When the economy tanked, so did their concern for their employees

I&E Technician (Current Employee)

ProsNot a lot of micro management, lots of overtime, and a commitment for safety

ConsLots of overtime, corporate management is constantly changing things, and the farther away you are from Tonawanda, NY, the less they care about you and your plant.

Advice to Senior ManagementMany Praxair plants are on the grounds of other industrial plants. Compare what their employees in similar roles say about their company to what Praxair's employees say about Praxair. In so many words, no one will envy your position at Praxair.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
