    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Praxair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company for the most part cares about their people. A very good team atmosphere and retention is higher than normal so you work with a lot of the same people.
    Great benefits and negotiable salaries. Lots of lateral movement.

    Cons

    Staffing tends to be on the lower side so work loads tend to be higher. Training is at a minimum. You are expected to jump into the pool and swim fast. Those who don't tend to leave. Those who stay learn to rely on their coworkers. Hence the great team working environment.

    Advice to Management

    Enact a more professional training environment. Be willing to jump in or hire when you staff requests help.

    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.
