    I worked at Praxair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Job security, great peers and fantastic, comprehensive benefits. The pay is fair to excellent. Management checks in a lot but is fair.

    Cons

    It got very stressful at times with uncertain requests and deadlines. It can be hard to get a response because of waiting for answers from a chain of command.

    Advice to Management

    Just be honest if you won’t get an answer for a while.

    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."

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and an amazing learning experience. Decent pay right out of school and employees have the opportunity to interact with sophisticated planning software.

    Cons

    New employees either have to work the afternoon or midnight shift, and schedules are rotating, so weekends off are few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Management does a great job, but needs to develop more paths for advancement and development within the organization. This would significantly lower turnover rates.
