    Pros

    They offer many opportunities for growth and professional development.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is sometimes a challenge. Competitive salaries but under average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Professional growth and salary increase go hand on hand. Salary increase is way to low compared with cost of life.

    Pros

    You really get to learn the process because you have a whole plant not just a unit. Process isn't dangerous for the most part. Pay is comparable to industry.

    Cons

    Slow to move, but what company isn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have less people in charge and bring in a bigger work force.

    I worked at Praxair full-time

    Pros

    Pay was ok , little higher then competitors.

    Cons

    you are doing three different positions and only getting paid for one. High turn over rate no work life balance. Insurance is ok as long as you do not have health problems and need to use it often. People making the calls have no idea how the plant is run or what goes into it daily. only can advance if you are willing to relocate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. change the health insurance. when en employee come in with years of good experience and turned down because there is someone who has a degree but no insurance its not always best . degrees are great but that paper only goes so far when they are thrown into having to do real work. id take the person who has over 20 years experience over the one who has no experience but a degree any day. especially when already understaffed. when we work 16 hour shifts day after day phone rings all hours of the night. a simple thank you once in a while goes a long way. especially when we are missing out on our whole family day in and day out.

    I have been working at Praxair as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    My favorite parts of Praxair were the fantastic people and great mentorship. If you have the drive to advance quickly, they will accommodate you and give you tougher challenges and visibility

    Cons

    Not particularly dynamic or cutting edge. Industrial gases as an industry doesn't have much more it can do beyond seeking better efficiencies.
