    I worked at Luxfer Gas Cylinders full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefit package. Co-workers are pleasant.

    Cons

    Poor communication skills even though it is trying to be changed. People skills for managers have a lot to be desired. Rudeness and unprofessional attitudes should not be tolerated by managers. Lead by example. HR is atrocious!

    Advice to Management

    Really be in tune with the employees concerns. Support the employees when conflicts arise.

    I worked at Luxfer Gas Cylinders full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great product protecting lives in various models. Great new AF product line.

    Cons

    "The Luxfer way" is the statement always made and it is not the way to do things but its the way to push it through to cross the finish line. Management does not stick to a plan and communicate well enough to all employees regularly, only when convenient to them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop patching the mistakes/errors and make changes that are necessary. Have drivers in the divers seat and show a sense of urgency for all management levels. Lack of leadership tends to build a lot of negativity in the lower ranks so management needs to manage and drive leadership and not have team leaders running the operations.

    Can be steady work. If you are a direct hire employee.

    Hot work in the summer, cold in the winter. Wages are much lower after the union was removed by the company in 2008. General machine operators were paid $17/hour with full benefits. Now starting wage is about $11/hour with partial benefits or now benefits it hire through a temp agency.

    Give better wages and benefits.
