Bad management
Production Tech II (Former Employee) –  North Haven, CTJune 11, 2019
Practically forced to work overtime. Manager would want employees to work 7 days a week. It's a very stressful at times. No matter what you do it seems like it's not good enough for them.

Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 10, 2019
A typical day at work there I would get there early to clean working area. Start making boxes for the cylinders that will ship that day.
Log in the bar codes of cylinders that would ship that day. Inventory boxes that will be need later in the week. It is a face pace job so time does go quickly. Hardest part was the only time you could sit was during lunch. On your feet all day. Managment was great got bonus when we meet are quote.

Software Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ankeny, IAJune 7, 2019
Don't expect much. Profit comes first, employees and customers come last. Way behind the curve on tech, only recently upgraded to Outlook. Management was a joke, openly black listing folks from promotion or job opportunities. HR was a joke. Benifits weren't great and they cut them back when I was there. Your coworkers are good though, even though they refuse to leave.
Pros
Set hours, decent pay.
Cons
Benifits, management, customer comes last

Facility Manager (Current Employee) –  United StatesJune 6, 2019
Your first job you get within praxair will have you pigeon holed on getting any other job unless you know someone and the buddy rule definitely applies.

Filler to Driver (Current Employee) –  Morrisville, PAJune 4, 2019
They preach safety first...but that's only as long as it doesn't effect the profit margins they have practices in place that are not policy and if you violate these practices you are thrown under the bus

Technical Inspector (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 3, 2019
Typical day at Praxair consisted of inspecting incoming and outing material. Learned a lot about the aerospace industry. Management treats workers fair. Although expecting much from under staff workers. Workplace culture is pretty fast paced. Hardest part of the job was balancing work hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing the work I did was important to the aerospace industry.
Pros
Family, friendly environment
Cons
Long work weeks

A some times high paced job with many personal responsibilities and freedoms.
Standard Plant Operator (Former Employee) –  Geneva, NYJune 3, 2019
I maintained and operated a number of air separation plants in central and western NY. I drove about 40k miles per year in this position. My personal management was always top shelf and the work culture was excellent with help always available by phone or computer. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for work. The one drawback in my position was that no job is permanent as all jobs depend on keeping the contracts with the customers in a very competitive field.
Pros
Company vehicle, flexible schedule and a ton of personal responsibilities.
Cons
On call 24/7 (but this is expected)

To many haters work here and they are not team players and they dont help other drivers
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Theodore, ALMay 26, 2019
Would be a great job if they paid right like the other plants they have our bonus wasnt right. They took away from our raise to make a little 100 dollars bonus and try to convince us that we are making more when other plants get anywhere from 250 to 350 dollars a month bonus
Pros
Its local
Cons
Not enough pay

New and interesting place to work for
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDMay 25, 2019
Customer service maintenance technician. Great starting pay, benefits, 401k, insurance and health care options, and discounts. Company provided vehicle, uniforms, tools, training, travel, education, cellphone and laptop. Interesting job with a lot of training and information to take in. Involves inspecting and servicing tanks and working with gases. Company is very big on safety and corporate has very black and white policies. Immediate manager and coworkers are good, but corporate is out of touch with most of the workforce. Would recommend for someone with maintenance experience.
Pros
Pay, vehicle, 401k, benefits, healthcare, uniforms, tools
Cons
Corporate culture, safety policies, procedures

Extremely low pay
Process Operator/ Board Operator (Current Employee) –  Norco, LAMay 18, 2019
Relaxed atmosphere but way too low on the pay scale. Good stepping stone for other plants. Praxair definitely need to increase the pay for the talent. Do NOT work here if you want respect and proper compensation. McDonald's would be better.
Pros
Relaxed atmosphere
Cons
Maintenance runs the unit instead of operations. Extremely poor pay. Management is lacking.

Rough and not in a challenging way
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 15, 2019
Praxair as a company, as a whole, is a good company to work for. The culture at PST is not as good. Lots of rushing to get things done with less care about methods or consistency of product. Lots of concern for safety of the employees, which is very good. Less concern about their workforce or quality. The company can't and won't offer competitive pay rates to bring the workforce to aerospace standards.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INApril 20, 2019
Praxair Surface Technologies is a subsidiary or Linde PLC.
Business is growing rapidly, and PST is responding successfully, but a lean workforce is forcing employees to work long hours and morale is uneven day-to-day.
Lofty monthly goals are set every month, which sets the stage for exhausting marathons every month.
Pros
Productive and hardworking team. Great people. Safety first culture.
Cons
Unwilling to bring in the headcount necessary

Truck driver
Truck Driver Class A (Current Employee) –  La Porte, TXApril 16, 2019
I like this job . Not a bad place to work. Only place that I've worked at that driver's like the job. Management will work with you and listens to what you have to say or need. You can move around the company to other positions if there is an opening after a year of service.
Pros
Good money
Cons
None
