weak.

    I worked at Pall full-time

    Pros

    - Stable employment
    - Good benefits
    - Location (Pasco/Hernando Co.)

    Cons

    - No room for promotion, they rather hire from outside.
    - A lot of Micro-management. Management treat employees and supervisors like children.
    - HR doesn't exist. The whole purpose of HR is to do Corporate's dirty work. If you need help they tell you to call a number or go to a website.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking care of your employees and they will take care of you in return. Don't worry so much about the share holders, when your employees are happy and start giving you 110%, then share holders will get 110%.

    I worked at Pall full-time

    Pros

    Under Danaher there is a lot to learn from the Danaher Business System

    Cons

    Low morale since the acquisition by Danaher. Many great people have left because of poor life / work balance.

    I have been working at Pall full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are helpful, friendly and hard-working. Leftover Pall family type atmosphere. Standard manufacturing / industrial environment with emphasis on customer service, OTD and Danaher Business System (DBS)

    Cons

    Since Danaher there is no work/life balance, company first - your life second. Common theme is get the work done and if you cannot keep pace "the parking lot is out there" or "that is what OT is for". Almost a cult type atmosphere around DBS and related events. Unreasonable and sometimes impossible demands create a stressful environment. Favoritism and politics common. If 10 years or more of service, you feel targeted for removal by management.

    Advice to Management

    Try a simple thing: be nice to people. Delivery of a message without being arrogant, threatening or condescending can go a long way in getting employee buy-in to what you want to implement.

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

    Pros

    I was on a very good team of smart people, many of them dedicated their entire careers to this company, and it is a very large company that isn't going anywhere any time soon. Very dedicated to the community and to the environment. Tip Top standards in safety, training, EPA, even developing a relationship with the local municipalities.

    Cons

    They cannot seem to keep people at the top, which means they have trouble keeping people at all levels. Every new leader has a new vision, and people's careers are always played as pawns in an effort to always re-group. I've been through 5 'hiring and firing' seasons where good people were laid off for no other reason than "they weren't in the plan." It was never about downsizing, this is a company that has hired consistently, even during layoffs (Donut Day = Welcome the new hire).

    I've seen Legacy (20+ year) Employees get canned just because a few people had to be pruned from the tree. I've seen people get laid off with <1 year from retirement. A former coworker was about to move (PACKED AND READY TO GO) to be closer to his grandchildren, secured a new job. Pall BEGGED him to stay and offered a promotion. My coworker cancelled his plans, cancelled his new job, cancelled the moving company, had to tell his family he was staying.......Then Pall let him go, 2 months later. No longer needed.

    They are a company with every indication of a long Career, but they can't keep their promises. Even Recruiters have nothing good to say.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your life force. For a company that seemingly has nothing to worry about, there seems to be a lot of management problems that cost jobs and careers.

    Pros

    The health insurance as it's provided on day "one" of employment and doesn't require a 3 month probationary period. There are also a lot of tools and electronic resources provided that help finding other coworkers fairly quick and easy.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of issues at Pall since the Danaher merger which went official around 10/2016. There have been a significant amount of layoffs with 1) compliance; 2) tax; 3) legal; 4) HR being hit; a lot of research positions were hit; half of the Port Washington office is vacant with more people leaving every week. CEO is upset that employees are leaving with a churn over 10% but Danaher doesn't want to give good raises or job security to retain key employees while most jobs are outsourced. Also, main Port Washington facility is for sale with target of Q4 2016. Managers are overcompensated and are keen on writing up employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking about kaizen/restructuring and treat employees like people other than a number; provide higher raises for those employees that constantly perform, and outperform existing expectations. Think more about creating a happy, meaningful, and fulfilling environment for your employees.
