    Pros

    Pall Corporation has huge growth potential due to its excellent product range.People are great.

    Cons

    The management will remove you any time irrespective off your great performance, just because your senior do not like you. I had seen all that during my tenure with Pall India.

    Pros

    Few great people to work with.

    Cons

    Good experience if your next career plan is to sell mobile phone SIM cards.

    Management, especially in India, work without any integrity. Sales incentive plan (SIP) is set based on unreasonable targets.

    Skills, recognition, motivation, understanding of goals, and the ability to measure progress etc. are alien to the managers. All sales and performance credit goes to your manager.

    There is a high level of dissatisfaction among the sales managers in India regarding their remuneration packages. So, you can imagine how difficult it would be to haggle over annual salary increment when the frustration is high among the managers themselves.

    Even the managers and business unit heads based overseas managing the sales and business developments in India are mean and indulge in politics at the expense of their colleagues in India.

    Only a few sales / marketing managers - regional and global - who can play organizational politics are still sticking around with the company. They will continue to be with the company because they cannot not find a job else where.

    Don’t get into this trap. You will all regret the time you wasted at Pall India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to the management in India. You have not changed anything in so many years; you cannot change anything.

    Pros

    Pretty good salary. Nice vacation package. Loved the people I worked with.

    Cons

    Outside sales people treated poorly. Expectations constantly were changing and so it was hard to meet obligations sometimes. Lots of good-ol-boy mentality. Worked here before Eric Krasnoff left, so can't speak of the atmosphere today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to respect employees more.

    Pros

    Fantastic amount of internal talent.

    Very broad market coverage that somewhat isolates Pall from the up and down cycles you see with companies that only sell into one or two markets.

    Good cash reserves that allow them to aggressively develop solutions to address portfolio gaps.

    Cons

    Huge amount of confusion in the engineering community caused by Pall"s Sage Gate Process, which is THE MOST complicated one I have ever seen.

    Pall's Gate process doesn't work for novel products that have significant technical challenges that need to be solved before they would be commercially viable.

    Zenophobic mentality makes it impossible to gather realistic and meaningful customer feedback early in the product development process....................historically pall spends years developing a product before it is ever shown to anyone outside the company. Pall management recognizes that this needs to be improved, but they have not implemented disclosure strategies the would allow allow marketing or engineering to gather reliable customer feedback early in the development process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pall's ultimate mission is to offer solutions that allow our customers separate, purify or concentrate product. Our endgame is not to fill in all the boxes on the myriad of checklists that are in the stage gate process.

    Simplify the Stage gate Development process and publish exemplary examples that will be used as guides for future gate submissions.

    Hire project managers whose sole purpose is to move projects through the gate process.

    Pros

    Good training and salary / benefits. The work environment is clean and safe. Unless you have a college education you will only go so far and that is just fine.

    Cons

    No regard for a persons sleep habits or personal time. You are considered another piece of equipment to be used when necessary and to be let go of whenever they need to hire another vice president. This unfortunately is a sign of the times. Corporate greed at its very best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You may all sleep better at night if you would realize your employees deserve some respect as human beings. Some of you may feel this is just the way a business is run properly and others are just trying to climb the ladder stepping on other peoples fingers as you go. Karma will most likely be the winner in the end.

    Pros

    Work with a lot of decent people, many of whom are very nice and smart.

    Cons

    Absolutely zero company culture or regard for employees. Constant layoffs (especially for longer term employees), NO loyalty - if you have been a loyal employee for 20 years and make a decent salary you will be replaced without a second thought. Elimination of positions with no plan on how to replace people's output. HUGE pay disparity between management and regular employees - for ex, the CEO made $35 million in ONE year and then reduces bonuses, raises and cuts staff because we spend too much on salary! Pay is VERY low for non-senior mgmt. Dead end career with no chance if moving up within the company; all managers are brought in externally rather than promoted from within. With exception of the CFO, who is a decent guy, the senior mgmt team is pompous, heartless, and overpaid. Just remember, at Pall you are not a person, but an unfortunate blight on the income statement (if I had a penny for every time management mentioned SG&A I would double my salary, which is not saying much but hey...).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue Larry. Stop hiring cronies and giving the top guys huge pay while screwing everyone else. A CEO should inspire and lead, rather than locking yourself in the C Suite, giving yourself nice new titles, and remaining oblivious that you are the most disliked person in the entire organization. The 20% approval rating here is NOT an aberration. The stock price has gone up a lot, but it doesn't take a Harvard MBA to figure out that by laying everyone off and making others work 70 HR weeks will reduce costs, especially in a tough economic environment where its tough to find other jobs. How about investing in the company to make a long term sustainable impact rather than being so short sighted and focusing your decisions on how to maximize the value of your stock options?
