    Pros

    With Linde acquisition maybe it will become a better company

    Cons

    Insurance is different for each division - USIG gets a better plan over other divisions even though its the same company. I need to say "ME TOO" with regards to Praxair. A lot of sexual harassment by management, even a President of cylinder division. If you don't play along they will get rid of you through lay offs, eliminating your position, etc. Sometimes you feel like you need a shower when certain management teams would try to rub against you and then laugh about it. Praxair has an anonymous reporting system but they know who you are and I seen people being laid off after they reported things. Its a joke. Men would say women that work hard do unmentionable things and management and HR would not do a thing about it. Women become a joke at work and on the golf course. For the females that made it to the top congrats but for the ones that work hard and try to maintain their level of employment, colleagues will not have your back and if the females were honest that are still employed at Praxair and did not fear losing their job, they would admit what is being said here.

    Advice to Management

    They know what they need to do, they preach it, however, they just don't walk the walk.

    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."
