    Great company to learn and get trained in the industry. Exposed to a lot early in your career. Good starting point for a long career.

    Company is going through a significant leadership change, but will hopefully emerge from it as a better company. Leadership is currently lacking.

    Current Employee - Manager  in  Trexlertown, PA
    Current Employee - Manager in Trexlertown, PA

    I have been working at Air Products full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Company was founded on an innovative concept: of looking at and delivering a simple product in a unique way. There has been a "founders pride" evident there for many years. Company has a strong global presence - works hard to maintain a one-company view while respecting regional and local norms.

    Cons

    Headquarters is a bit too "US Centric" and even "Allentown, PA-centric". Too many managers competing instead of collaborating. A culture that encourages doing it right the first time versus risk taking impedes innovation. Need to find a balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave room for people to make mistakes and not be penalized. Encourage listening skills - especially to the rank and file and to newer employees who may have different thoughts. Work on diversity of THOUGHT and acceptance of voices different from the "good ol' boy" group (especially with regard to female employees).

    Pros

    Very intelligent coworkers; great career development programs, encourage employees to try different positions and move frequently; good compensation and benefits

    Cons

    Very "old boys club" type company culture; there is high turnover in the younger employees (under 35 years old), often due to this stodgy, conservative culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some younger employees to stick around
