    Pros

    Growing Company, good 401 K, ESOP, trying to get their stock up in value. Top Management seems professional and dedicated.

    Cons

    Management changes often, commission plans change annually. A little light in auto reimbursement and expenses. Do not seem to recognize the sales team as a driving force for growth which is contrary to most companies.

    Pros

    Good pay with benefits. Other than that I can't see why anyone would want to work here. I recommend going with another company.

    Cons

    Management is only concerned about the bottom line. Very little if any consideration to employees needs. They expect you to be available 24/7. No matter what. They even fired a couple of guys who had the guts to tell them that they wouldn't put up with it anymore.

    Advice to Management

    When you have good employees you should try to keep them. Just think of all the money the company spends on training etc. Whether you make more money than managers in other regions or at least appear to do so should not be a priority. Without a good foundation a house cannot stand.

    Pros

    They take the time need to train people properly, and are safety conscious.

    Cons

    They could do more to update equipment and trucks on a shorter rotation. This would avoid a lot of equipment break downs and time wasted on repairs etc.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to fix things or report problems.

    Pros

    Esop, people I worked with

    Cons

    They don't care about their employees they use you and then toss you aside when they are done with you.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at what is happening in the field. You are losing customers at an alarming rate and it isn't because of local management, it's because in small town American customers want a local provider. Ferrellgas is no longer in that category.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with wonderful people, chance to find solutions to customer problems and be creative with finding opportunities to grow. It was so much fun.

    Cons

    Betrayal of those who regularly produce while other non-producing "buddies" (you all know who you are) are retained does not feel very good. Throw everything out the window when it comes to rewarding employees who deliver on results because it doesn't matter here. The board should take a hard look at who is running the show, separate themselves from the people and look at the business. Shockingly, you can still operate above board AND still make a profit and hit your numbers. Take a look at who and what are really driving poor results and don't blame it on the weather or cost of product. I wish ethics tests were administered here. The good news is that there are so many other companies to work for that checking this one off the list of those not worth considering is the first step to your job fulfillment. Such a shame because it doesn't need to be that way.

    Advice to Management

    It is all right to resign from your personal piggy bank. Time will eventually catch up with you, whether it be sooner or later. What are you going to tell God when it comes time to answer for your actions? I know my conscious is clear.
