I worked at Airgas

Pros

Decent benefits, work schedule and flexibility.

Cons

Old boys network, inaccessible management, older average age in general, resistant to change. Corporate HQ buys out small mom-and-pop stores to add to their national conglomerate with little transition plan or additional incentive to stay. Poor earnings potential/opportunity for advancement. They don't invest in creating a uniform infrastructure or company culture, instead preferring to let the companies they buy out do business as usual under the Airgas name. Employees' opinions not heard.

No opinion of CEO

    mid management suffers from indecision, refuse to listen to others closer to the source.

    Pros

    stock purchase plan, some good people that care. Does offer tutition coverage as benefit, also a "recession proof' type job in tanker division.

    Cons

    poor pay, high benefit costs to employee, limited advancement opportunitty unless you are a "yes man" to management. Hours change so often it is hard to have family life, more and more work is dumped on the ones doing work that those lazy have it easy. WIll not fire anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously evalute your mid management and send them to training school. Lot of low level employees are smart and understand more of what is good and wrong with the company, but cannot be heard because of the many layers of management. Start living up to the ethic training we go through each year.
