    Pros

    Steady work for now. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Upper management is poor. Pay is below average. We've had 4 managers in 5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Better equipment. Better pay. Give us what we need to get the job done. Try to get the Galway Co-op back. They're 65% of our business here.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits and good pay.

    Cons

    Employees rotate on-call responsibilities weekly, this hinder planning events outside of work when the company is short employers within a service location. I mention this because I have shared on-call between only two employees many times throughout my time with the company.

    I have been working at Ferrellgas Partners full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ferrellgas has given me opportunities I wouldn't have had elsewhere. The educational advancements, training, support, encouragement, career advancement and wonderful fellow coworkers make my job extremely enjoyable. The benefits are affordable and easy to use (medical, dental, vision, disability, etc.). The retirement benefits are exciting with a company ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) and employer matching for 401k. The leadership team has the company going in direction the employees can support.

    Cons

    Hard to communicate to all the employees due to the company being nationwide and spread out throughout the United States.

    Advice to Management

    Keep open the good lines of communication on how Ferrellgas is doing and where we are going.

    Pros

    Benefits are good work is not very difficult. Very hard to be bored at work. Always busy and it always changes.

    Cons

    Need management with competence and understanding of daily job functions. No organization when it comes to how things are run.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the property. Building maintenance needs to be done. Streamline procedures and make sure everyone is doing them the same way starting at the manager level. Employees should have standard operating procedures in place and access to documentation. Too many cooks in the kitchen is never a good thing. Management needs to be on the same page as far as procedures go. And lastly, promote internally instead of outside hires.

    Pros

    Benefits are above average and the ESOP is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Middle-management shows favoritism towards some employees and micro-manages others. No consistency in the way they treat their "team".

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Get rid of the managers that employees complain about in departments that have frequent conflicts. Empower employees to give confidential annual reviews about their managers to upper management. If the Senior Mgmt doesn't know about the problems, they can't fix them.
