    I have been working at Praxair (more than an year)

    Pros

    They offer many opportunities for growth and professional development.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is sometimes a challenge. Competitive salaries but under average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professional growth and salary increase go hand on hand. Salary increase is way to low compared with cost of life.

    Pros

    You really get to learn the process because you have a whole plant not just a unit. Process isn't dangerous for the most part. Pay is comparable to industry.

    Cons

    Slow to move, but what company isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have less people in charge and bring in a bigger work force.

    I have been working at Praxair as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My favorite parts of Praxair were the fantastic people and great mentorship. If you have the drive to advance quickly, they will accommodate you and give you tougher challenges and visibility

    Cons

    Not particularly dynamic or cutting edge. Industrial gases as an industry doesn't have much more it can do beyond seeking better efficiencies.

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Competent people and good salaries

    Cons

    Some works, if you like challegens might get you bored, if you are an intern.
    That must not occur when you have a regular job, though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify activities so people get involved and stimulated all the time.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Danbury, CT

    I have been working at Praxair full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a lot of extra headcount so you are pulled into projects that you might not get exposed to in other companies. You are pulled out of your comfort zone and can really grow your skills.

    Cons

    Everyone is expected to work very hard and put in long hours. Money is not thrown around lightly so resources can be limited sometimes. Salary is pretty good and benefits are average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management and enviornment in Corporate HQ is very conservative and old-fashioned. Comany needs to become more employee-friendly and flexible if they are going to keep up with the changing dynamics of the workplace.
