I worked at Airgas full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good pay, fair chance to advance, good benefits for a family with children. Also pretty secure company to be employed with.

Cons

Tough work, slow processing of cooperate paperwork and at times the culture can make one feel down.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become more open to hearing suggestions from employees that do the real work day in and day out.

    I worked at Airgas full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good financials, industry fairly "recession-proof", many locations, tremendous opportunity for the right people.

    Cons

    Management by "who do you like, who do you know" rather than on real, objective performance and first hand experience of the individual worker. Poorly prepared managers, no coaching for success (rarely, have to be "boss lucky" and your "press" needs to be very positive.
    First impression was that co-workers do not treat each other well, not supportive--almost mean to each other.
    Local culture is leader dependent, not aligned with corporate culture.

    Women in power is a no-no. You will be fired at the drop of a hat.

    Pros

    They will move you up but only if your position is no longer needed then they will find a way to fire you. If your a women.

    Cons

    They terminate good people all the time
     only to get bottom of the barrel employees. NEVER EVER SIGN ANY DISAPLINARY PAPERS. NEVER! There is a LOT of illegal things going on at these plants....Shhhhhh. Don't call the FDA on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To bad on this advice block. They refuse to take advice unless its from the "official advice" person. They just keep trying to reinvent the wheel. SELL THE COMPANY!!! Oooops that was advice.
