    I worked at NiSource full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are about the only positive about NiSource. Extremely competitive health insurance and 401K match. 4 weeks of time off plus plenty of sick time

    Cons

    Management is worthless. They lied about the role in order to get people to fill their continually open positions and then can't understand why people don't want to stay in the role. The role was exactly what I told them I was not interested in, and was assured that this role was completely different. There is no on-boarding or training. You get thrown in and they hope you know enough to survive. There is zero... workload management. One person can average 20 hours of work a week while others have 50. You can ask to have it adjusted but that wont do any good. Any changes suggested to management go in one ear and out the other. Don't expect to be in a collaborative environment. It is all head down, while management creates more and more pointless work. Also, be prepared to use completely outdated technology that doesn't work.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest when hiring. Reward employees and take their feedback. There is a reason people are leaving.
