    Not what was advertised for Part-time

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Merrillville, IN

    ProsGreat pay and benefits for part-time work. Ability to move around within the organization if you want Full time work.

    ConsPart-time is considered 36-38 hours a week. But is advertised you could work 20-38 hours you will never only work 20 hours a week. Only very few departments offer Part-time work. Micro management is not necessary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not hold people accountable for other's actions. Honestly advertise what part-time hours are being offered. Offer more Part-time work in other departments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not bad not Good, Just a place to collect a pay check.

    Energy Resource Engineer (Current Employee) Hammond, IN

    ProsVery flexible with work schedule. It is a typically monopoly. Slow moving expect slow results. So very little stress in the workplace. Wonderful personal life work life balance.

    ConsMonopoly, they know they are not going anywhere so almost complete refusal to train employees. More along the lines of you figure it out theme. Because of this is creates a refusal to share knowledge with younger employees. If the senior staff would share there would no longer be a need for them

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more competitive. Try changing things and put some young minds at work to develop new ideas. Bussiness as usual is not going to cut it looking in the future. The world has changed and you need to change with it.

    Typical electric utility.

    Engineer (Former Employee) Chesterton, IN

    ProsMonopoly; company isn't going anywhere.

    ConsDead company; anyone young and talented has left years ago. The vast majority of older engineers are just hanging around waiting to retire. You won't get access to any monies to make a difference. They expect the world from you but don't give you the time and tools to get it done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit.
