    I worked at Praxair as an intern

    Pros

    Praxair is a consistently successful company with a major focus on safety. The culture is fast-paced and relatively traditional. The people are generally friendly, willing to help, and good at their jobs. The intern program is great and allows the interns to do hands-on projects and interact with people at various levels of the company. As an intern, you also interact with other interns on a group project as well as social events.

    Cons

    Some of the processes are inefficient and cumbersome, but that is common in many large regulated companies. Another con is that headquarters are in Danbury, CT and a major office is in Tonawanda, NY, so if you don't want to move there your opportunities will probably be limited.
