I worked at Praxair

Pros

Close to home. Decent benefits. Knowledgable staff. Strong commitment to safety.

Cons

Low morale due to poor management and communications. Tons of travel. Low pay accompanied with 16 hour days and no recognition, only push for additional "commitment". Old, outdated systems like Lotus Notes for email. Too. Many engineers, have managed to over complicate the simplest tasks and processes. Poor office politics and BS bonus scheme.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to your start up business segments.
