    Pros

    International company with many opportunities to learn new technologies in many different locations.

    Cons

    Big company so you can get lose in the shuffle and the company is always looking to "trim the fat."

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire only the best.

    Pros

    This company does not give lip service when it comes to safety. There is an exceptional amount of information to take in over the first few months but there are always people who genuinely want to help you find the answers to succeed. The pay is good not great. The work can be challenging especially if your plant is having issues that require major overhaul work. I have often heard in previous jobs "this job would be great if they would quit micromanaging and let us do what needs to be done". That is what happens at Praxair. You are given the tools needed to succeed without supervision hovering over you as you work.

    Cons

    I may just have exceptional management but they are great. The biggest con for me is solitude from backup. Being the only one on call for vast areas can be challenging. But if you do your job and are proactive about maintenance this job is great. If there are issues that can not be fixed immediately plan on spending a lot of time at work.

    Advice to Management

    Expand training opportunities with more web based LMS. Possibly video conference training.


  3. Great Benefits. Good work environment.

    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 Management

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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