Pros

Pay is at market, the people are friendly, hours are flexible.

Cons

Not a lot of visible corporate sponsorship of community events... rarely see NiSource or even Columbia Gas of Ohio listed as corporate sponsors. Easy to get pigeonholed into one area. You can find a lot of people here who have done the same thing for years. Outdated business practices and HR policies in comparison to other Fortune 500 companies have worked for. Making changes, but very slow to evolve...near retirement employees appear very resistant to change. Could use a little more diversity.

Advice to Management

Learn to engage employees at all levels, from the star players to the worker bees. There is talent to be developed in people at all levels.

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work until they decided to outsource several departments. The pay was good and the benefits were exceptional pre 2002 when the company was Columbia Gas. It was an employee organization which was big on interaction among employees to get the job done.

    Cons

    They demonstrated how shortsighted they can be when they outsourced several departments then recalled almost all of the departments 2 years later when they figured out how much money they were losing but got stuck with outsourcing of the IT department due to signing a 10 year contract with the outsourcing company.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your employees. Don't give in to corporate pressure.
