    Pros

    Great job security and stability. Good potential for advancement. Benefits are competitive 401k with company match. 2 weeks off your first full year.

    Cons

    Company seems to operate so lean that sometimes leads to shooting themselves in the foot. My local branch has one person in store- the branch manager who is way over loaded. And 2 truck drivers.... we do between 4-5 million dollars a year. Workload is unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an appropriate amount of staff at Branches.

    I have been working at Praxair full-time

    Pros

    We design and build high tech equipment that we integrate into robotic thermal spray cells. These spray cells are used all over the world for anything from aircraft engine parts to oil well drills to wind mill components. Everyday brings a new and exciting challenge. We also have a great team atmosphere where everybody does what it takes to make each project a success.

    Cons

    We are part of a big company (which is also a positive) which means we do have a little red tape to deal with at times. All in all it is not a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing in more work. We love the challenge to take our company to the next level.

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

    Pros

    -Employee safety comes first.
    -Tuition reimbursement available for those that want to move up in their career.
    -Upper management is open to giving anyone new responsibility that wants to prove themselves.
    -Unlimited progression if you show up, work hard and take initiative in yourself and within the company. This has been my personal experience starting as an entry level employee and advancing through the ranks.
    -Many co-workers have significant longevity in the company and within the industry, all of which are more than open to share their knowledge with you.
    -Flexible scheduling and chill atmosphere.

    Cons

    -Free coffee may create caffeine addiction

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to grow the company within by mentoring new employees towards career success and grow younger employees behind the older generation for future fulfillment.
