    Pros

    Company is doing well financially, Pay raises are small, Large company, many options and locations, most locations are in not nice places, though. Most employees are nice normal people. Good work life balance

    Cons

    Pay is below average, Middle Management is clueless, Employees are not recognized for their work, only for their connections. The Good old boy club is in charge. Praxair manager discourage employees from moving up the ladder via a different department and are "Blocked" by management from changing jobs

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the "Blocking" internal moves, as many good employees just go elsewhere, pay raises force many people to look elsewhere
