    Pros

    Its a job, that's it.

    Cons

    Matheson is the worst company to work for if you expect to make a career, they would fire you if you dare to earn a good wage. This company doesn't have values, all is about money. If you are an old employee and have more than 2 weeks of vacation time, be careful, they would find a way to fire you and replace you with somebody that cost them less. Beware.

    Advice to Management

    Which management? Don't you dare to have an opinion, if you earn more than 16/h you wont last too long.

    Pros

    You get to work with some pretty fun people. However, other than that there's nothing really good about this place.

    Cons

    Horrible environment to work in. No morale. Company hires many ex cons. Very unorganized and dangerous environment to work in. Management has no clue what's going on. Tons of finger pointing. Managers reward people who tell on others rather than for hard work. Horrible pay. Back stabbing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, reward hard work, stop hiring ex cons.

    Pros

    Good benefit's but was not offered to me.

    Cons

    This company has no clue about customer service. I've been in the business for over 25 years and only 3 months with this company. I've never dealt with Matheson Tri Gas before being bought out several months back and thought they were going to be a great company to work for, but they have the wrong people in the wrong positions! Customers are dropping like flies, and they don't seem to care. I guess they figure they'll be back. A little overboard on Safety.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up people before you're wondering where all the customers have gone! Just because you buy a company doesn't mean you know everything and the employees have no clue.

    Pros

    Worked with quite a few dedicated people who tried to make things work,but company seems to hire more "useless" people than "productive" people in turn stressing out those who carry the workload. Average pay with decent vacation time, but not worth the headache.

    Cons

    Management is the biggest problem,too much favoritism!!! Work is not evenly distributed among the work force and only a handful of workers end up doing the majority of the work while the others collect a check. The drivers have a 3rd party following them , g.p.s. and trucks are governed at 62 mph and wanting to put in the in cab cameras watching all your movements. The company is looking for any reason to fire YOU and have forgotten the customer is the one that pays the bills. Every man for himself mentality with little to no support. High rate of turnover at all levels.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership of East coast/ Mid West region and THE "YES MEN" are on a power trip forcing out veteran employees who are actually carrying the workload. Management needs to pay attention to those doing the work and LISTEN to what they are telling them not just hear them and get your butt kissers to do their fair share of work or you will lose more of those who actually take pride in their job and want the company to succeed. You need to re-evaluate your attitude towards the customer because they pay your bills so to speak. Lose the mentality of wanting to look for what an employee did wrong and wanting to fire them to showing some appreciation for their accomplishments and dedication.

    Pros

    Great co workers, decent benefits. Matheson is a growing company. The benefits package is a decent one, provided it doesn't get cut down anymore.

    Cons

    Health insurance is getting worse each year, your annual cost of living raise is tied to performance evaluations so if your boss doesn't like you, you won't get one. work schedule changes about every 2 years. Management tells you to go work eslewhere if you don't like it.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to all of the workers, not just upper management.

    Pros

    The few experienced people left. Benifits aren't to bad... yet

    Cons

    Management, Management, MANAGEMENT!!! they expect the Best but don't realize to get the best (or keep the best) YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT!! instead they hire incompetent, unskilled sorry excuses of people it's like they intentionally look for the dumbest, laziest people they can find. I've put my time (years apon years) and watched this company suck the the life and everything good out of alot of great people and am looking to get out as soon as possible If you do come to work here DO NOT expect to get a raise ...EVER and lord help you if you have an accident you'll be looking for another job even if it wasn't your fault. But if your an incompetent, sorry excuse of a person or a lazy, souless person you have a great chance to be promoted to management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for the experience you have left the elite few are all that's holding your company together. You don't seem to realize we can cripple this company regardless of the "non compete agreement" you have In place Don't have kids.

    Pros

    Some people you work with will be nice people, however I would advise you to watch your back. There will be those willing to place a knife in it, because it has become company policy to pass the buck and the blame when anything goes wrong.

    Cons

    Compensation is below standard. They don't listen to the people that make them the money and do all the work. Be careful what ideas you give some people; they steal them at times to look good. Management has no clue what their doing. Training is constant and done for the purpose of terminating people if you make a mistake. Customer service is secondary always to hundreds of rules imposed by policy.

    Advice to Management

    You desperately need people persons in management, not dictators. Pay your knowledgeable people well, they are your bottom line. Hire more people to do the work; you have spread them too thin to save a buck.

    NOTHING to say about this location

    Cons

    Horibble company. They lie so much in store management. The values suck. Would not wish this job to my worst enemy. They promise you stuff and do not go through with it. Store manager is a LIER. I would have to also say that I am good friends with people that still work there and advise them to get another job becuase you will be alot happier.

    Advice to Management

    Get another job.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
