Pros

Very talented technical people to work with. Solid company for establishing a career. Management supports both career and personal growth. Management understands work/life balance - work hard, play hard

Cons

Benefit package is overrated and terrible. Company maintains core focus on business, making changes to other areas slow to adopt. Project management adherence slows work execution.

Advice to Management

Knock down the silos and walls so that work can be completed with less paperwork and reviews. Adopt newer technologies for next generation of workforce (collaborative / remote office).

    So far, it's a good place to make a living and applied what you learned to your daily work. However, too much politics.

    Pros

    - Large, diverse company makes it easy to work in a number of positions - Strong performing company makes your retirement stock actually worth something. - Very capable with its core competencies - Air seperation, distribution

    Cons

    - Global company without a global IT strategy - 95% of work in operations is maintaining and deploying the same technology platforms that were developed in the 80's. - Lack of vision in upper middle managment sitfles energy and innovation. Concerned with maintaining power structures and empires. Very high turnover rate for younger (40 and under), talented employees.

    Advice to Management

    You need to find a way to keep to good people.
