    Pros

    Strong company to work for that will stay relevant for years to come. If you find your niche its a good place to work.

    Cons

    Large company where large levels of bureaucracy abound. Turnover or job changes occur frequently, especially with higher level management. Many mid-level managers seem to have been in the same role for decades.

    Advice to Management

    Could improve the work/life balance a bit more. Try giving employees better options for flex schedules.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Air Liquide (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Room to grow - geographically diverse, multiple business lines
    Good benefits - but trending downward
    Rotational program for college hires - great way to start career
    Safe work environment - both in corporate & operations settings
    Employees generally all care about doing the right things

    Cons

    Middle of the road compensation
    Overly politically correct HR - many special action groups
    Airgas acquisition - large impact in U.S. and destabilizing effect on employees & benefits
    Frequent turnover in senior leadership - drives short-term focus

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to look inward at its long-term, committed employees for opportunities vs. focusing on a youth movement or external hires.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    I thought they were a great company that really took care of their people, until they sold us all down the river.

    Cons

    Getting forced into AirGas. Air Liquide bought AirGas and gave half of their people to AirGas, a bottom-feeding retail outfit that seems to have implemented a three year plan to run us all out and replace us with cheaper workers. 20+ years as a loyal Air Liquide employee and now I lose my retirement and can't afford the crazy expensive Airgas benefits, so I have to start all over again somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    If you care at all about all your loyal people you dumped into Airgas, do something to help us. You own Airgas, for gosh sake get rid of the bottom feeding cheapskate Airgas culture and bring them up to Air Liquide Standards. Air Liquide spends so much time and resources finding and keeping the best people, and now you're going to just let Airgas run them all out?
