    I have been working at Linde North America full-time

    Pros

    The retirement benefits are good and there is a good brain trust of long term employees. Otherwise there are not many pros to speak of.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is virtually nonexistent leading to a fatigued workforce. As a result, morale is extremely low and there is a pent up wave of turnover just waiting to happen. The level of bureaucracy is unbelievable with more focus on process rather than result leading to an apparently ever reducing level of productivity and increased frustration among employees. The company's over-arching German culture is equally oppressive and demotivating. Our "German colleagues" are never wrong and everything must fit into its box, even if it doesn't, even then it still should. The workforce in a North America is aging. Retention among younger employees is low due to Linde's lack of flexibility (flextime, telecommuting, etc.), career development, and growth opportunities. Probably the most alarming fact to me is that across the company, regardless of department, it is surprising how readily people will openly talk about their dissatisfaction with the job - even to people they barely know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up, the region is rapidly unraveling before your eyes. Employees have been pushed to the limit in the name of "productivity" and things are finally coming to a head. Focus on improving work/life balance and employee morale before you lose the group of people you have. Additionally, keep employees in the loop more with structural changes. As North and South America merge into one region there is a great deal of apprehension among employees related to job security and work scope. The scope of jobs in North America seem to be slowly including responsibilities in South America as well with little to no warning and no additional compensation for the increased workload. Employees are simply expected to "deal with it". The shows a gross lack of respect for your employees and is absolutely unacceptable.
