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

    Pros

    Praxair cannot afford to hire bright, innovative engineers from top notch schools and ivy league schools. Not even the good state schools. It can afford to hire engineers from community colleges and local universities who are available at 30% below market salaries. However, you always need employers who will employ B and C grade students. Where will they go otherwise? Praxair is a great company for such people and a ray of hope. Some of these people outshine and become successful leaders. However, company performance overall is governed by the quality and talent of people they hire. That's why overall its a mediocre company for mediocre people.

    Cons

    Not very dynamic, Has very old technology in every field - email system is Lotus Notes - very old, No Web conferencing tools, Has plethora of old 1980 software for business functions, too slow to adapt to technology. Below market salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage entrepreneurship among employees. Be dashing, promote risk taking. Get rid of senior manager with lame duck mentality, promote young aggressive employee friendly people, Pay above market salaries, hire top notch talent, keep them challenged and raise the bar for what they can deliver
