I have been working at Praxair

Pros

Praxair is a very innovative company that responds to the needs of its employees. Work - life balance is not only expected, but encouraged. There are many activities that employees are encouraged to participate in outside of the normal work day. At Praxair, everyone is considered part of the team.

Cons

Overall the benefits at Praxair are above standard, however, Praxair could offer better health insurance to its employees. Currently the plan is very cumbersome and requires significant administrative effort on the part of the employee each time the insurance is utilized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improvement in communication between the many levels of management could go a long way in helping to align the goals of the Company. Including lower management in discussions with middle and upper management would significantly help to close the communication gap as they are the ones which deal with employees on a day to day basis.

    Pros

    Relatively stable. Able to capitalize on market opportunities. Treat people well and with respect.

    Cons

    Cooperation between business units and with corporate is a little lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive more standardization across business units and geographies! There is plenty of efficiency to be gained, but no motivation to go after it.

    Pros

    nice co-workers; easy work; can not think of any other reason why anyone should work there; close to home; that's about it

    Cons

    management is horrible; benefits are mediocre; the company as a whole needs to catch up to the twentieth century, forget about the twenty-first century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    motivate your employees; expand your benefits to balance work/home; organize your staff to work more efficiently; appreciate your employees; a happy place is a more productive place
