    Great Company to work for

    Executive Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Merrillville, IN

    ProsVarious career opportunities. Tuition reimbursement. Excellent benefits. Great co-workers. CEO Bob Skaggs is an awesome leader.

    ConsWhen jobs are eliminated or moved HR doesn't seem to be much help in trying to find everyone a new job within the company. Too much knowledge and talent is being pushed out of the company. Project bonuses not given out in a fair manner -the ones doing the heaviest lifting are usually getting the least amounts..

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not hire from the outside of the company for managment positions because the employees know the company better than the outsiders. If you're looking for fresh ideas and perspectives on how to resolve issues, brainstorming instead of blamestorming will most likely give you the right answers.

    Relationship based culture

    ProsGood incentive plan. Accessible management. In the past 3 years the company had been doing very well. Collaborative environment

    ConsInconsistent management - depends on department. Some groups have very poor managers that do not see the larger picture.

    NiSource could be a good place again.

    Chief Cook and Bottle Washer (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsUsed to be a great place to work until they decided to outsource several departments. The pay was good and the benefits were exceptional pre 2002 when the company was Columbia Gas. It was an employee organization which was big on interaction among employees to get the job done.

    ConsThey demonstrated how shortsighted they can be when they outsourced several departments then recalled almost all of the departments 2 years later when they figured out how much money they were losing but got stuck with outsourcing of the IT department due to signing a 10 year contract with the outsourcing company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust in your employees. Don't give in to corporate pressure.

    mixed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCoworkers are friendly and generally descent people.

    Consmanagers are clueless and have no direction

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn how to plan. Never seen a project come in on time and on budget. Managements expectations and deadlines are not based in reality.
