    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the people. Everyone is friendly and willing to help if you reach out to them.

    Cons

    The worst part was the monotonous daily tasks that are extremely repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Lots of caring, talented people.

    Cons

    Centralized management. Managers at the local level don't have any real authority to effect change yet they take the hard hits daily from regional types as well as the front line folks. Work-life balance is the worst of any position I've had throughout my career. The stress level and hours demanded are frankly, inhuman. Few if any seem to get any satisfaction from what they do. It's a job, nothing more. Many feel trapped due to economy over past 5 years, if & when that improves, there will be many that take the first train out of town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decentralize more. Your middle manager types for the most part are very good at what they do. You'll never get the buy-in needed from them or the folks downstream with current culture.

    I worked at Praxair Distribution full-time

    Pros

    Company car available for personal use, good coworkers

    Cons

    I saw my manager twice in a year and would't get responses to phone calls or emails. Lack of communication hurt business. Company is on a spending freeze. Will not reinvest in itself and things are going down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get sales managers that actually care. This company feels like a out of touch corporation that doesn't care about employees.
