Demanding job with few resources
Area Production Manager (Former Employee), Kittery, MEApril 30, 2015
Pros: Challenging work, working with large mechanical equipment and computers.
Cons: On call, working excessive hours
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.

Great people; runs too lean so work is way over capacity; stress is high and pervasive

Glad work there given the very smart professional and collaborative people.

Wish the leadership would take the high work levels and over capacity seriously as an issue that impacts safety, moral, engagement, retention.

Great company and people
Accounts Payable Manager (Former Employee), Murray Hill, NJJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: great people and a great company
Cons: lack of communication between employees and managers.
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.

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.

Cool place to work. trust no one
Medical Route Driver (Former Employee), Dallas, TXOctober 10, 2014
Pros: in early out early
Cons: the worst part of the day is going back to the shop and hear about lot #'s
Good place to work. Managers are the worst. Claim that they care at first but once your Hired Its all down hill. Managers and employees will stab you in the back and throw you under the bus...my advice just mind your business. They also think Trackcess is training..lol..management is not specific be careful

Cons: everything
I have never been treated this bad in my entire life. They don't care about anyone at all. They preach family time but when you need to help your family it's too bad. From day one they are looking to get rid of everybody. There is no career here

Horrible management. Horrible work load...
Maintenance mechanic (Former Employee), Phoenix axJuly 23, 2014
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
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...
