A risk aversion, commodity company with no future insight

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsCompany's somewhat monopoly in gas business; Performing company stock.

ConsSenior management does not have the guts to invest in new technologies. The annual budget for R&D has been pathetic compared to industrial peers. Company only promotes YES men instead of talented people. Due to lack of technolgy projects, company hires many "Productivity Improvement" people who can't really solve any technical problems, but appear to be busy (having meetings) all the time. This is a typical American company that rests on existing monopoly status, waiting for others to erode its market share. This is not the type of enterprise who can lead US out of the recession through constant innovations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
