Used to be a very good place to work, but lack of leadership and vision is causing AP to get beat badly by competitors.

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

    Pros

    - Culture of continuous improvement
    - Managers tend to have deep technical and business knowledge
    - Very well established mechanisms for professional development (e.g. career development program)
    - High mobility

    Cons

    The size of the company sometimes leads to effort duplication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is positive that many people in management worked their way up internally from technical positions, hence making them technically competent while reinforcing a unique corporate culture. However, this strategy also has the potential of missing on new ideas and business models which could make our company more competitive.
