Productive workplace but not keen on safety.
Lead Chemist (Current Employee), Geismar, LAAugust 28, 2013
Pros: free to do whatever you need.
Cons: free to do whatever you need.
Drama filled working with chemists usually started by one in particular. The management is horrible. Productivity is high. Safety is low. Compensation is low.

medical collections
Reimbursement Specialist (Former Employee), Cuyahoga Falls, OHAugust 23, 2013
Pros: rewarding to meet the company goals and mine.
Cons: collecting from indigent
I would call patients and collect on past due balances. I would also pull EOBS and explain coverage to patient or solve discrepancies. I learned how to be proactive in collecting moneys owed. Management was not really around. You did your job and went home. If issues occurred a supervisor would help you solve. I worked in a very cultural diverse area. – more... We all had our ways of collecting and it was interesting to speak with co-workers and apply some of their ideas with mine to better my skills. The hardest part was calling the people on medicare who had 0.00 money to pay the bills. I loved to help people understand their coverage and bills and problem solve. – less

productive and good work place (with the right people)
Factory Worker (Former Employee), Lincoln, ENGJuly 18, 2013
Pros: free tea or coffee
Cons: awqward colegues half the time
my time here was a long 7 years doing all kinds of things until being made redundent in july 2013, dont get me wrong im not upset about this becouse my time there was both sweet and sour...
the good times were the days i could come to work and be on shift with the people who treated me with respect not becouse i demanded or evenasked for it , just becouse – more... thats who they were, i was able to get on with my work and get the production flowing through the door with one or 2 good managers on that shift who would back u up all the way...
when on the other shift, lets just say hypocrital, disresecting, brown noser's bullys ruled the roost. – less

Project Materials Coordinator (Former Employee), 175 E Park Dr. Tonawanda, NY 14150July 18, 2013
Pros: education opportunities, wellness center

Praxair is a great company to work for. I obtained all my Project Coordinating experience through Praxair. Working on Project Teams with other professionals always gave me an opportunity to learn more about managing project teams in construction from proposal phase to construction.

Slow to adapt

High Pace and Demanding
Field Service Engineer (Former Employee), NationwideJuly 12, 2013
Pros: high tech field, interesting
Cons: management not always upfront
I enjoyed my time here as a field service engineer, they paid well and I got to travel the country. The work was demanding of your time and energy, but working around high field magnets is never dull. I was always out of town though and missed all of my families anniversaries and birthdays, holidays as well on occasion. They tried to give us time off – more... between jobs to recover and be with family, but it was not always possible. If you knew the right people it has great job security, if not, they let you go when business is slow. They laid off a bunch of us with no warning though, which was pretty shifty, and is the only problem I have with the company. – less

Assistant Warehouse Manager/Dispatcher (Former Employee), Aston, PAJuly 9, 2013
Pros: great co workers
Cons: after normal hours of work
I worked in homecare for 17+ years I knew nothing about homecare at the time so learning was a daily event for me and it continued for all those years. Started as a driver learning the basics,through time worked my way in to the warehouse where a whole new type of learning began inventory,shipping&rec. order pulling,dispatching.working with custom service,and – more... vendors. Then in to management where responsablity was priority not only for me but for the actions of the employees I supervised. The most challenging part of the job was being able to get those specially items in a timely matter. The best part of working in homecare was you never knew what the day was going to bring you from jumping in a truck to make a delivery to being in meetings all day. – less

Fast paced work environment
Warehouse Technician (Former Employee), Morrisville, PAMay 29, 2013
Pros: free lunches, sports tickets, company picnics and golf outings
Cons: insurance, long hours, and short breaks.
A typical day of work would consist of pulling orders and loading and unloading trucks. I learned all about the gases and medical devises that they have. Management was very understanding and strict as well. My co-workers were always there to give a helping hand as well as myself helping them when they needed it. The hardest part of the jkob was making – more... sure everything for the day was done and the paperwork was correct. The most enjoyable part of the job would be that it was always there the next day. – less

Great company to work for
DME Clerk (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXMay 21, 2013
Pros: benefits, pay
My work day at Praxair consisted of processing DME orders that came from different doctors offices. I learned to process these orders fast and effectively so that the patient could received their product in time, as well as what the different equipment is used for. The managemet was great as well as the co-workers.

The hardest part of the job was attending – more... to the drivers needing new work order tickets when only one customer service person was on duty. I did enjoy my co-workers and the work environment was not stressful at all. – less

“Left Company to beter myself.”
Operation Manager (Former Employee), Long Beach Ca.May 14, 2013
Pros: a wide variety of people to work with. plenty of o.t. if you want.
Cons: while integrity is talked about as a value, there are unethical situations that are tolerated, people are very aware of these situations which ultimately results in a hefty amount of skepticism, of management and hr. people are afraid to bring anything forward due to fear of retaliation
Time is flexible based on your manager. While there is always the potential to get a micro-manager, clock-watching is not the norm. You end up working more than your fair share of hours anyway.
