    I have been working at Ferrellgas Partners full-time

    Pros

    You will almost always have 40 hours a week. Great pay. Excellent benefits. Great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes your on call 24-7. Busiest time is when its the coldest and when the weather is terrible. Not much room for promotion.

    I have been working at Ferrellgas Partners full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They were in a bit of a funk, but they recently jettisoned a bad COO and have remembered to start listening to their people again instead of their spreadsheets. The change is like someone turned a light on. Nice to be employee owned as well. Love my ESOP.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but they are very focused on efficiency and profit. This can be both good if you share that outlook, but bad if you are afraid to compete.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your eyes on the customers. Do everything you can to keep them happy. And work hard to keep experienced people on your staff. Too many customers and staff driven away by an awful COO.

    Pros

    Great team environment, Change of pace everyday, great benefits including ESOP.

    Cons

    No room for advancement without relocation, winters can be very busy and no input in the out look of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking at revamping the current business model. Allow employees to become more involved in the decision making process. Also, reconsider making people relocate for a job advancement. You could potentially be passing up over qualified individuals due to their location.

    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.

    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.
