"A mediocre place for mediocre people."

Pros

Stable, very hard to get fired, good résumé booster. I really like the houston area.

Cons

Lack of talent, low pay, human resources has way too much influence of the movement of personnel and shaping the future of the company.

Advice to Management

Expect more from your personnel. It is typical that people can "go through the motions" with their career here and be fine. There is no expectation of high work performance.

    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.
