    I have been working at Air Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is above average for the area. Employment here is a good stepping stone for the next opportunity. Excellent people to work with (minus management), until everyone starts getting laid off.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Management including HR put on the façade that they care about you but at the end of the day you're just a number, regardless how well you perform. Layoffs after layoffs, even the key design and engineering groups are being moved to outside of the country. What was once a great American company is literally one of the worst places to work that I can think of. Favoritism is very apparent. Again, layoffs after layoffs while touting that the company is doing great and were achieving so much, etc. My advice is don't work here, but if you must, get the experience and get out.

    Advice to Management

    You are so oblivious to the turmoil, lack of motivation, and low morale that any advice given would be absolutely useless. More than likely you wouldn't care what employees have to say anyway.

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good

    Cons

    outdated facilities
    doesn't care about employee
    outsource work to China and India over engineering at home headquarters
    no form of team building or developing of career
    more about who you know that what you know for promotion which leads to over budget in time and money on projects

    I worked at Air Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People who really does the dirty work are nice to work with.

    Cons

    New top management/business people have no clues of what they are doing to this company. Layoffs and turnovers everywhere. The fundamental layer is trimmed down so thin. Stressful working environment for operation groups who are doing the dirty work.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your business growth and strategies in the market. Don't set a unreachable target to please shareholder. Please care about the people out of your hearts instead of a slogan.
