    I have been working at Airgas full-time

    Pros

    Airgas, now more than ever, is looking into all aspects of their current business and now taking the time to invest in gaining a greater understanding of their work force and how to ensure we continue to get the right people on the bus to drive continued success. The people I have the pleasure of working with are all hard-working, dedicated, and engaged in their jobs day in and day out and are proud to call Airgas home.

    Cons

    Not much to note here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing and believing in the future workforce of the company.

    I have been working at Airgas full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Flextime (for MOST departments; obviously some Job Requirements for certain positions won't allow) - it actually motivates me to get in earlier, so I can get out earlier and be more productive
    - Location
    - Office culture and co-workers; I am a new grad in my first full-time role. Due to frequent acquistions, Airgas company culture evolves frequently as well. Long story short, we're all new and learn together. I don't feel intimidated, just welcomed
    - Employee Benefits; great vacation time, salary and tuition reimbursement... this is ideal for a young professional

    Cons

    - This is a large company with a corporate feel (not an issue for me, but I can see this won't be appealing for everyone)
    - With large companies, there is a lot of learning that goes with it. However, the Business Support Centers (BSCs) were recently put into place to streamline policies and general work flow
    - Some old school mentalities still exist in upper management, though I do see this changing with newly hired managers in multiple locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would actually advise those looking to join this company; when using research tools such as Glassdoor be mindful that with a large company (15,000+) our team includes all different professionals in the gas industry. A truck driver's opinion of his time with Airgas will vary from those in Real Estate pockets. Basically, use good judgement and do your research!

    As for management, be mindful of the idea of changing times... I think we are seeing more favorability to a more liberal environment, but if you want to attract young talent, flexibility is attractive!

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, opportunity to advance and a great safety program.

    Cons

    It's a dangerous environment if you don't follow SOP and the safety program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should spend time with the "blue collar" employees. They should get their hands dirty so they can understand and know the whole panorama of the business.

    I worked at Airgas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This company has great benefits, it keeps you in shape, you meet people from a multitude of industries which makes it enjoyable serving your customers. I enjoyed being out and about working at my pace to get the job done. The scenery isn't bad either depending on where you work. Florida was great.

    Cons

    Delivering bottled gases at a job site can be very frustrating (rolling bottles on dirt - getting bottles to the bottle rack). You have to be willing to work in all kinds of weather. Lightening storms can be fun on the back of a steel truck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The raises could be better.

    Pros

    Great place to learn something new and put your skills to work

    Cons

    Experience industry is definitely a plus. the gas industry is not a very common industry to work in because there isn't very much competition and isn't used by everyone like electronics for example.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People should be better assessed to be placed in the right positions for their skill sets
