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

    Pros

    - 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.

    Cons

    - 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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at NiSource (Merrillville, IN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Got a call a few months after a career fair after they found my resume. Came into Nisource's HQ for a brief 2 on 1 interview. Basic interview, brief introduction of the interviewers followed by 2 questions followed by 4 behavioral questions. Two of the behavioral questions were the same, just reworded. At the end they give you time to ask your questions to which I started with general questions then dove into questions about their processes and what they use for efficiency. They beat around the bush with most of my questions giving me vague answers. I would imagine they would be salty if the interviewee gave answers the same way they did.
