    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

    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 worked at Ferrellgas Partners (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    2nd largest propane company in the US

    Cons

    Company was good to me and did well while I was there. Chance to learn the service side and management daily guide lines.

    I worked at Ferrellgas Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. They really make it a point to foster a collegial atmosphere at the corporate offices; parties to celebrate good years, lots of Corporate Challenge involvement and pride, etc. On-site gym at both locations was a huge plus as well.

    Cons

    I really didn't any complaints. Ferrell has the typical cons of a 9-5 corporate job but they do a lot to counter them.

    Advice to Management

    None at this time. Propane is certainly not a high-growth industry but the C-level guys seem to being their best to grow and diversify via acquisitions.

    Pros

    The salary is negotiable and the profit sharing and retirement are a plus.

    Cons

    Large physical areas of responsibility make it difficult to manage effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Operations managers can't do it all. The 'Ferrell Way' needs revised.
