Highly unprofessional setup at Pall India

Sales Engineer (Current Employee)
Mumbai

I have been working at Pall full-time for more than a year

ProsFew great people to work with.

ConsGood 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 Senior ManagementNo advice to the management in India. You have not changed anything in so many years; you cannot change anything.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good pay, challenging work environment

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Pall full-time

ProsThere are a lot of great people to work with, lots of flexibility to work from home when needed, people work really hard

ConsWorkload is overwhelming to almost impossible, lack of appropriate resources or tools, lack of training or on-boarding for new hires. Need to figure things out on your own. Top heavy organization.

Not a place for career development

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Pall full-time

ProsVarious products and many smart and technical people working around. Stock purchase plan is OK. Winter shutdown is a good time for Christmas season.

ConsToo many directors/VPs/SVPs, way more than any big companies I worked. Old management team from Dr. Pall's time is extincting, many of current middle/high level managers are excellent masters of office politics learned from their previous employers, however have limited knowledge about techniques that Pall need. There are lots of turnarounds in administrative and technical departments in these years; people in Pall now gets used to hear the leave of respectable senior employee every few weeks; and some senior employees were just laid off after a short project discussion or argument at a meeting if it did not make upper level managers happy, and left a large team/project unattended. The working environment becomes somewhat hostile; no smooth communication and friendly assist can be easily found around, people have their territory. Complains can be often heard from new hires, many new employees work only for living, no mood for career development, and they keep seeking other opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a stable environment, do not set up too many managers, reduce the politics and build a friendly and respecting environment.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
