    Pros

    Work-life balance. Lot of nice people. Decent benefits. Bonuses are good some years.

    Cons

    Person after person starts out eager and excited and gets that beat out of them the first year. People feel trapped and miserable. They are terrified to make the smallest decision. Micromanagement. Bullying under guise of performance standards. No career advancement. The general meanness that results from all the above.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers, too little leadership.

    Our HR department (hiring process, promotion process, overall prof

    Advice to Management

    We as a company need to work on follow through. There have been multiple projects, initiatives, and other business objectives that do a good job getting off the ground, however somewhere along the line something gets lost and it falls flat. It ultimately leaves employees with a "here we go again" attitude that restricts buy in and hurts morale.

    There needs to be an overhaul of our Benefits package to better match what NiSource claims to be their values. For example, the fact that we have no formal Maternity or Paternity policy in 2019 is egregious.
