    I worked at Praxair full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Praxair is a global company, giving you the opportunity to learn about people, cultures and business around the world. It is well run, and sells to so many industries that it is quite stable, even in downturns. Its employees tend to be fairly loyal and stay for a long time.

    Cons

    This can be a pro or con, depending on your perspective. Praxair is a very frugal company. The investors love this, employees not so much. I believe pay and benefits are commensurate with other companies in the area, but the online tools employees are given to use (e.g. expense reporting and HR systems) are usually cheaper and harder to use than "industry standard."
