I have been working at Linde North America full-time

Pros

The pay is competitive, good work/life balance, ability to work remotely, good co-workers, always something new to learn in this industry. I get my work done and no one bothers me. The benefits are excellent.

Cons

They are always looking for ways to cut back so it's hard to get new projects approved, new hardware and software, and travel & expense is a pain. IT is mostly handled from Germany and it can take forever to get a response to network or systems problems. They are behind the curve in technology, still using Windows 98 in a large portion of the organization!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen up on the purse strings. You're a multi-billion dollar company and it seems that you're more interested in looking like a world class company than actually being one.

    Pros

    Yes, you do get 2 days off a week. The pay is at best, average. Health care is decent. Equipment is somewhat maintained, but old.

    Cons

    LONG work weeks, they try to get EVERY hour they can out of a driver. Hypocrites when it comes to safety, they talk the talk, but DO NOT "walk the walk"..Safety is fine as long as you NEVER get fatigued and doesn't interfere with their sales. These people will put a tank ANYWHERE and safety be damned. Management says one thing and then does another or nothing at all. To my fellow drivers in the Midwest, East and South, it's ALL the same.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PRACTICE what you PREACH. Stop wasting our time with useless safety meetings if your intent is to do nothing to make any meaningful change. We are not stupid and see right through it. STOP "stepping over a dollar to save a dime". And cool it with the TOTAL emphasis on the DRI, it might please YOUR boss, but it is just more of the micromanagement that Linde seems to love.
