I worked at Air Liquide full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Dedicated employees, great benefits, challenging work, fair.

Cons

More process oriented than results oriented; being headquartered in Paris adds to the bureaucracy; not very collaborative at the business unit level

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Performance appraisal process is too long and cumbersome; no performance appraisal process should take 4 months to get through one cycle. Communications at the macro level are great, at the implementation level however, people are left to their own devices to figure things out because too little time and training are made available. Listen more and engage employees in solutions and decision making. Employee survey is a great effort, but managers are torn in so many directions they don't have time to do anything about what they hear. Management culture is old fashioned and top down. But the company is really trying to do the right thing and puts a lot of effort into it.

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

    Pros

    This company is conservative and secure. The company has very good practice when it comes designing air separation unit.

    Cons

    Too conservative, lack of innovation. It is very difficult to adopt your newer and better idea. A lot of knowledge is controlled by the headquarter in France

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to adopt new ideas.
