    Pros

    Pay is great...I have nothing else nice to say

    Cons

    Everything, I was fired after a week and a half bc I was accused of starting rumors. I was picked on and singled out bc of my skin color and rather than help me when I talked to hr about the racism they just got rid of me instead!!! On my separation they wrote violation of code of conduct and told me that after an investigation I was deemed a untrustworthy person!!! Very crappy HR HORRIBLE COMPANY

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

    Pros

    A paycheck: if you can't find anywhere else to work.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING ELSE. It's Crazy to work there. If you are in a good position just show up to work and don't say anything to anyone. Just work there, lots of backstabbing going on in there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not a good place to work.

    I worked at AGL Resources full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some really talented engineers and pipeline people. Some great people come to work there but the best and brightest leave pretty quickly.

    Cons

    The lip service to the "values" are hollow as the HR executives break the very HR rules they espouse and expect others to abide by (and that's the top executive of HR, no less).
    For a publicly traded company, I was surprised by the heavier focus on wining and dining regulators than focusing on growing employee productivity and shareholder value. NOT a truly diverse company which is a standout in the South.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold yourselves to the same standards as you do your employees, and get some women and minorities in executive positions. And get some fresh faces at the executive suite.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Everything 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 ManagementAdvice

    Look 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.....
