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

Pros

- Flextime (for MOST departments; obviously some Job Requirements for certain positions won't allow) - it actually motivates me to get in earlier, so I can get out earlier and be more productive
- Location
- Office culture and co-workers; I am a new grad in my first full-time role. Due to frequent acquistions, Airgas company culture evolves frequently as well. Long story short, we're all new and learn together. I don't feel intimidated, just welcomed
- Employee Benefits; great vacation time, salary and tuition reimbursement... this is ideal for a young professional

Cons

- This is a large company with a corporate feel (not an issue for me, but I can see this won't be appealing for everyone)
- With large companies, there is a lot of learning that goes with it. However, the Business Support Centers (BSCs) were recently put into place to streamline policies and general work flow
- Some old school mentalities still exist in upper management, though I do see this changing with newly hired managers in multiple locations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would actually advise those looking to join this company; when using research tools such as Glassdoor be mindful that with a large company (15,000+) our team includes all different professionals in the gas industry. A truck driver's opinion of his time with Airgas will vary from those in Real Estate pockets. Basically, use good judgement and do your research!

As for management, be mindful of the idea of changing times... I think we are seeing more favorability to a more liberal environment, but if you want to attract young talent, flexibility is attractive!

    Pros

    Airgas, now more than ever, is looking into all aspects of their current business and now taking the time to invest in gaining a greater understanding of their work force and how to ensure we continue to get the right people on the bus to drive continued success. The people I have the pleasure of working with are all hard-working, dedicated, and engaged in their jobs day in and day out and are proud to call Airgas home.

    Cons

    Not much to note here.
