    I have been working at Superior Propane full-time

    Pros

    The work environment has improved slightly. Pay is ok.

    Cons

    Always what you can do better, rarely is it a topic of what you did well. Strict office rules. Pay is not fair between similar roles and experience.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that roles are receiving similar pay scales... you are going to lose good employees.

    Pros

    The benefits and pension are ok.

    Cons

    Not enough man power for yard people and service techs.
    Raises are minuscule. Constantly overworked. Outdated equipment. It’s like playing in the big leagues with minor league equipment

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees happy before the president. Because in the end who cares about your budget.

    Pros

    Superior Propane is a small to mid size company. So, you will be able to see the big picture, can grow internal networks, and learn some real works.

    Cons

    1) Poor salaries and benefits in terms of market competition. Lets say, they want to hire a senior analyst but wanted to pay clerical salary
    2) Too much work load
    3) Inefficient management without even any formal education/degree. Most of their leaders came to management position through favors but they are completely garbage
    4) Dirty politics and too much favor to own people
    5) Does not support employee growth. They do not want you to develop. Because their leaders do not have actual qualification and are scared of losing their own position
    6) Micromanaging

    Advice to Management

    - Stop dirty politics and favoring your own people
    - Please support your employees with growth and development
    - Do not live with old school theories. This is 2018!

    I worked at Superior Propane full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work from home policy. Pay is ok and cheaper propane. There aren’t many pros to be honest. Stay away from this place.

    Cons

    Awful management - very old style leadership. Everyone has a chip on their shoulder and very petty , high school atmosphere. The behaviour that is allowed to happen is borderline illegal. No one is valued or made to feel valued so people are made to make others look bad to make themselves look good. Dog eat dog culture.
    If you’re smart - take your talents elsewhere. They will not show you value and respect here no matter what department you work for.
    The negative reviews here have merit. I don’t see how anyone would have a good experience here.

    I worked at Superior Propane full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pension, vacation, close to home, staff are nice

    Cons

    Very high turn over rate, upper management changes almost yearly, can't gain momentum when no leadership is around to see a single project or vision through before the next one is in their place reinventing the wheel. Disconnected senior leadership team, has no clue what the daily workers are up against. Micromanaging just leads to people not caring anymore since no matter what they produce it's never good enough. If the staff hired there are that incompetent why do you have them then?

    Advice to Management

    Stop shifting middle management around, allow them to own their position for long enough to make an impact. Start reading or attending the exit interviews as that is the only time anyone feels safe to speak the truth about what is going on in the trenches. Your lowly workers are the key to your success, which you'll notice by the employee engagement survey isn't doing so hot. Spend time in the NOC on the floor not just passing through, but look, listen and feel what is going on in there. You've lost some very valuable long term talent that just couldn't hang on another year hoping this would be the year things change.
