    It was okay. Management did not work 'with' employees; not much support

    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Management was not supportive at all. Given a list of accounts and told build on it; no follow-through to see what if anything was being accomplished. Then criticized when other departments didn't complete their tasks or business was lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees; give them feedback in a constructive manner. Work 'with' not against. Be clear about objectives and when asked for help, give it.

    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.

    Pros

    Large company that operates like a small company.

    Unsettled yet with restructuring and aquisitions. Locations need to work together as one large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the bigger picture.

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

    Pros

    Good benefit package, reasonably good pay

    Cons

    Basically, they don't know much about operating retail facilities. Top heavy at corporate. Waste time w/ too many conference calls. Treat front line employees as commodities. If sales are up, hire more. If sales are down fire more. Too many tiers of management in the zones and at corporate. Corporate doesn't take the time to listen to zone employees. Like most other large corporations, it's all bottom line. Corporate lays off employees without a plan to grow sales with fewer people. One would wonder if Matheson was planning to sell off the retail portion of the business and stay with the bulk and specialty gas end of the business. Corporate has chosen to stay out of the internet business, where other successful companies(Airgas) have done very well there. E-Commerce if the wave of the future, yet Matheson chooses to ignore it here in the United States. The TIMS billing system is terrible.Unless you are very lucky, Matheson is not a place to start a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to front line employees as to what will and what will not work. Reduce the corporate work-force. Work on developing customer relationships with internal and external customers.

    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.
