    Was a good, customer focused company once, not anymore. It's sad.

    Pros

    The workforce is dedicated hard working and loyal. Benefits are good. Good knowledgable middle management and the pay checks are there every week.

    Cons

    Upper management in Matheson believes in micromanaging. It's operationally orientated and not sales or customer friendly. "if we could get rid of all these customers we could really cut our cost". The company seems to be running day to day with no long-range plans. They are more interested in paperwork, spreadsheets and self survival than they are giving personnel the tools and time to maximize their output. They cut cost in distribution to a sun. This isn't the army, it's a business with people that care and want to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to enjoy success, not punish it. It might take a change in upper management, unfortunately.

    Great benefits. Every tool you need. Company will spend money if needed. Great people. Travel if wanted. Opportunity to advance.

    Married to your facility, Lots of work placed on you, Expected cost savings annually, Upper management expects a lot of you on a weekly basis,

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the people that make you look good and take care of you. You can only cut so much fat until you get into the meat and eventually bone.

    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

    Benefits, 401K,, pier support, teamwork

    Cons

    They certainly demonstrate "what have you done for me lately." It's all about your performance now with no consideration for successful prior years. Obnoxious upper management, non-caring. No loyalty to employees unless you are one of the Manager's boys.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate employees on all aspects of the duration they have been employed. Someone not producing to what they consider a standard can be a fantastic & loyal employee in all other areas.

    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas part-time (Less than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, good insurance and benefits.but that's about the extent of the pros.

    Cons

    It's their ballgame and they lI've to change any an all the rules at any given time to make sure they get what they want. There is no accoutablility for upper management to abide by any standards or guidelines. Wouldn't be such a bad place to work if the people in the upper positions valued their employees and actually showed that value to then in some form every now and then.

    Advice to Management

    If you appreciate any of your employees I suggest you start acting like it and show them that. Otherwise your going to be replacing then with someone new who doesn't have a clue what's going on. It wouldn't take much to let your employees realize you care.

    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
