Pros

Mediocre benefits package, vacation days are decent but even better if you're grandfathered in from a previous buyout. The only way one can see this company in a positive light is if you've started elsewhere and simply had no choice with a transfer.

Cons

Incompetence and politics clearly trump true work ethic and social responsibility within the workplace. Programs are in place promoting certain things, but it's merely a facade as it's hard to get excited about anything. This is corporate at its' worst, without regard for employees or the effect the company has on them.

Advice to Management

Where are the days when families still owned corporations? Are they really that far gone? Corporate means one thing these days, what the shareholder wants and expects and that is profit at any cost, regardless of the livelihoods at stake. Company officers work towards that goal alone, it's no lie.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Stable employment, decent benefits though they no longer give profit sharing unless you are salary. vacation days are better than most companies.

    Cons

    Too much management and too little of them know what they are doing. They are all about numbers, they do not care about your family life, work comes first. There is a lot of favortism and politics. The communication is very poor, they tend to change the rules as it best fits the company and the rules are unclear and not communicated properly.

    Advice to Management

    Quit!

    Pros

    Large orginization with full line of capibilites that has lots of technology at it disposal. Praxair as a whole has a solid performance in global market place with long standing track record

    Cons

    Praxair Distribution is somewhat of a redhead stepchild with different pay structure and benefits for the rest of the company or Praxair companies.
