I worked at Airgas

Pros

The people. The people are great. Decent Benefits. Airgas isn't know for how well it pays it's people, but overall compensation is fair.

Cons

Like I said, the people are great until you start getting into Management. Upper management is too concerned with covering their butts (or kissing the right ones) to care/listen about/to their employees. One Area VP in particular doesn't know crap about management and rules by imitating those below him. The rotating presidents was a joke. The longest tenured of the 3 was by far the worst; but at least he didn't care. The next one, cared, but he didn't understand what he was doing. I think that's actually a much scarier combination. The current Pres. is pretty good; but like the culture dictates, if you're not "in", then your out (and will be treated accordingly.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change the culture to stop managing my exception and by intimidation. The people in this company are your largest asset; treat them accordingly.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow to new positions in your career, it's the best way to increase your earning power. Airgas does a great job at promoting from within.

    Cons

    Poor overall compensation plan. Annual salary increases are low enough that long term employees fall below market value and are lured away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put together a compensation plan that keeps long term employees in similar positions in line with what the market offers.
