    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Pay was fair, higher than some other places. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much safety BS, Safety more important than customers. Too many conference calls and the outside sales force is micromanaged excessively.
    .
    Quick to shift blame to someone else for accidents. Management too concerned about losing their bonus $$ if the don't achieve their safety goals. Accounts Receivable department is incompetent.

    Matheson destroyed the company that they purchased

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get involved with your people. Get off the conference calls. Stop blaming others when something like an accident happens,

    Pros

    Good use of technology; company growing and adding new accounts

    Cons

    Management needs to take several courses in employee relations and motivation. Very much a zero tolerance environment where mistakes of any kind, even minor ones, are not tolerated. Result-- zero employee engagement. People just do their jobs and that is it. No one wants to move up in this company. If you want a paycheck this is a good job for it, but be ready for a pressure-cooker environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell you middle and lower management to back off an actually help the people around and under them. Quit the predatory management approach and don't play employees and departments off against each other. Show some respect to your people. Become leaders instead of managers/drill sergents.

    I have been working at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I do not know one person who is happy here. I have no good things to say about the company or management. The only pros are that I am surrounded by good people who work hard but do not get the respect they deserve.

    Cons

    They do not believe in giving raises or promotions. The managers are so inappropriate and sexist - but there is no HR to turn to. The sales force has not gotten paid their commission in over 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better.

    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Dental and Medical are good. Vacations are good. Hourly employees/supervisors/lower managers are all very good.

    Cons

    Too many to list, but I will hit the important ones.
    The COO on down to some of the directors are basically the worst collection of "leaders" I have ever seen. I am still not convinced they are just holding out to sell that part of the business. In order to hire an hourly employee, the COO must aprove of it beforehand. Extreme micromanagement. Everything must be run up to the COO before going forward.

    The engineering department is horrible. They could not design themselves out of a brown paper bag. The only sad part is that the chemicals and substances they are dealing with will kill in a second. I have no doubt in my mind that someone will get hurt if they continue to run and design things like they are.
    Anyone that could has left the company or is in the process of leaving the company.
    Watch what is promised in the job offer. A lot of what was spoken, did not come true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves. or sell the company. The rest of the industry already knows how bad you are (as a lot of former employees now work in other businesses) and they will fire you.

    I have been working at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is fair, benefits are good, Steady work

    Cons

    Micromanagement, Absurd tool kit meetings all the time, Way overboard on safety meetings, Terrible customer service, Its Management against hourly workers. Treated with disrespect and threatening manner by management. That's just 10% of the list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect and dignity. There are some of us there who have been there many years, know what we are doing, are doing above and beyond and deserve better then what this company is doing to us. Moral is bad. half the employees are looking for other jobs.

    I have been working at Matheson Tri-Gas

    Pros

    benifits are comparable. able to work at own pace for my position. Location and personnel i work with are excellent!

    Cons

    very concerned with profit, which is understandable...to many unnecessary charges to customer ie; hazmat charges, transportation and production charge, and delivery charge. unconcerned with the smaller/small town customer. Way to many safety requirements that make doing the job more stressful and cumbersome!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safety first yes! implementing unrealistic requirements that upper management does not have to deal with to complete the mission is making me looking for another job myself! Lookat the small customer paying all those charges, should be dealt with on an individual basis, they all cant afford it. The first line sales person hears about it daily!!!! Kroll needs to retire,and quit worry about making is million dollsar paycheck while the worker bees make peannuts!!!!!
