    Pros

    You learn patience... waiting for raises, promotions, anything.
    Some of the people are easy to work with mainly because you are in the same boat. Get good at dodging buses the ladder climbers try to throw you under.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to other companies of this caliber.Raises and promotions don’t come on time due to management procrastination. Overworked and under appreciated. No one takes responsibility and loves passing blame. You are just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Expect responsibility from all employees , while being responsible yourself. Protect your people first, not your promotion. Be proactive in your employees career. And for gods sake, put some product on the shelves!

    Pros

    Excellent starter company to gain experience to allow upward mobility elsewhere quickly.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity for minorities."the dead end "job is alive and well for you.
    Diversity is nonexistent and will never be enforced
    "Inherently superior" mentality displayed in management levels
    Human Resources has NO authority and does not represent the associate
    Middle management somewhat Works in fear
    Sr mgmt displays a "cowboy-like" mentality
    Upper mgmt appears to not care about the associate

    Advice to Management

    None given. It will do no good until the parent company cleans house and starts over with new leadership that are people focused.

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay. There isn't any more pros about this company other than they do have some very good employees.

    Cons

    Executives (VP) doesn't have a clue about sales in the field. The sales model they have adopted maybe fine for some industries or geographical areas but it's not a one size fits all. DM's are the soul of the company but are micro managed. All the DM's except for one, are very capable and knowledgeable to make the business decisions in their district. Too many conference calls.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micro manage so much. Let the DM's do there job. Adopt a different sales model . Fire the one DM that is untruthful, weak in the field, no empathy and is only worried about himself .

    I worked at Matheson Tri-Gas full-time

    Pros

    The company has the least red tape in the industrial gas industry due to its small size.
    Leaving the company has made me much happier.

    Cons

    The company works on a "good old boy" system. There is an extreme lack of diversity, and they do not promote or encourage it either. The company has very few operation managers holding an actual bachelor degree. The plants are run by operators who become plant managers after years of operation. Technical engineering is an after thought and outsourced if it is thought of. Operations is micro-managed by the VP. Their growth is through purchasing old plants that other companies are trying to get rid of after they calculate the percentage of profit is not worth keeping the plant. The company is Japanese backed by Nippon Sanso. Benefits are poor where it shows how little executives care about their people. Company does not offer short term disability unless you pay for it yourself. Medical and dental insurance is higher than my current employer. There is no personal life left when you work for them since the VP will call you at all hours when he thinks of questions whether important or not. All their plants are falling apart, morale is low, and the salary is low. Those with the highest salary are the recently acquired plants as they can't change their salary right away. One of their plants in TX has had a plant manger turn over rate yearly where the plant manager quits after a year. Their relocation package is light, so a lot of talent will not relocate for a Matheson opportunity. Therefore the company lacks talent. The company counts on the talent that their competitors paid for and Matheson buys the plant with the people. The talent they do have are all limited to local people that put up with Matheson since they don't want to move or lack the education or ambition for change. While their competitors can recruit and hire the best and the brightest, Matheson hires people that their competitors get rid of and have no where else to go. The company lacks ethical practices from executive on down. Corporate directives may violate your moral compass. Logistics people are known to leave for lunch at corporate head quarters and just quit, they refuse to return to the job.

    Advice to Management

    Learn business ethics and have a moral compass. Beef up your benefits and care about your employees.

    No good reason to work for a company who does not care for their employees.

    Cons

    Company cuts corners to achieve results. Violates safety standards on a normal basis. Does not follow regulations in the production of medical gases.

    Advice to Management

    Since you don't care about your employees or following safety regulations. Then please submit your resignations.

    Pros

    Benefits is pretty much it. I really can't give any better than that. I absolutely hate this job so bad!

    Cons

    It seams as if they want to fire you for everything possible. They do not care about the employees at all. There system is so far out dated that you can't do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like they are trash. Take the time to listen to your employees ideas. Every employee at my current location is looking for a new job.
