    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.

    I have been working at Praxair (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very consistent sales and higher profit margins compared to industry. This leads to very stable employment. Many workers here are lifers who have worked for the company for 20+ years.

    Cons

    Management is reluctant to hire the positions necessary to run the business efficiently. Most workers are over-worked and not paid enough to reflect that extra work.
