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

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.

it is an ok place to work, great benefits but sometimes the overtime is a little too much. supervisors play favorites. short breaks and lunches. some departments have employees who have reached the max pay and those employees dont work likethey should and leave everything up to other shifts.
