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

Pros

Youre able to get a lot of experience in the first 5 years of your career that would likely take longer to get at other companies. Most of the people here are friendly and willing to help each other out espicially in the pipeline zones.

Cons

The corporate office culture is very different than other areas of the company. Some groups there seem happy and are able to achieve work\life balance but others are miserable. Managers are often promoted from technical positions and are unlikely to have the personality for being a great manager. A lot of time is spent on non high value added activities in certain departments and can be frustrating to high performers.

Advice to Management

A culture change at corporate would be nice. There are very few activities for employees' families to attend and the environment is very lacking compared to working in the plants. We spend more time at work than with our families so work should feel like family and it doesnt at the Post Oak office.

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

    Pros

    Goes beyond just saying people are important, but rather believes and practices it. Not perfect but a good place to work. Senior mangement can be a bit stuffy at times and focus too much on numbers. HR Leadership is rather clueless.

    Cons

    Could improve by embracing flexible work arrangements more.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people more. Be able to accept criticism so you can truly improve. You really do not know what people want unless you ask - and then listen to the answers.


  2. "Great Company, Great People!"

    I have been working at Air Liquide full-time (More than a year)

    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.
