    Pros

    Some of the best customer service specialists in the business!!! We went above and beyond to make our customers love us!!

    Cons

    Due to winter conditions in Eastern Ky, it was sometimes difficult to convince customers to let us know BEFORE they ran out of gas...in a harsh winter it could possible take up to 2 weeks to get them their product because of the road conditions in that area. Also in a mild winter, a Seasonal employee could be out of a job long before it had been planned.

    Advice to Management

    We just keep up the great work to make our customers happy and make Ferrellgas the premiere in the Liquid Propane industry!

    Pros

    New operating model focuses on growth and customer satisfaction. The new push is resulting in better pricing for customers and allowing OM's, OS's and drivers more latitude to interact and control their customer count in their respective areas. The company offers some of the best benefit packages to include a 401K matching initiative, ESOP, educational benefits and awards to top-performers.

    Cons

    Continuous Change in company results in large management change-over. Constant change in focus can be very confusing. Customer pricing should be reflective of the area of operation and competitive with the direct competitors in that area. The annual review system is very subjective and influenced by directors, these reviews drive employee pay raises. it is very unfair to have a rating system that is rated 1 to 5 and the 5 being impossible to attain.

    Advice to Management

    Let managers manage and develop a business strategy that is current and points in the direction the company wants to go. The values, mission and goals should be reflective of this strategy. There should be programs offered to each position within the company to encourage employee retention.
