    I worked at Air Liquide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good learning atmosphere before all this started

    Cons

    - The top management says our manhour rate is too high and offloads the work to third party and cut the jobs of whole engineering team but if they would have looked closer, the manhour rate was high because of their salary, as you can also read in other reviews that the employees at lower level doesn't get much pay.
    - Inefficient management of things and no vision. The office was trabnsformed into a construction site for a month with unhealthy working environment. Sarcastically speaking no HSE team came into action then.
    - No vision needed as employees are fired on day to day basis.
    -And to top it all, the management hides its ineffective working by blaming it on the market situation.

    Advice to Management

    Please change.

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

    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.
