    Former Employee - Production Engineer in Wichita, KS

    I worked at Air Products as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most employees are very friendly and willing to help. The compensation is very good, even as an intern. In addition, they ask what you want to do within the company and will do anything they can to help you become successful.

    Cons

    It may not be a bad thing given that I haven't been out into the workforce yet, but you cannot take vacation until you've been working there for 6 months. Also, the work-life balance can be hectic if you're working in a plant as it can be more demanding.

    I have been working at Air Products as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone seems to be very nice no matter what department. There is alot of room to move around the company. You can easily spend your entire career here.

    Cons

    I would say that the only con is that there is a lot of traveling for some jobs if you don't like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Air Products

    Pros

    The best part is not being stuck in one job for your whole career. Opportunities exist for employees to change jobs within the company.
    Change is a way of life at Air Products.

    Cons

    The company is very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay connected to middle management so the environment remains aligned throughout the organization.

    Pros

    Great culture surrounding work life balance and diversity and inclusiveness. Even at the most senior level managers are accessible and have an open door policy. MBA rotational program affords the opportunity to network and gain experiences across departments, functions and business areas.

    Cons

    Matriculation process is slow. Culture is based upon years in role as opposed to skill set and potential. Company is very conservative and steeped in traditional thoughts and values. This presents challenges in the ever changing business and social environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Opportunities need to be created with adequate compensation in order to attract AND maintain top talent.

    Former Employee - Lead Machinery Engineer in Allentown, PA

    I worked at Air Products full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lehigh Valley is losing its "Pennsyltucky" feel and has developed in to an OK place to live in the NE. APCI is great place to get early experience and move on.

    Cons

    APCI businesses are highly competitive and relatively low dollar, causing downward pressure on wages and benefits. There is a select "good old boy" network alive and well for those who do get the big jobs and perks. Most of the population attended a handful of PA schools, so it has a distinct fraternity feeling in the management ranks. Fortunately, it has been broken up by hiring Seifi Ghasemi, an outsider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Luck with Seifi......bwhahahaha
