Former Employee (Former Employee) – Ft. Myers – April 4, 2014
We knew when the last management team came in from Illinois, they were the closers of our building. Lack of personal skills to speak to employees in passing. Pure ability to look you in the face and bold face lie to you. The overall would have been great IF only managers who had no clue about the product didn't try to force you to ship bad product to meet quota's.
they couldn't decide where they wanted you to work at so they basically made someone or some people as a floater and learning all the areas but not getting the rate of pay they should be getting and they said that's what the cell applies about the working all different areas but when I wanted to transfer different cells the management wouldn't put in for me he actually put in for himself and somebody else and left me in a most dangerous environment which was working with the chemicals with acid and peroxide 100%
was 12 hours daily five days a week sometimes 6 days plus pm`s. I had to set up and fixed the production equipment.they have a lot of different equipment to deal with but it was real challenge to work with them
Manager plays favorites has no idea what is going on on the production floor. I worked hard never called in or was late was let go for no reason at all other than the fact the manager has no clue what is going on. I talked to other long time employees there they all say he is the problem. This is the reason the place always has job openings.
Customer Service Rep/Account Manager (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – September 20, 2017
Poor management. VP would undermine the manager. The direct manager know absolutely nothing about the computer language and always needed assistance from his employees. The department was staffed at 12 when the manager arrived. There is only 3 remaining employees now. The majority of the employees who left, had less than a year of service due to the unprofessional style of management that included the VP.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Fajardo, PR – August 3, 2017
Follow the instructions of assembling detailed, processes and products. Fulfill with the politics and guidelines by the department of system quality. Complete all the relative functions to the problems. It report regulatory with the quality processes, teams and materials of the production.
Gained new skills and knowledge after working for a year. Friendly employees (for the most part). Good management. Well-paid, considering my position. Work may become monotonous after a while, but there was a different task each day, so not too bad.
Pall Corporation will take everything you have to give and leave you with nothing to show for it.
Research Scientist (Former Employee) – Pensacola, FL – July 9, 2017
Pall Corporation has well below average compensation despite the experience, education, and performance of the employee. I spent 9 years as a full time employee with the company and my final pay was only a few dollars more than the pay temporary employees receive, despite having multiple degrees, vast experience, and a proven track record. There was near universal consensus among other employees that the compensation was sub par as well.
Pall Corporation does not promote qualified employees in a timely fashion, if at all. On average, an employee had to work for at least a decade performing at two or three levels above their job description's outline to be considered for promotion. Even when promotion occurred, it was only ever one or two people every two years within a department out of about one hundred employees. Further, some managers simply did not promote their employees. One had to work for a particular manager to hope for a chance of advancement.
Despite employees not receiving recognition in the forms of compensation or advancement, Pall was all too happy over use employees like tools, replacing them when they finally broke from wear and tear, often with temps and interns. In the decade I spent with the company, the culture fetishized lean efficiency more with each passing year. By the end of my stay, teams would be a quarter of the size they once were in years past and project timelines had collapsed from three year cycles to developing and releasing new products in as little as three months. Chronic burnout and poor morale plagued my department.
To make mattersmore... worse, our new parent op-co, Danaher, has made a regular habit of semi-annual company wide layoffs. Despite trimming all but the most efficient and productive employees in previous cycles, layoffs would continue anytime financial goals were not met, even if the company was extremely profitable that year. In the end, it seemed that a lottery system was used to pick people to lay-off. This caused further losses in morale as key individuals on a projects would simply disappear one afternoon without any period to transfer their workloads to the thin ranks of the remaining team members and demoralized the remaining employees as not even high productivity could save them from being laid off.less
Diverse range of projects, interdisciplinary teams
Low pay, few promotions, poor moral, widespread burnout, frequent layoffs
IT Assistant (Former Employee) – Fajardo, PR – June 7, 2017
The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with the rest of the employees. Everybody is willing to help one an other. This is fundamental in the work place because it would make it an friendly work space for everyone.
