I worked at Air Liquide full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Dedicated employees, great benefits, challenging work, fair.

Cons

More process oriented than results oriented; being headquartered in Paris adds to the bureaucracy; not very collaborative at the business unit level

Advice to Management

Performance appraisal process is too long and cumbersome; no performance appraisal process should take 4 months to get through one cycle. Communications at the macro level are great, at the implementation level however, people are left to their own devices to figure things out because too little time and training are made available. Listen more and engage employees in solutions and decision making. Employee survey is a great effort, but managers are torn in so many directions they don't have time to do anything about what they hear. Management culture is old fashioned and top down. But the company is really trying to do the right thing and puts a lot of effort into it.

    Pros

    Benefits are not bad for the industry, Large company with many locations around the world. Opportunity to learn new skills and or put them into practice.

    Cons

    Frequent promises and no action or follow through. Poor decisions by upper management and some make you scratch your head an say "what were they thinking?"

    Advice to Management

    Give more authority and trust to your local management to make the correct decisions. Practice what you preach. Safety First? Is it Really?
