    I have been working at Ferrellgas Partners full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, family oriented, best boss, very personable all the way up to the CEO, large company with a small town feel, upper management trust their employees, employees are empowered, couldn't be happier!

    Cons

    Can be weather dependent but they are always planning ahead. Raise might not happen for a few years, if we had a bad year. Understandable though.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for creating such a great work environment. Management truly cares and listens. I love working for Ferrellgas-it's in my blood now.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, ESOP, 401k. One of the great points to working for this company is the hours of work are not strictly enforced. Many employees are also firefighters and school bus drivers and Ferrellgas will work around those hours.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes lacking. Hours are not always consistent, some days you may work 6 - 7 hours and others could be 10-12 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is important, and field positions like to be apart of the communication. Logistics needs help and there should be a greater trust in the drivers knowledge of the area and routes better system to communicate changes with the LS than a sheet of paper.
