    Learn, grow and get new opportunities

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prossolid company with consistent business results, good relationship within colleagues, learning environment, opportunity for career growth, international, good ethical values applied in real world.

    Consnot for self made individuals that are entrepreneurs, team work spirit instead. Decisions are made on a consensus mode, not just do it by yourself what you think is the right thing to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should advertise more the company brand as it is not know in Americas as it is in Europe.

    Amazing place to work and grow professionally

    Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsCompany is growing organically and through acquisitions. You can move across the organization into different roles that interest you.

    ConsPolitics and nepotism still run rampant. Weak front line managers who are hired from outside the company and who have embraced the culture of ingenuity and growth at Air Liquide.

    Advice to Senior Managementcultivate the team you have working for you.

    WOW! What company

    Field Service Tech (Current Employee) Calcutta (India)

    ProsNothing negative to say. Amazing people, Outstanding training. SAFE working conditions and good equipment. A Career, not a job. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this. Outstanding benefits. Long work days, but you'll see things you only dreamed about.

    ConsPossibly too much travel, but, it is needed for training. So far, I would not change a thing about this company. I'm new, but I worked at a previous job for 21 years. This is one of those companies your parents hoped you could work for. This company is more along the lines of a railroad job vs Wal Mart.....no matter the position. Take an entry level job sweeping floors, if you can.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo, I'm listening.
