    I worked at Praxair full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility for a work/ life balance is a plus. Good benefits to support a healthy lifestyle. High safety practices.

    Cons

    A bit too lean all around. Employees are not reviewed as individuals during performance judgment. All are equal leading to under achievement and lack of integrity they sell to the public.

    Advice to Management

    leadership needs training on how to recognize achievers vs slackers.

    Pros

    Nice work environment, good business model and prudent conservative management style

    Cons

    Lacking career development advancement opportunities. As the firm is growing globally, the geopolitical balance has hindered employees reaching their full potentials.

    Advice to Management

    Mindset shift from product focused to human capital focused. Break the geopolitical barriers. Recognize and reward the talents and hard work of employees other than their geopolitical identity. Reward and promote only those excellent global resources.

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

    Pros

    Managers were understanding of family needs

    Plenty of 'parties' through the year with food and snacks

    Weekly causal days (jeans and t shirts)

    Benefits are nice.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great

    Often given a lot to do and expected to be done within a few hours

    Advice to Management

    Better pay. I received my Associate's and was expecting a little something. Nothing major, but I got nothing. Just a card saying 'Congrats'. That card doesn't feed my three kids.

    "Terrible work life balance; they need a union for both hourly and salary"

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Praxair full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was competitive. Not a bad place if you do not have a job, but do not leave a good job to work there

    Cons

    No work life balance. Executives do not care about the customers or employees, just keeping their bonus and jobs. You can be meeting / exceeding objectives and have your job eliminated the next day so they can make more profit. Quality is sacrificed to sales, cutting corners to make month end sales numbers

    Advice to Management

    Gain some integrity. Have some concern for the employees that are actually supporting you. Start caring about your employees and providing job security before you end up with a union because the employees are fed up with the way they are being treated, lack of quality integrity, and lack of job security
