    Pros

    A large company that still treats its employees as the most valuable resource and investment they can make. You are able to create your own success plan and management will help you attain your personal growth goals. The company is fiscally conservative and did not have very many layoffs, just encouraged a few of the long timers who were eligible for retirement to retire.

    Cons

    Advancement is the only way to gain large percetnage wage increases. The raises are reasonable, not every manager has a clear understanding of the review process and how to conduct it effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

    Pros

    Air Liquide promotes from within the ranks. Your career is only limited by your ambition and desire to learn. Air LIquide is a financially conservative company, as such weathered the economic melt down and came out ahead with an increase in profitability over the previous year. Air Liquide empowers their employees to make decisions and usually supports those decisions. It is a great place to work and have a career not just a job. The customer base and uses for their product are diverse and cover the entire spectrum from a small mom and pop operation to multi-million dollar refineries. Air Liquide has a profit sharing plan called Goal$hare that is usually worth about 4% of your base salary.

    Cons

    There are eight business units or entities that make up Air Liquide America. Each is operated and behaves like its own company. If you do not have a degree or an MBA your advancement is limited.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Be willing to spend money to improve infrastructure even during the down times.

    Pros

    Air Liquide believes in developing their people; giving them opportunities to grow and succeed. If you are willing to work hard you will be rewarded and recognized. Although working hard is recognized, it is with the encouragement to maintain a life/work balance. The future is bright at Air Liquide, not just as a business that is stable and positioned to do very well in the coming years, but as a great place to work.

    Cons

    The attitude towards current technology. Also, the work environment is a little lacking. Many employees are in cubicles with the lower walls. The cubicles would be more tolerable if they would invest in the higher walls.

    Air Liquide takes care of its employees, has strong financial performance and provides variety of ways to advance your career. It is especially good if you are looking for opportunities to work in and around the US or internationally.

    Sometimes the Group's decision-making process can be quite slow and information-intensive, leading to frustration and lost business. The Group also does a poor job of keeping its IT solutions up-to-date.

    Advice to Management

    Please help to simplify internal decision-making processes.
