    Great place to work until the acquisition of Nicor Gas

    Director (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsOld AGL has a lot of good people that care about one another

    ConsEverything is run by Nicor now; not sure why but they rule the world; their culture is not like ours; they are hierarchal and cutthroat and scared to do their jobs; AGL had a culture of caring, teamwork and respect-Nicor has made that all different; lots of "secret societies" now

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at what made us good and go back to the basics; stop letting one part of the company rule the entire company; your really good people here have left or are looking to leave as fast as they can, however they can; management is supporting some leaders who do not have leadership skills at all-they; the company we all used to know is gone.....

    A typical utility

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Naperville, IL

    ProsWorking conditions, benefits, and salary are average or lower for a large company. Naperville office is highway friendly.

    ConsMorale is poor, most senior management is selected from within. Very bottom-line oriented company with little regard for the human resource.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more externals for senior positions to get a more talented and well-rounded team, especially critical for non-utility subsidiaries.

    Horrible

    Account Representative (Former Employee) Naperville, IL

    Prosnothing, none, nada, there are no pros to being with this organization.

    ConsConstant monitoring! They want to make sure you sale on every call. The services are cheap, and the customer will get what they pay for, the only time they react to a customers need is when they call screaming & threatening legal action. Too much stress. If you can bypass, and if you do take this job, please do not stop looking for other employment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet experience people in management roles! Stop using snicker bars to entice sales, lol, you employ adults.

    Great place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsLongevity, there are a lot of people who have been there 15 years and up. The pay is highly competitive. New opportunities in the making for the future of natural gas. The leadership team on the executive level are superb. Excellent communication from the top.

    ConsUnorganized in some departments. Supervisor staff needs additional training. You truly must know someone in order to move up. Lack of opportunities to move up to supervisory roles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo much to type. I would say in summary. Train how to manage people on the supervisor level from a supportive perspective. Train supervisors how to embrace change without reflecting the frustration of it to your team. Attempt to make more opportunities available.
