    Pros

    They take the time need to train people properly, and are safety conscious.

    Cons

    They could do more to update equipment and trucks on a shorter rotation. This would avoid a lot of equipment break downs and time wasted on repairs etc.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to fix things or report problems.

    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits.

    Cons

    Unfortunately with a large corporation there is a big disconnect with the people. It becomes more about numbers than actual human beings. From what I've read about Costco they truly care about their employees.......not at Ferrellgas. Now it may be different for drivers, technicians, CSS's, etc....but if you are in management it's like the movie "Jerry Magure".......show me the money! So, if you are considering management with Ferrellgas, I would recommend you think twice....no make it thrice, before you jump into the hole. You will be working mega hours, this is not a 40, 50, 60 hour a week job. Try 70-80 hours a week. Forget about a family life because this job will ruin that. You have been warned........

    Advice to Management

    Don't overload your management, hire more people to provide quality of life and quality service. See ya, wouldn't want to be ya!

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime in the winter. Steady work. In my area they don't lay off driver's seasonally like lots of other propane companies do. Room for growth if you are dedicated and patient.

    Cons

    Your work schedule can vary as fat as days and hours of duty. On call rotation is tough but manageable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the drivers more.

    Pros

    I liked the people I worked with out of my office and the other offices.

    Cons

    Training, Unorganized, Pay is just above poverty, Upper management micromanages everyone, Constantly changing the expectations, No power to the field personnel to make any decisions at all.

    Advice to Management

    Put more trust in your field personnell to be able to make a decision based on the issues at hand.

    Pros

    Corporate office has a fun health and family oriented culture, relaxed dress code, great benefits. Flexibility to work different hours and work from home on occasion. This is the most technologically advanced propane company in the world. Work-life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    There is a bit of silo mentality that exists between corporate departments. Bonuses are dependent upon total company performance which hinges on cold winters and/or low product cost, warm winters with high product cost have resulted in layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Dress code is very fair . Jeans and shirt. Just no flip flops and holes in the jeans

    Cons

    No Flex in Schedule . Benefits are not very good. Pay Scale is low.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better open door policy. Higher management is not friendly. HR does not answer Questions ? They say you must go to your direct supervisor. Then when you do that they guess at the answer ????
