    Advice to Management

    One upper management individual used to slam reports down on my supervisor's desk, everyone was afraid to blink around such tyranny, but this was accepted practice. My supervisor was so belittled she took it out on us. We got corrective memos if we put a staple in the wrong part of the invoice-they had to be in the left hand corner-precisely. Top level management watched for stuff like that and made an issue if someone slipped up-Ridiculous. But it made big ego's and control hungry people feel important.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Decent benefits, work schedule and flexibility.

    Cons

    Old boys network, inaccessible management, older average age in general, resistant to change. Corporate HQ buys out small mom-and-pop stores to add to their national conglomerate with little transition plan or additional incentive to stay. Poor earnings potential/opportunity for advancement. They don't invest in creating a uniform infrastructure or company culture, instead preferring to let the companies they buy out do business as usual under the Airgas name. Employees' opinions not heard.
