    Pros

    Great work/life balance, great people to work with. The internship program is well designed and organized.

    Cons

    Workload vary from time to time. I wish they could spend more time and effect on developing people. Not enough supervision from management.

    Advice to Management

    Create an atmosphere where top performers see a clear path to promotion, with coaching and encouragement to ensure you retain top talent and they don't abandon ship due to lack of "buddy network" or insight into career growth opportunities

    I have been working at NiSource full-time

    Pros

    NiSource is a great place to work and grow a fruitful career. From the top of the house down, I work for good people that give a damn about me and my family. Work/life balance is taken seriously. Employee safety is our number one priority.

    Cons

    Very few negatives. All companies have them. I think it is up to me to find ways to work around negative issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Our stock is doing great, the company of hitting it's numbers, and we're growing.

    Pros

    Learned new skills to take to my next position. Learned that sometimes a good thing can block the doors to a great new adventure.

    Cons

    Parking can suck during events. Expect some to work harder than others, lack of contribution is rewarded.

    I have been working at NiSource full-time

    Pros

    Excellent salary, bonuses, 401(k), vacation days available and health care benefits, which are the lowest cost I've experienced in my career. The company works hard to make the work environment safe, enjoyable and rewarding. The management truly cares about the employees and the community. Joe Hamrock is a strong leader with an excellent vision and a great implementation plan for that vision.

    I am very surprised at the amount of negativity in many of the reviews on this site for NiSource. Nothing is handed to you in life - you still need to work hard, deliver quality work and do what is expected of your job, which is how you get ahead in any career. Quality work is properly rewarded and recognized here.

    Cons

    The I/T contract with IBM does not provide us with quality support in all areas. We use the inferior Lotus Notes application and the poor IBM Lenovo laptops, which slows down productivity and efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating to the workforce and get personal face time with as many groups as you can in the offices and out in the field. That makes a big difference in employee attitudes and motivation.

    I have been working at NiSource as an intern

    Pros

    Great learning experience for someone going to school for engineering. Great company to be an intern for.

    Cons

    Needs more of a mentoring program to work with other engineers. The learning experience isn't very structured and needs more guidance from management.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more structured mentoring program that works with each department of engineers. There are many different aspects that create a very difference learning experience.
