    I worked at NiSource as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Positive work environment, Intern events were interesting and educational
    Lots of company training available
    Strong commitment to ethics and safety

    Cons

    It is a cube farm, but some more senior positions get better cubes with doors. Offices are mostly for department directors.
    Doesn't seem to be a lot of room for growth in your position
    Positive growth and change seems to take a while

    Advice to Management

    Either structure the intern program as a whole more, or give advice to managers to detail more specifically their expectations. Be more open to changing processes and policies. Many things I noticed were very inefficient and everyone agreed, yet said it couldn't be changed just ...because.
