Air Liqude offers a great benefits package and 401k with employer match. However, as of the recent acquisition of Airgas, it was generally believed that some benefits and 401k matching would diminish in quality slightly in the near future.
ppo insurance, 401k, disability,
Service based Enhanced 401(K) was awesome.
You had several health choices, but the company remove the PPO selection. No retirement, and it seems the company is moving towards the employee paying more of the health package.
Insurance plans are expensive and have high deductibles. Vacation is limited compared to the average. No maternity leave policy.
Good health insurance; 401k starts at an "average" match but increases with tenure.
401k with company match is very good
Benefits used to be a strong point for Air Liquide. Over the past 5 years, they've become more costly, especially for employees with children If you're part of the newly formed airgas division, your benefits will be terrible
The cost of benefits has dramatically shifted towards the employee. The "cost" of medical insurance almost tripled but the coverage is horrible. super high deductibles for everything. The annual performance increases are low and based on COL it becomes a negative year over year. The recent purchase of Airgas has made the problem even worse. Getting moved from the AL side to Airgas took $18K out of our take home pay essentially. A lot of the benefits listed are offered but at a non-competitive price. They price their "benefits" so high to drive you away from using them.
all perks were lost when the airgas buyout took place, we buy airgas then workers get airgas benefits if that's what you call them.
