    A great company to work for initially, however after they were purchased by a private company they lost their focus.

    I worked at Northern Natural Gas full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The grass roots field and management employees are engaging and helpful. Benefits are middle average among their peers. Salaries, time off , and other compensation are designed to fall into the 70th percentile of peer companies.

    Cons

    The company is increasingly using automation and marketing practices to maximize income and reduce staffing of field employees. Automation in itself is a useful tool, but shouldn't be used as a tool to dilute jobs in a critically hazardous industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more receptive of recommendations from core employees and middle-management . IT and Engineering come in varying degrees of competencies.

    A company fueled by fear and not willing to listen to employees.

    I worked at Northern Natural Gas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great, capable people that work at Northern. Benefits are great. Pay is okay. Year end bonuses are a plus. Very stable company.

    Cons

    I've never worked in a more negative and diseased environment. The great people that work for this company shake in their boots when management is around and consistently gripe about how awful upper management is. It's really sad to see people who have worked at a company for 20-30 years openly state how disappointed they are with their jobs and continue to slave for this company.

    Innovation isn't welcomed and is frowned upon. Often when you would present an idea that would reduce workload and streamline procedures and operations, you'd be told work had to be completed following their rules and would often pile on extra steps onto an already burden system.

    The place is just broken and isn't ever going to be fixed under the current management system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and actually visit the people in the field and observe what they have to endure on a day to day basis versus sitting in your corporate office making judgments and new rules to follow. You are seriously making work more difficult for your workforce.
