    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Air Liquide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Culture: Fostered learning, safety, and process improvement. This was a great opportunity to learn some very prized mechanical and technical processes. 5's , Lean Six, Kaizen, etc .. your progress is dependent on your eagerness to take on new task.

    Cons

    Work hours: some facilities operate 24/7 so not being a part of the senior operations can mean a rough schedule for you coming in.

    I have been working at Air Liquide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits package including vacation time are first-rate. Co-workers are nice people who do the best with limited resources.

    Cons

    Between corporate HQ in Paris and more oversight from USA HQ in Houston, hard to figure out who is running the show at the local level.

    Advice to Management

    Get the right staff for the job. Local office management seems to underestimate the level of effort needed to execute projects correctly, too many fire drills when some advance planning and written communications would give employees a sense of direction, and please be decisive when making important decisions that impact your workforce.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Air Liquide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Getting some extra income if one is willing to compromise on one's talent and self-esteem.

    Cons

    No teamwork, people are not smart, management itself compromises on data quality by reporting wrong results to Clients, forcefully making the QC pass by wrongly processing the data and not taking time out to troubleshoot the problem. Some stupid people working here long-term are highly reluctant to making any improvements in automating the processes etc. and if smart people try to improve the processes and making... them more efficient, their mouth is shut by everyone. Even the management supports the dumb folks who have their monopoly here. I would not advise smart people to work here. If you only want to earn few extra dollars (they don't pay that well too) and do not have any other option for income and can do work that is a no-brainer and even a high-schooler can do, and dont open their mouth at all to make any improvements, just quietly accept and do what is being told to do even if it is wrong, then that kind of a person can survive here for sometime. No scope of career growth.

    Advice to Management

    No advise as none of the advise is going to make any difference here because the problem runs from top to bottom. They have literally put clowns in their management who have no value for talent and education.
