    Praxair is average and behind the times. They're tight with the buck.

    I have been working at Praxair full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Not the best employer, but not the worst. The benefits are average, at best. If you don't have strong technical skills, this is the place for you because they're behind technology-wise. Not a very fast-paced environment so no real pressure or push for employees to work overtime. The Danbury location has a cafeteria in the building and a bank; it's convenient. They also offer garage parking which is great in the winter especially since they never close the building due to snow storms, so you're pretty much expected to be at work even if it means you risk your life getting there. They're big on charitable donations and encourage (at least in theory) diversity within the company. Outside of the Administrative Assistants, everyone gets and office.

    Cons

    Management admits that the company is cheap and they're proud of it. But, then they don't have a problem spending thousands upon thousands of dollars hosting shareholder and board meetings at the St. Regis in Manhattan or throwing extravagant gala's for the executives.

    Salary increases (when there's no salary freeze in place) are below the average cost of living index. They don't encourage professional development. I've been here for 5 years and have yet to travel to any other locations to meet the people I work with on a daily basis. They don't invest in their employees by sending them to training seminars or classes to enhance their skills.

    I'm stuck in an office environment where there's little camaraderie; people pretty much keep to themselves. There are many employees that have been here 10, 20, even 30 years and with that comes a serious reluctance to change. I think it's very difficult for them to retain technologically advanced, talented young people who want to grow and be part of something bigger. The IT personnel here are useless. You're better off trying to investigate a technical problem on your own, otherwise you'll just be waiting indefinitely for IT to figure it out. They're bad at following up and just inefficient. Management is old-fashioned, stuffy, cold and keeps the 'good ole boys' network alive. The CEO rarely acknowledges anyone he passes by in the hall because he's too busy talking to himself.

    Outside of not working overtime and being able to take a lunch hour, they don't encourage a healthy work-life balance. No such thing as summer hours. No such thing as telecommuting. If you get 2 weeks vacation and you need just one more day, you have to pay for it - literally. You have to pay the company for vacation days. There are no holiday parties to speak of. If they bring in pizza for a department, each employee is asked for money to cover the cost. Good luck getting any supplies ordered. At one time, each employee was told they'll get one ream of paper per year and so they had to be very careful about what they print. All printers are automatically set up to print on both sides of the paper. The printers break down every few weeks. The fax machines are 15 years old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been here 5 years and so it's not unbearable; for where I am in my life, it works. But, management needs to know that most employees are just biding time until they either hit retirement or get a better offer in a better commuting location. Where there's no investment or appreciation of employees, there's no investment or loyalty to the employer. This isn't a career for me - it's just a job with average pay and average benefits which is more than a lot of people have right now in this economy. A note to management would be that your employees are not stupid. We see (and hear) a lot more than you may realize, but I put in my 40 hours and you give me a check and then we're even.
