    I have been working at Columbia Gas of Ohio full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for growth. Will find many people have been with the company for 15+ years. Lots of vacation and great benefits. Pay is also really good.

    Cons

    There is a decent amount of stress with the job, but that is to be expected with the nature of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Columbia Gas of Ohio full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company, friendly, vacation and personal holidays, lots of varied work to do, never a dull moment here

    Cons

    Need more resources to help with the work details and there are many. Steps to get thru the work can be complicated and there's many departments. I found a very long time employee who is a technician in my department that also does some training and she has helped me so much to understand the paperwork and computer programs. I don't think it is totally her job or not but she is always willing to explain details and things to me. There does not seem to be anyone else with the job of helping people understand all that a (newer) person needs to know or just answering a question on the phone so I am very lucky to have her on my side. We need a lot more of her or people who have a good background at this company and who understand the why's.

    Advice to Management

    Potential is here but it seems like way too much paperwork and details sometimes, feels like documenting every single tiny thing is wasting my education

    I worked at Columbia Gas of Ohio as an intern

    Pros

    Very considerate of employees
    Decent pay
    Really helpful at getting the interns to mesh into the gorup

    Cons

    There really isn't anything I can think of. Of course I didn't really have any vacation time but I was only an intern there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The seminars for employee to improve there work was very good in my opinion.

    Pros

    Good Pay and Vacaction Benefits,

    Cons

    Poor comunication with employees regarding the many process changes, constant restructuring. Best practices are not followed consistently throughout company resulting in employee relations being handled differently from one department to another.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to implement more checks and balances of lower management. They also need to find better ways to provide all stakeholders with information regarding internal process and policy changes.
