Lack of room to grow
CAD Designer (Current Employee) –  Burr Ridge, ILAugust 14, 2018
Seems that positions are capped no room to grown unless you move to a different group. The plus is having the opportunity to travel and learn the process.
Pros
Work Remotely
Cons
Growth

Great place to begin my career
Accounting Specialist (Former Employee) –  Ankeny iaJuly 26, 2018
Job duties were rather segregated/streamlined - you put your time in got your work done & offered assistance where needed. Expanded my knowledge in Excel and Access once the opportunity was presented. Workplace culture was good people were friendly!

Good place to work if you are a hard worker
Cylinder Processor (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJuly 25, 2018
Daily job is repetitive but fun. Management is awesome and does what they can to help you out. Advancement is an issue but so is every where else you go. A lot of hours but guaranteed work.

Pretty bland but easy work
Line Technician (Former Employee) –  Speedway, INJuly 15, 2018
Standard schedule and paid time off are nice along with plenty of holidays. Pretty easy work just repetitive, very strict as far as standards which is good to a degree but it does get in the way when you're short handed

Enjoy working at Praxiar
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Long Beach, CAJuly 13, 2018
Always busy but learning new things everyday. Company provided training to workers so we can learned new things about the company. Interacted with different cultures at the workplace and it feels a great positive environment working there. The hardest part of the job it was working under pressure since work place was open 24/7. The greatest thing that I enjoyed there was been surround by great people who always were willing together as team work and help each other!
Pros
provided training and always promoted employees
Cons
Always very busy but learning new things everyday.

Overworked
Final Inspector/ Op-Tech (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 8, 2018
If you like having 2 days off a month this is the place to be. It's not all bad the vacation time is good... but at what cost? It's greed! Management, Safety & Engineering get weekends off because there are no issues on the weekends with any of that. RIGHT! Oh and you're expected to switch shifts every 3 months! What fun to shuffle your kids and family time around. So great.. This will be your life, forget about everything else.
Pros
Lots of work
Cons
Work over family

Cylinder loader (Current Employee) –  Lenexa, KSJune 27, 2018
It is a good job to have for starting out. The most challenging part is the weather. Whatever the weather is, you have to work in it. One time, I had to work while the tornado sirens went off.
Pros
Weekends off.
Cons
Weather

Account Receivable Representative (Former Employee) –  Trevose, PAJune 19, 2018
Praxair was a nice company to work but there was not a lot of room for advancement. They also had a very high turnover rate. Compensation definitely could have been better.

Low compensation

longer lunch breaks
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 19, 2018
having everyone there to do the jobs, always learning something nwe are different every day, Management needed to communicate better so that you wouldn't have to do there job for them. the culture was all walks of life people all seems to get along good, the hardest is understanding what the management was wanting to do for each shift on all 3 shift, Knowing that your shift did a great job every day, going home with out any complaints on your shift ,
Pros
working weekend they buy lunch

Fun people to work with
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Mesa, AZJune 10, 2018
The location I work at is a small warehouse so it is easy to get bored. However, the people are fun to work with. It is easy to move around a little in job responsibilities, if you want to learn how to do what someone else there is doing then you are allowed to - at least in the warehouse.
Pros
Overtime if you want it.
Cons
Being a small sub-division of the corp. there is almost no room for advancement.

NAIG Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Tacoma, WAJune 5, 2018
Management has become more focused on bottom line vs customer relationships. More short term vs long term focus. Also have been aging out and moving to younger employees. Benefit package not on par with other more progressive companies.
Pros
Ability to Work Independently
Cons
Management Ethics

The management is very helpful with problems and issues. When I first started they gave me ample reading materials to get me caught up to speed quickly. Everybody is very helpful when it comes to figuring out problems.
