    I have been working at Airgas full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Stable employment, cool industry. The company has been around for 30+ years and is constantly acquiring new businesses.

    -pretty good healthcare plan (assuming you're not in need of specific LGBT needs), standard days off (2 weeks to start), generous with sick days

    -Lots of opportunities for education in the industry

    -Work / life balance in inside sales, sales support and other office jobs good

    -Safety culture is very thorough

    Cons

    -Very non-friendly to LGBT people. Company insurance plans specifically exclude health coverage related to LGBT healthcare.

    -At least in branches, a lot of the older guys making sexist/homophobic/transphobic comments on the regular. (Yes, even in 'liberal' cities like seattle or portland).

    -Opportunities for growth seem rather limited unless you're willing to relocate

    Advice to Management

    You should consider making the environment not toxic to LGBT people. The amount of phobia I've experienced both directly and indirectly is staggering.

    Pros

    The time I was with the company was decent. Training was great

    Cons

    Management needs to be retrained on how to properly manage associates instead of intimidating them and breaking them down.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates how you like to be treated... with respect!

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

    Pros

    Paid biweekly, consistent pay at least.

    Cons

    Awful & expensive benefits compared to Air Liquide.
    Lost 5% of company matched 401k when Air Liquide adopted Airgas benefits.
    Communication lacked compared to Air Liquide.

    Advice to Management

    They should have kept the same Air Liquide business model instead of adopting the Airgas model. Many great employees lost their jobs due to the acquisition and realignment of the company. Take into consideration all of the experience that was lost.
