    Pros

    When I started there was a strong sense of community within the entire company. Everyone was happy to support each other.

    Cons

    Management was brought in that discouraged relationships with other departments and the focus was strict to bureaucratic processes and task lists.

    Invest in your people. Go back to what was working before the roll out, A Christmas happy hour is not the equivalent of a Christmas party.

    I worked at NiSource (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the jobs at the company are pretty flexible and actually do take into consideration a work-life balance. The ability to move around to different departments is available, but only if there is space. Work is generally pretty easy as

    Cons

    There is still an old-school mentality within the culture, as there are a lot of people there who have been there for 10+ years. You are only able to grow within the organization if there is room for you in another area.

    Majority of jobs are treated as expendable and there is no effort to retain the employees worth keeping.

    Advice to Management

    Realize who are the workers you want to retain and who you are comfortable with letting go.

    Pros

    Overall good benefits.
    A decent portion of good people

    Cons

    Advancement has nothing to do with skills.
    Considerably large culture of childish antics
    Below market pay

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop promoting people simply based on seniority and start promoting the real Talent. Put a stop to childish gossip and start cleaning house or you'll suffer further brain drain.
