I have been working at Air Liquide full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Decent training and good place to build 'portable' skill sets. Salary and benefits are seem to be on par with the industry. Jobs are incredibly stable. Phantom options are a nice way of keeping people if your one of the few to get them.

Cons

AL hasn't announce a major 'new' investment in a very long time. It is understandable that higher level jobs are filled from France (being a French company) but I don't understand why Canadians seem to be the preferred management stock. Attrition is very high and I'm seeing talent leave in droves. People who are left behind seem to be those who aren't wanted elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a metric to analyze the entire management team (name brand MBAs or actual involvement in major investments). Many of these new Directors and VP's haven't accomplished anything and its a moral killer when good people are passed over.

    Way to much oversight , extremely micro managed , high turnover , they try to bullie you into compliance , management power grabs, Air Liquide has a tendency to waist big money on nothing ..

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, very nice employees always willing to help you learn, good flexibility

    Cons

    can be "clicky" at times, networking is a must for vertical movement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    promote based on performance, not on networking ability
