Review Highlights

Pros
  • Great people as far as peers and the next level of management up (in 4 reviews)

  • No room for advancement, pay isn't that great and the "raise" they give you every year is a joke - 1-3%, yeah way to keep up with that cost of living (in 3 reviews)

  • Work-life balance does not exist in this company (in 3 reviews)

    I have been working at AmeriGas full-time

    Pros

    Pros:
    1. FANTASTIC people/employees.
    2. Flat organization - there is no problem interfacing with those one, two, or three levels above you.
    3. National organization- opportunities coast-to-coast.
    4. Opportunity to work on interesting projects and suggest business strategies to your superiors.

    Cons

    Cons:
    It is true the propane industry is shrinking, although there are ample ways/other areas for growth- just look at what some competitors like NGL and FerrellGas are doing. AmeriGas will realize this soon enough and be the better for it. Yes, employees are being asked to work harder, but I am sure that is true at other public companies as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would make an effort to know as many people at the FSC as possible. They will see your leadership firsthand and the company will be the better for it.

    Pros

    good chance for promotions if you do your job right

    Cons

    Leadership leaves something to be desired. Worst part of job is having to work all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more generous with employees by cutting down on so many executive "board meetings" and such at LUXURY vacation spots like the Carribbean

    I have been working at AmeriGas as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    AmeriGas offers an extremely supportive environment, encouraging you to grow within the company and find your own path. Office culture is fun. Salary they offer is generous and the employees are are great

    Cons

    There are no cons against AmeriGas at this time. The only problem is when you are employed as a contractor - you don't get the PTO benefits (or any time off) however, you do have the option to work remotely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Good experience, my 1st job out of college. Got SAP experience and learned a lot about the company and business in general specifically pertaining to Lockbox (Accounts Receivable dept). Office culture at smaller office is good.Great people. Have a history of laying off people. Layed off the whole credit and collections dept right before my temp period was up. Good leadership.

    Cons

    Some people who came there before me were temps for as long as two years before they became permanent in June of 2014.

    I have been working at AmeriGas full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    "Right size" company allows access to c-level execs while also providing job security of being #1 player with largest resources in the industry
    Transparency through town hall meetings with CEO
    Family-friendly - 8 to 4pm schedule

    Cons

    Hard to find new areas of growth in industry that is shrinking 2-3%/yr
    Often considered the highest price provider w/o emphasizing additional value to customer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How can we find additional ways to incentivize front line customer facing workers with carrots rather than sticks?
    How can we continue to increase the "value pie" in the industry vs. focusing on capturing a larger piece of the same sized pie?
