Pros

Decent benefits
Opportunity to set own goals and objectives

Cons

Horrible communication through out facility
Poor customer service
Arrogant culture

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get involved!! Hold managers responsible not just for safety and sales!! This facility should be the gold standard in area instead it's looked upon as a laughingstock! Department managers lack leadership skills.

    I have been working at Praxair full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not a lot of micro management, lots of overtime, and a commitment for safety

    Cons

    Lots of overtime, corporate management is constantly changing things, and the farther away you are from Tonawanda, NY, the less they care about you and your plant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many Praxair plants are on the grounds of other industrial plants. Compare what their employees in similar roles say about their company to what Praxair's employees say about Praxair. In so many words, no one will envy your position at Praxair.
