    I worked at Praxair full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company is so old school, benefits like pension and severance pay are still lying around.

    Cons

    If you're not an engineer (and even if you are), literal hell on earth. Operates like a business made of bubble gum ans cardboard. Only people who enjoy working here are the type of people who enjoy root canals. Every step of getting anything business-oriented done is monumentally painful.

    Pros

    Only pros are "some" employees are knowledgeable and care about their fellow teammates.

    Cons

    Completely dysfunctional! Managers do not take responsibility for their actions. Training doesn't exist, you are thrown to the wolves. HR literally is there to collect a check.. they honestly do not care.
