I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time (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 Management

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.

    Pros

    You have a lot of freedom to carry out your job. The pay is reasonable compared to the job market. Most everyone in the company you work with is competent and pleasant. The overall culture is to be helpful to your fellow employees.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of advancement opportunities. It is in an industry that is mature so there isn't a lot of exciting new ground to be broken. Most of the competition with other companies consists of coaxing away each other's customers. Senior management does not do a very good job of communicating a sense of direction or what is really going on in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Pay as much attention to the people down the organizational hierarchy as you pay to the people above you.

    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time

    Pros

    No one knows anything there. So you kind of have a free hand on how you want to go about your tasks.

    Cons

    Since no one knows anything, you'll have to do everything by yourself only.
    Also, lot of office politics keep happening.

    Advice to Management

    The company has potential. Hire good people. The attitude of the employee mainly comes from the attitude thrown by his reporting manager.
