    I have been working at Air Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Culture of continuous improvement
    - Managers tend to have deep technical and business knowledge
    - Very well established mechanisms for professional development (e.g. career development program)
    - High mobility

    Cons

    The size of the company sometimes leads to effort duplication

    Advice to Management

    It is positive that many people in management worked their way up internally from technical positions, hence making them technically competent while reinforcing a unique corporate culture. However, this strategy also has the potential of missing on new ideas and business models which could make our company more competitive.
