    I worked at NiSource full-time (More than a year)


    - Employee benefits are great; fantastic work-life balance
    - NiSource provides opportunities to move around the organization to get a feel for different kinds of work. Good place to get a foot in the door and then move around/up the ladder.
    - Collaboration and discussion is encouraged.


    - No formal training; training is "on-the-job."

    Advice to Management

    - Consistency in how situations are handled creates a relaxed atmosphere; if your employees do not know how you will react, they will had difficulty knowing how to work with you.
    - Leading by example
