A job to be weary of
Pipe Welder/Fitter (Former Employee) –  Catoosa, OKJanuary 5, 2015
The compensation is good but that's about it, the main problem here is undoubtedly sick management, now i`m speaking for one individual here, a man (whom i cant mention) admires is position more than his employees or the job at hand. This man is most likely the reason why Linde has a bad reputation and why they cant seam to get any pipe welders. To give you an idea of this individual, a fellow co-worker was requesting the shop hand to arrange some pipe on a pinwheel a little higher, at that point the boss walked up to his face and began profusely yelling at him saying "don't tell my guys what to do", the co-worker stunned said ok ill finish this pipe and than do it my self, the boss then added "if you put your hood down ill have you walked out of heir" the co-worker complied and said notably "The only reason i let you talk to me like this is because iv got a wife and kids." the boss began LAUGHING at him and made a spectacle of the man.This unprofessional boss and his character have stained Lindes reputation and robs it of potential professional employees. In my opinion i would only work there if this man (if you wish to call him such) was replaced.

Horrible management. Horrible work load...
Maintenance mechanic (Former Employee) –  Phoenix axJuly 23, 2014
Management in phx production plant is really bad and it will effect your morale before long. Outdated and poorly maintained infrastructure makes day to day maintenance a headache. You will not be able to keep up with the ever increasing list of other people's work you will be expected to do if you are a good worker, and the all hours call ins and emergency overtime putting band aids on equipment is overwhelming. They preach safety and don't follow through with anything that isn't going to be visible to osha or corporate office leaving the people working with the chemicals in danger of exposure even after they bring it to their managers attention. Not a professional or safe environment, do yourself a favor and take any other job...you will be exposed to really bad chemicals working for this company in phx...
Pros
pay
Cons
chemical exposure, horrific management, long hours and lots of call ins, safety is an issue on site, bad boys club management style where friends get promoted over more qualified workers, outdated equipment and infrastructure, unreasonable workload

Confidential document review, meeting planning, team building
Secretary to Director & Supervisor Credentialing (Former Employee) –  ClaytonApril 17, 2012
Clerical tasks, meeting planning, courier processing, customer service on multiple levels of the organization.

Collaboration and routine, importance of trust in business.

Unique team, hard working with many duties to perform.

Hardest part of the job, continuing to work on 9/11 because hospital environments do not pause--they continue to serve inspite of tragedy or holidays. Opening mail was awful after the attacks, wearing masks, checking all the international mail in a special manner.

Enjoyable part of the job--seeing the routines and the daily tasks completed which allowed doctors to practice their skills.
The team leaders were dedicated professionals and offered wise counsel and demonstrated commitment to BJC community.
Pros
meeting planning, clerical project completion, lunch on plaza
Cons
lack of flexibility, routine, difficult to move without special education

you will be treated better at mcdonalds
laborer (Former Employee) –  ohioAugust 9, 2013
They have all these policies and procedures that make it impossible to get all your work done. If you were to get hurt doing your job they would accuse you of not following proper procedure and i bet they would fire you since that is their favorite word. They claim they are a saftey conscious company but they dont practice what they preech. Its one of the most disorganized,stressful,hostile work environments i have ever seen. If you want to go to work everday with a camera looking at you all day,a gps tracker on your truck wonderingfrom if theythe are spyingthe on you,be over loaded with deliveries to the point you will work till 8pm every night the this place is right up your alley. But think twice about this place.
Pros
( the noise of crickets )
Cons
ha...where do i even begin

Linde is firing all managers
RT (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TnAugust 5, 2013
I work for Linde now but I found out that they bought lincare. It actually seems as if lincare bought them because a lot of managers are either resigning or being laid off. Also, do not work at the linde in nashville, tn the unit manager and lead therapist are horrific! The work environment is very stressful. The employees that have been there longer are cool with management and they get their way. The unit manager will not let you know if your doing a good job but will quickly count your flaws. The lead therapist and sometimes the unit manager will follow you in a pt room to watch you do your job. It just makes you worry about losing your job there and makes you feel like you never do anything right. I could go on an on.......
Pros
its a job
Cons
not worth a heart attack

think twice before working for this company
driver (Former Employee) –  MichiganJuly 27, 2013
This could be a nice place to work however "management " makes it unpleasant. They have drive cams in the trucks watching every move you make that and one mistake (everyone makes mistakes ) and they may or may not can you. They like to manage by fear as in make you fear for your job everyday. The custiomers will takeget their frfrustrations out onto the deliveruy driver because ofof the incompetance of thethe call center(or whoever takesyou the orders) not puttinga the proper order in.If you like a unorganized,stressful and being treated with no respect then this is the job for you. But think twice before going to work for this company.
Pros
pay is good health ins is good
Cons
pretty sure this little box isnt big enough

Didn't Want to Leave
Project Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OK.August 14, 2013
A typical day at work was processing purchase orders by making sure they were done correctly and entered into the computer system, obtaining proper signatures to finalize purchase requests in order to send in outgoing mail, administrative duties, expedited calls to vendors for collections and keeping up with the office equipment.

I learned to work alone at great lengths and also as a team player. I also learned to process contracts for the company.

Management was not very good. The manager nick picked every move the administrative assistants did making it very difficult to concentrate and do our best at work. This became also the hardest part of the job.

I loved the co-workers. They made the job enjoyable to work for each day. They became the most enjoyable part of the job.

Memphis will ruin your reputation.
Therapist (Former Employee) –  West , TN regionMarch 6, 2013
Nothing like working for a company that when you tell people where you work they laugh at you. Very bad reputation here. Poor managment. Lack of quality leadership. Has a lay off and laid off one of the nicest guys who was the best Therapist on the floor. Laid off several other folks and then starts running PRN jobs in the area. Run far away if this company offers you a position. Will not stand behind you and when they lay people off you only get the bonus if you sign a waiver saying you will never sue them even if they broke federal or state laws. Then once you sign it you only get half the bonus.
Cons
poorly run and operated. management are failed management from other companies.

Think Twice, the cons will outnumber the pros.
Former employee (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 12, 2013
If you are ready to work long hours in a senseless frustrating and aggravating work enviroment, this is the job for you. This company cannot keep it's most seasoned and valuable drivers because they can find the same money or More somewhere else without the stress, B.S. and 60 hours work weeks. There is no training for new drivers, just throw them in the river and see if they can swim. The corporate s@*t sa*dw*ich that is being feed to this organization is being willingly serverd to it's employees by the management.
Pros
steady paycheck, reasonable benefits.
Cons
weak incompetent management, horrendous work schedule, idiotic planning of deliveries.

Great company and people
Accounts Payable Manager (Former Employee) –  Murray Hill, NJJanuary 12, 2015
The work days were very busy and kept you on your toes. In the many years I worked there I learned a lot. They give you great learning tools, offer lots of training in many areas, have mentoring programs and have tuition reimbursement programs as well. The people you work with are professional and very vested in the well being of the company. I have made many friends that will last a life time. One of the toughest things to absord was the lack of communication between management and employees. This is an area that can use improvement. The most enjoyable part was the great people, the team building activities and the importance of safety that the company displays.
Pros
great people and a great company
Cons
lack of communication between employees and managers.

the worst place i have ever worked at.
filler (Former Employee) –  city of industry caSeptember 16, 2015
i just dont know where to start, management = a very high rate of turn over you would think that at the management level they could keep people in that position.drivers are fired for various b.s. reasons.they preach safety but are just covering thier a** so when you make a mistake you are gone. fillers are over worked arent allowed to take any breaks except lunch.every hates each other if you dont believe me be my guess.
Pros
the pay
Cons

Demanding job with few resources
Area Production Manager (Former Employee) –  Kittery, MEApril 30, 2015
The Area Production Manager required one to wear many different hats during a work day. You had too respond to calls 24/7/365 and be able to make critical decisions at any hour of the day or night.

The hardest part of this job was being on call, which affected the life balance of work & family.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to work on large mechanical equipment, computerized systems, and with fellow coworkers.
Pros
Challenging work, working with large mechanical equipment and computers.
Cons
On call, working excessive hours

Pretty Good Job
Bulk Driver (Former Employee) –  Brandon, MSNovember 17, 2015
Ok company to work for but like any other company it had it share of issues. I don't know about management at the other sites but at our site they are a good group to work for. The bad part of the job was having DriveCam and not being able to do anything without being called in the office for it.
Pros
Good Pay & Great Management
Cons
Drive Cam & working weekends!!!!
