    Pros

    The company being so lean, gives one the capability of doing and learning many different roles. This really helps develop careers, but only if you have a defined goal for yourself.

    Cons

    The company is very lean so a lot of personnel are worked quite a bit. Cutting costs is typically more important than reliability.

    I worked at Air Liquide full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Livable salary. Commissions were good at one time. Ample supply of available product to sell in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Buyout of Airgas is ruining morale.
    Took away good part of Air Liquide and adapting to Airgas style. Why? Air Liquide purchased Airgas not the other way around!

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff who made the company successful.

    I have been working at Air Liquide full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime. Never get held accountable for wrong doing. Somewhat ok benefits. Good schedule when fully staffed. Some coworkers are great to work with.

    Cons

    No one is held accountable..Buyout of airgas is ruining moral....Advancement to next level takes forever...not in hurry to train new people or cross train...more reactive than proactive/preventive place to work. Overkill on safety....salary lower than national average...seems like the ones that stay under radar and don't try to improve are the ones that get rewarded vs the ones that do care get punished.

    Advice to Management

    Grow some balls and start holding people accountable. Weed out the bad seeds and bring in fresh talent and pay more competitive.

    I worked at Air Liquide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Affinity groups that help to promote synergy.

    Cons

    Poor senior and executive leadership strategies designed to blame versus to take ownership of their own failed strategies, most of which were outdated and not relevant to US market.

    Advice to Management

    Look in the mirror. Change starts at the top and flows down. If outcomes are not producing desired results..admit failure and then re strategize for success. Don't keep pouring new wine into old wineskins.
