Great place to work
Senior Buyer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 8, 2017
Air Liquide is an outstanding place to work. I would still be there if their acquisition of Air Gas had not taken place. I enjoyed working there and the people are fantastic. I would go back to Air Liquide in a heart beat.
Pros
Good benefits, great work environment, fantastic people

Each business unit is a totally different company experience.
Instrumentation & Controls Engineer (Former Employee) –  Newport, DEAugust 8, 2017
Air Liquide is a Global Group name owning multiple subsidiaries for example the merchant products group where I had over 10 years experience was quite different than large Industries or the other business units... so the experience varies based on the culture... and research and development is different than the others as well. Although it took effort, sometimes great effort to get the groups to work together my roles and responsibilities off and required multiple group participation to create the solution this is probably true in any large company but there was no proactive way to gain inter-department cooperation.

Micro Managed
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Germantown, WIJuly 25, 2017
Air Liquide is like an extension of high school. If your not in a cool group and depending on who your manager is an 8 hour day could seem endless and every day seem like Monday.
Pros
The new building is great
Cons
Too clicky

The workplace culture is great, you get to learn a lot from different business cultures, especially French. You get to work with people from a variety of nationalities. The global environment enhances our professional careers.

Employees are robots
Level 3 Gas & Chemical Technician (Former Employee) –  Malta, NYJuly 7, 2017
Employees at that company are treated like robots management does not want anything to do with its employees. Change chemicals do everything asked of you and don't ever need the company to be there for you for anything. Pay rate is good only costs your soul. Management has no respect or appreciation for its employees. Work atmosphere is watch your back the employees really enjoy a roll you under the bus mentality and pass the day by bad mouthing eachother planning how to get you fired. Shift supervisors are very sneaky, and fosters distrust in employees, global foundries pushes air liquide around and in turn air liquide mistreats employees. A good start for single men from Texas, everyone else is sol.
Pros
Pay rate
Cons
No life

Decent pay and benefits
Medical cylinder filler/Driver (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 24, 2017
I worked at Air Liquide for several years and was trained in a variety of different areas. The benefits were decent and the pay was competitive but could have been better.The hours can be long and the work stressful but it all depends on what job you are doing. Some managers I worked with were good people but others were all business and treated employees like they didn't matter. If you can handle long hours,stressful situations,and some non caring managers then you will do okay here but beware you can be terminated at any time regardless of your dedication,hard work and years of service.
Pros
Hour lunch, coworkers, decent pay and benefits.
Cons
Management, Long hours, stressful

A once great company that has forgotten what made them great.
Lab Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Fremont, CAJune 16, 2017
This is NOT a review for Air Liquide but rather a review for Balazs Nanoanalysis.

The bottom line is that Baalzs has become but a mere pit stop for those looking for a paycheck until they finish school, a quick year on their resume once they finish their undergrad or find their ideal job. This is more than apparent by the employee turnover rate.

Cross training and career growth is embarrassingly poor and office politics rather than one's work ethic determines the opportunities that are presented to you.

Seemingly every year, employees are asked to add more tasks to their list of responsibilities (although these tasks are not stated in their employment contracts), and every year employees don't get any pay raise, be it a cost of living adjustment or a merit increase. Because of this, most employees no longer feel that the companies success is related to their success.
Pros
Job security, flexible schedule, great 401k match
Cons
Poor pay, terrible benefits, no perks, no training, questionable management, low employee morale, high employee turnover

Perplexing
OCC Pipeline Production Supply Manager (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 13, 2017
Pipeline control center hectic atmosphere, very challenging. Flawed management model. You can learn an awful lot. Demanding business to run. The only industry I know where you can work with competitors while trying to beat them.

Air Liquide as an overall company is decent
TGCM Technician II - Offload Lead Tech (Current Employee) –  Malta, NYJune 13, 2017
Air Liquide as a company overall is a decent company to work for. Air Liquide on site at Global Foundries is not. There is a disconnect between the technicians and management.
Pros
Long weekends
Cons
Bad management

Production Operator II (Current Employee) –  Houston, TX 77045May 26, 2017
A typical day at work consist of filling, sorting, painting, maintenance, shipping and receiving gaseous cylinders. Management does not recognize their employees full potential. Compensation and advancement is a challenge.
Pros
Holidays off with pay.

Short breaks, overworked and not compensated fairly.

Carefull Going To HR
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  LouisianaMay 25, 2017
If you're reporting management to HR, have a backup job lined up. They will not have your back. With the right management it was a nice place to work. The wrong team leader ruins the whole team.
