    I have been working at Praxair

    Pros

    Mediocre benefits package, vacation days are decent but even better if you're grandfathered in from a previous buyout. The only way one can see this company in a positive light is if you've started elsewhere and simply had no choice with a transfer.

    Cons

    Incompetence and politics clearly trump true work ethic and social responsibility within the workplace. Programs are in place promoting certain things, but it's merely a facade as it's hard to get excited about anything. This is corporate at its' worst, without regard for employees or the effect the company has on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where are the days when families still owned corporations? Are they really that far gone? Corporate means one thing these days, what the shareholder wants and expects and that is profit at any cost, regardless of the livelihoods at stake. Company officers work towards that goal alone, it's no lie.

    Pros

    Experience on a resume.
    The longer you keep believing the fluff they feed you the longer you will stay.

    Cons

    Well underpaid.
    Nepotism & politics.
    Poor management.
    Greedy.
    Uncaring for their employees.
    If you feed in to the fluff this company tells you it will ruin your life in the long run & if u have a family theirs too. If you are the type of person that does not expect much then this is the job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest & follow through with promises. Take better care of your employees & give them a REAL paycheck.

    Pros

    nice co-workers; easy work; can not think of any other reason why anyone should work there; close to home; that's about it

    Cons

    management is horrible; benefits are mediocre; the company as a whole needs to catch up to the twentieth century, forget about the twenty-first century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    motivate your employees; expand your benefits to balance work/home; organize your staff to work more efficiently; appreciate your employees; a happy place is a more productive place
