    I have been working at Airgas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of potential to transfer within company and company would rather promote from within then fill a position from outside the company.

    Cons

    Many people are overworked and under paid. They'd rather watch you kill yourself with hours then hire additional help. Too top heavy in upper management that also gets paid too much.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down upper management, hire more counter/store help and pay those in the customer facing positions more since they're the ones that make sales grow.

    Pros

    Care’s about employees, constant training, constant opportunity to grow or expand. Constant challenges that make you better adept moving forward.

    Cons

    None that are specific to this company. If anything, implementing change takes time here, as it does at large companies across the board.

    "Unfair management"

    Pros

    Good employee benefits. Compatible wage and flex time.

    Cons

    Management promotes employees on based on their brownnosing skills instead of their work ethics. Management will not promote a seasoned employee who does their job to the best of their abilities but lacks the skills to be politically correct. In short it does not matter how well or how knowledgeable you are at the job but how well you compliment management.

    Advice to Management

    Look at employees work ethics before promoting them.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Decent pay (only due to being a legacy Air Liquide employee). Strong tendency toward promotion from within, as long as you are willing to cut corners and also put the company's needs above home/family...

    Cons

    Little to no actual training. Frequently understaffed (which could be remedied faster if there were an actual training program). Inundated with useless and nonsensical trainings and corporate emails. Unsafe working conditions: Work being performed without lock-out/tag-out by the facility manager. Failure to acquire management of change for equipment changes. Bending and breaking the rules and Sop's to suit budgetary restrictions and time constraints. Federal regulations (OSHA, FDA, EPA) disregarded due to ignorance or inconvenience. Frequent safety and reliability issues are patched up and ignored until there is no choice but to address the issue.

    When the local management isn't sneaking out early, they are overbearing and abusive. Communication with upper management is non-existent. No access to company directories to get help when the local management team is of no use. Distribution is in a constant state of disarray, sending trucks in criss-crossing paths and to customers who do not need product for the sole reason of needing somewhere to send the truck drivers every day. Many critical people were liquidated or left when we became Airgas. The work that these people did was shuffled off on to other already overworked employees.

    All of these issues have intensified since the Airgas/Air Liquide merger.

    Advice to Management

    We at the local level have no idea who our HR, Payroll, EHS, etc contacts are. Give us contact info for people within our own company so that we can resolve these issues. Upper management and EHS personnel need to regularly make themselves available to those on the ground level at each plant - apart from assuaging words of the local management - so that a more accurate picture of the company can be portrayed and addressed.

    Please help us fix this company...before you lose the few good employees you have left.

    Pros

    Good benefits and solid work environment on the Operations side. Company allows transfers to other areas of the country.

    Cons

    Sales group over commits to gain new business. Not all managers are on board with change, growth strategies and job transfers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't over reach to enforce policies. Get the Sales group to truly cooperate with Operations.
