    I have been working at Praxair full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not a lot of micro management, lots of overtime, and a commitment for safety

    Cons

    Lots of overtime, corporate management is constantly changing things, and the farther away you are from Tonawanda, NY, the less they care about you and your plant.

    Advice to Management

    Many Praxair plants are on the grounds of other industrial plants. Compare what their employees in similar roles say about their company to what Praxair's employees say about Praxair. In so many words, no one will envy your position at Praxair.


  2. "Good company with organizational issues"
