    Pros

    Air Products cares about its employees and provides many opportunities for growth and advancement. You can greatly influence your career path, and they are flexible to accommodate any special needs you may have. Very supportive co-workers make for an enjoyable work environment.

    Cons

    Air Products pay is not as competitive as some other companies, but they still expect you to be available as much as other companies.

    I worked at Air Products

    Pros

    The people are fantastic. They are talented and fun individuals. The benefits and compensation was average, nothing to get excited about. The work was initially challenging. I was able to work a flexible schedule since I often communicated with other sites around the world, and could work from home a few days a week. That was better than any other the tangible benefits.

    Cons

    As a 20 year total veteran, I have seen the company go from a place I was proud to work for - one with integrity and opportunity - to one with poor management and leadership and few opportuinties. Frankly, it made me very sad because I am grateful for many good years there. Much of the leadership was very old school and it was very hard to get new innovative ideas heard. They became very behind the times. In 2014 the CEO was ousted - uh "retired" - and a new CEO was elected (Seifi Ghasemi). He made immediate changes and was restructuring the entire organization when my entire department was eliminated. Despite this I agree that the company needs to make drastic changes to survive, even though it had a negative affect on my employment. He has some good ideas to revitalize the company, but the expense is quite a number of employees. It has left those who remain overworked, without the proper knowledge since there was little transfer, and stressed. I do hope the company comes out on the other side a stronger, happier place to be. For now, I would avoid employment until they are more stable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. They know of what they speak. Allow them some creativity in thought and action, and have some yourselves.

    Pros

    Still has a decent safety consciousness - maybe not as strong as under the old chem group, but still solid. here s a lot to be said about going home in the same condition you arrived.

    Cons

    I joined the chemicals group of Air Products many years ago. Ten years ago, the chem group pretty much disappeared after a management shakeup and everything had to be done the gases way. Then Air Products walked away from a profitable PUI business. Now its all about improving the bottom line by cutting away the positions Not the same company I joined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Quit cutting too deep. It is tough to recover when you've cleared the bench.

    Large global company. Work/life balance can be good depending on who your manager is.

    Good benefits, not competitive with salary. Hard to advance if you don't have a engineering degree.
