    I worked at Vectren full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Please be aware in reading this, that I was the only one doing my job in my location. So to those in Vectren who read this, it's not anonymous at all. The non-management regular people are good people. Many have been with Vectren since it was created and are former employees of other companies that merged into Vectren. Some have 30+ years under their belt and their experience shows. Good medical benefits at the time I left. At times I was proud to wear a shirt with the Vectren name, for example with volunteering or working at the Vectren Dayton Air Show. Other times when the union would strike, or when customers would ask why rates were so high....it was uncomfortable to have the association. I learned a lot about the utility business while at Vectren, none of which had any impact on my actual job and I'm certain my efforts to absorb non-job specific information were not really appreciated by management.

    Cons

    Vectren appears to be letting all that experience leave as those long time employees retire. As each leaves, few if any are hired to replace them and the work is loaded onto the backs of others. For me, in Ohio, there was absolutely ZERO chance for advancement w/o moving to Evansville, IN. I would have had to do that w/o a promise of a raise or moving costs, just take the chance, relocate and then try for other jobs within the organization. In my time (over 8 years) in my position, I watched all the colleagues I had started with, grow out of our department and move off to others. I had no similar opportunity, even tho I did apply for any position that seemed like I was even vaguely qualified for in the Ohio area. After a time, I became despondent, felt unappreciated, worthless, and hopeless. Needless to say, my work suffered and while I never failed to complete a task, my performance suffered. Eventually, I was asked to leave. They were kind enough to schedule a surprise firing over the phone, a conference call with my boss and HR. I didn't get a chance to say good-bye to anyone as they were busy removing my access while I was closeted in a tiny conference room. I was escorted from the building, I never went back to get my belongings. To this day I have nightmares about my former boss and my fear of her sharp tongue. I have been strangled by fear when trying to look for a new position because I know w/o a doubt that I have no desire to go back to the same kind of job that burnt me so hard.

    Advice to Management

    We are people. Even if you can't see us most of the time. We can't work in a void. If we are considered as part of a team, we need to be treated as a member of that team. Not ostracized for calling to ask questions, or for help trying to work through a problem. When you are the only person that does what you do in the entire state of Ohio, and you have no people you can talk to about your work locally.....it is easy to suffer from loneliness and despair. Those do not make for an excited productive employee.
