    Pros

    Great place to get a good understanding of a well run company. Praxair is very safety aware, so you will get a great education on safety.

    Cons

    Management changes frequently and doesn't seem to give the operators much say in how things operate. Seems to be a good ole boy network

    Advice to Management

    Involve the operators in more decision making of how things are done on the shop floor. Some of us would love to help improve our conditions.
