The company has gone through a lot of dramatic workforce changes in the last few years... coworkers will train you well but the management structure is still making adjustments.

Good place to work, but work life balance is subpar
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) –  TXJune 11, 2018
The company is great at the local level. People are mostly fun to work with. But the stress of the job and the feeling of being pushed to get things done is high. Hourly employees make decent wages, salaried employees are not paid enough for what they do. Recent changes to the benefits that are offered have been mostly frowned upon by the rank and file; and rightfully so in my opinion. The work life balance is way off and the mid level managers do what they can, but the leaning out of the company over the past few years has really put a strain on those willing to step up to get the job done. Air Products needs to start reinvesting in its people, otherwise it will continue to be a training ground for other, more lucrative companies.
Pros
Good people.
Cons
Pay is subpar for the amount of time put in. Work life balance is lacking.

As political as any other big company
Manager of Global Printing Services (Former Employee) –  Lehigh Valley, PAJune 11, 2018
The company culture can really change significantly with any high level management change. No real effort to back up the culture "talk" with policy "walk"

Storied Company with Opportunities
Sales (Former Employee) –  Dallas-Fort Worth, TXJune 11, 2018
Enjoyed the company and close knit atmosphere. However, it is slowly changing(typical of most companies). Still a decent company to begin career for chemical engineers or finance majors.
Pros
Stable
Cons
Too much streamlining in past few years

Moving up is a slow jog
Assistant Controller (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAJune 7, 2018
A majority of the employees have been there for a while so it will take you some time to climb the ladder. If you stay patient, you will reap the fruits of your labor.

Make numbers by getting rid off employees with no explanations
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAMay 30, 2018
You never know for how long you will be able to work... they have not regard for workers or for the quality of the work... Managers have no ethics.

People who advance are the ones who are friends with management regardless of the quality of their work.

Favoritism is part of the manager style.
Pros
paid is decent
Cons
manangers reponds to pressure above by getting rid of employees

Nice first job
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 30, 2018
Good place to get your feet wet and start a career. No one really hangs around for the long haul though. A lot of turnover. They do have a lot more attention to detail than most industrial gas companies so that is a plus.

Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAMay 22, 2018
The position I had was only rated if and when there was a negative customer experience. Long hours were expected when shifts were open due to illness and vacations.

Great place right out of school
Micro/Small Bulk Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  TexasMay 15, 2018
Under paid, and stretched thin. Great place to work out of school, but wages and benefits are such that AP is a recruiting haven for good people. The people that work here, are fantastic, but they do not promote from within enough, and the wages paid are low compared to their competition.

Bonuses and Commission paid quarterly. Waiting 3 months on a commission check is no fun for a career sales person. Though you can make good commission their is an extra tax as it is not considered commission but bonus. So the take home ends up only be about 2/3 of what it should be.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Pay, under staffed, wear too many hats

Plant Operator/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Manalapan, NJMay 11, 2018
really no room to advance if you work in the plant. Hard to get a leg up. No real support from management. It was a job and it had its use . If you want to advance go corporate

Broad range of disciplines but cutthroat management
MANAGER, GLOBAL PLAN PROCESSES (Former Employee) –  Allentown, PAApril 25, 2018
Working for Air Products was great until the management and focus changed in 2013.
Opportunities for international assignments are good - take the chance if you can.
The restructuring changed all of that and even long-standing loyal employees are vulnerable
Pros
Not many these days
Cons
Management indifferent to its employees

Plant Manager (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHApril 19, 2018
Decent enough place to work with good benefits package. It's only as rewarding as you make it, which is true for many careers. Air Products loyalty to their own employees is suspect.
Pros
Decent compensation
Cons
Too much management and wasteful spending

Stressful and Hard to Advance
Synthetic Chemist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZ 85284April 4, 2018
Originally a great start-up turned high stress. As the company progressed from start-up to Air Products to Versum, the overhead corporate pressure increased more and more. Employees are told that they make the company but then told it's all about the share holders and keeping them happy. Upper management is awful. They collect fat bonuses while promotions and bonuses suffer beneath. You literally cannot advance unless you have a PhD. Even Master's degrees have poor career advancement. If you have a bachelor's degree stay away. Beware, they have a non-compete so once you sign it be prepared for lack of growth and increasing stress!
Pros
co-workers
Cons
vacation, benefits, advancement, management
