    I have been working at NiSource full-time

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits, location. Pay is about in line with the local market, but certain areas tend to be less liberal with their advancement opportunities than others. flex time

    Cons

    I have seen some questionable manager decisions in my time there, and there seems to be a lot of turnover

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right people from within. Don't always look on the outside for filling meaningful roles. Pay the right people internally.

    Landing this job has been such a blessing. Wonderful coworkers, fantastic environment. It feels like working with all the relatives you like, it's very family oriented.

    It would be nice to have flex scheduling. The fear of being fired if you are late even once is quite stressful.

    Pros

    The satellite office was nimble and offices were nice.,

    Cons

    Executive management did not provide appropriate training or upward mobility to mid-level management. Most employees seemed like they trudged away at their jobs from day to day, rather than embrace and seek opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Find opportunities to build moral and improve communication
