I worked at Praxair as an intern

Pros

Praxair is a consistently successful company with a major focus on safety. The culture is fast-paced and relatively traditional. The people are generally friendly, willing to help, and good at their jobs. The intern program is great and allows the interns to do hands-on projects and interact with people at various levels of the company. As an intern, you also interact with other interns on a group project as well as social events.

Cons

Some of the processes are inefficient and cumbersome, but that is common in many large regulated companies. Another con is that headquarters are in Danbury, CT and a major office is in Tonawanda, NY, so if you don't want to move there your opportunities will probably be limited.

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

    Pros

    Stable job, challenging, room for advancement, Marketplace leader in US, well performing stock

    Cons

    Salary and benefits are falling behind industry average, must be on the "in-crowd" for the more lucrative positions

    Advice to Management

    The constant belt tightening at the plant and mid-management level is not consistent with corporate earnings. There is a disconnect between the top and bottom. Bring salary back to par will help retain talent.


  2. "Hostile work environment, limited advancement opportunities"
