I have been working at Airgas full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

significant resources and longevity in the market; extensive knowledge base and experts to call in for help. Most people have a team mentality.

Cons

Bureaucracy, inablity to blend acquisitions, uper management too far removed from the daily environment. Communication is atrocious. transparency needs work, mistakes that look like greed engender mistrust in the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

work on forecasting the impact of decisions. The local feel has been lost. Talent is leaving quickly and the company will suffer for it.

Recommends

    Great training experience, however the work is not consistent which makes planning for the future difficult.

    I have been working at Airgas part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Get rope rescue training. Many of the guys that work there are firefighters or have at least completed a fire academy so there is a degree of professionalism.

    Cons

    The assignments are never set in stone. Most of the work is not local. End dates for projects change frequently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to be more well defined. Communication with customers and employees can be improved upon.

    I have been working at Airgas

    Pros

    Good Job that provides opportunity to really get to know/manage your customers. Broad range of products to sell

    Cons

    Your coworkers play a huge part in your success or failure. So, if you don't have a good team around you it could be bad. Some regions are not very inclusive and weary of working with "outsiders". The the "good ol' boy" culture prevails.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication with salesforce and employees is needed. Lack of training and support prevails. Beware of nepotism and "favors" for friends

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
