Production (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 28, 2018
Praxair is committed to safety of its employees and to customer satisfaction, however does not hold very high regard for employee workload. A typical work week consists of Monday-Saturday with every other Sunday off, which does not make for a very good work-life balance.
Pros
Decent pay, available overtime
Cons
Pay(with regards to time worked), no employee stock options

Ok job
Driver/Warehouse (Current Employee) –  Madison, WINovember 25, 2018
It’s an ok job and I’ve made many friends. I feel I have more knowledge than most of the management so it gets frustrating. Because you handle a lot of hazardous materials there is lots of training
Pros
Not micromanaged
Cons
Pay too little for what we do and know

Warehouse Lead (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZNovember 20, 2018
I am not willing to review any company that I work/have worked for. I find both reading and submitting reviews to be a waste of time as I never know who is telling the truth.

Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 18, 2018
The typical work day would consist of meetings with fellow technicians via FaceTime . Review our work orders and wrap up any paperwork . If we didn't have work orders then we would go to our customer sites and do annual inspections.
Pros
Decent pay with low stress level.
Cons
The travel time which involved customers up to 3 hrs drive time.

Engineer (Former Employee) –  Burr Ridge, ILNovember 8, 2018
Praxair is a good company. Strong safety culture, decent management, good opportunities, good compensation. Their travel policy could use some work (lots of paperwork, no credit for travel/work over weekends). I had a good time and if the travel had been better I would still be there.
Pros
Good compensation, effective management
Cons
Travel policy, some questionable customer practices

Stressfull and demanding
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Jessup, MDNovember 6, 2018
If u like long hours and low pay for the industry, this job is right up your alley. You do get most weekends off, but the amount of work per employee is very high. Not enough drivers even when fully staffed. 60hr work weeks are over rated.
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
Cut throat

Great Company
Service Technician (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IANovember 4, 2018
Awesome place to work. Great way to advance though out the company and travel around the states or oversees. Safety is number one and a great tool that you can pass on to other inside the company and outside to family and friends.

Decent starting point
Application Engineer (Former Employee) –  New Castle, PAOctober 27, 2018
Plant manager and his side kick were never at work. The technology was way behind the times. There is no capital investment in this place. When they do invest it, the project is worthless and usually directed from corporate 700 miles away. Do not count on the bonuses they offer.
Pros
Donuts on Thursday
Cons
Leadership from top down at both plants very poor.

Poor managemanet and personal safety lacking
Hazardous Material Transporter (Former Employee) –  Fife, WAOctober 23, 2018
working under the cameras and daily tracking devices, being exposed to chemicals and air particulates. The real safety is in the ones that you bring for yourself, they preach a good game, but when you call a time out then you're on there radar and then the write ups begin. You'll never be recognized for doing anything well and if an internal job opening comes, you'll never be considered. Just keep you head down and do the minimum and you'll make it.
Pros
The equipment is up to date
Cons
cameras, management, no promotional opportunities

Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Rochester, MNOctober 22, 2018
Praxair is a decent company to work for but like all businesses it has flaws. The work force within Praxair is aging which helps the younger generation move up. The benefits Praxair offers are wonderful, but the work life balance is hard. Branch Managers can expect 50+ hours a week and still be behind. Upper management stalls and does not make decisions even close to quickly.
Pros
Benefits, Salary
Cons
Work life balance is hard for parents

Great place to work, compensation is below market average
IT PROJECT MANAGER - IBM Domino Notes SME (Former Employee) –  Tonawanda, NYOctober 11, 2018
I worked at Praxair full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Praxair is willing to invest in innovative projects that are leading edge in nature. Very bright and intelligent organization.

Cons

Being paid once a month is a killer

Senior leadership may need to take more risks in mega trendy than ever taken previously. Over the years forced ranking has hurt the overall culture.

Advice to Management

Continue to work closely with the community by engaging with the Buffalo Niagara Medica Campus. By getting involved with the local start-up scene and our innovation center you can build a brand closer to the community and talent will become aware of the great things happening at Praxair.
Pros
Praxair is willing to invest in innovative projects that are leading edge in nature, Very bright and intelligent organization.
Cons
Salary is below market average, majority of employees are paid once a month, Benefits dropped sharply after CEO Steve Angel assumed control
