    Fortune 500 Company, good pay and benefits, I really like my Manager, great coworkers, a lot of internal movement, easy to move up in the Company.

    Pros

    Safety and customer service are number one with Airgas. Airgas has many career options in numerous divisions. There is room for advancement and Airgas offer training for all employees.

    Cons

    No Cons for people who want to put safety and customer service first. Airgas is a large company and was the large number employees. There will always be a few bad apples that it takes time to identify and weed out.

    Advice to Management

    Training events with employees from different divisions attending to promote unity.

    * Diversified Products & Suite of Services to offer
    * Strong additions to the Airgas Leadership team to keep the company moving in the right direction

    Pros

    Extremely trusting environment where career development thrives. A lot of Airgas employees have been with the company 10,15,20+ years which shows great examples of the strength of the business plan, the industry, and the dedication of the employees to the culture.

    Awesome place to grow your skills.

    Cons

    Decentralization can create difficulties as the mergers and acquisition-based structure provides for 1100+ locations however this is part of the reward in the challenge to continue to innovate and organize.

    Pros

    Willing to invest in the development of their employees to ensure their success within the company, which is very unique. The company also has a vast array of products and services they provide to their customer base which is huge. Recession proof!!!!

    Cons

    As with any large organization things move slowly, but the important thing is that they are always striving to change for the better

    Advice to Management

    Keep on, doing a great job and moving the company in the right direction.

    Great place to work. Great people to work with that care about the job and their families.

    Create an easier budget process to allow the budget to flow through out the year prior to the start of the FY

    Pros

    - Flextime (for MOST departments; obviously some Job Requirements for certain positions won't allow) - it actually motivates me to get in earlier, so I can get out earlier and be more productive
    - Location
    - Office culture and co-workers; I am a new grad in my first full-time role. Due to frequent acquistions, Airgas company culture evolves frequently as well. Long story short, we're all new and learn together. I don't feel intimidated, just welcomed
    - Employee Benefits; great vacation time, salary and tuition reimbursement... this is ideal for a young professional

    Cons

    - This is a large company with a corporate feel (not an issue for me, but I can see this won't be appealing for everyone)
    - With large companies, there is a lot of learning that goes with it. However, the Business Support Centers (BSCs) were recently put into place to streamline policies and general work flow
    - Some old school mentalities still exist in upper management, though I do see this changing with newly hired managers in multiple locations

    Advice to Management

    I would actually advise those looking to join this company; when using research tools such as Glassdoor be mindful that with a large company (15,000+) our team includes all different professionals in the gas industry. A truck driver's opinion of his time with Airgas will vary from those in Real Estate pockets. Basically, use good judgement and do your research!

    As for management, be mindful of the idea of changing times... I think we are seeing more favorability to a more liberal environment, but if you want to attract young talent, flexibility is attractive!
