    I worked at Nipsco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, most coworkers are hard working. Union employees can make $100k with little effort, and I do mean LITTLE effort.

    Cons

    micro-management at plant level and above, decisions based on opinions and not what is good for the company and employees, tuition reimbursement is a joke. The longer you stay static in a position, the less likely for advancement. Too much of who you know not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that are knowledgeable about the industry, who have a college education, and trust your front line leaders. Don't hire outcasts from other utilities or cronies that bring nothing to the company's future. As for one of the most ethical companies, I totally disagree, just look and you will see...

    Pros

    Good pay and good benefits. Chances to move around in the company. Have made a lot of good connections with people in different departments.

    Cons

    Upper management very disconnected from supervisor level. Lots of favoritism and it's all about who you know. Don't offer ideas or voice concerns

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those in the field, they are the ones that see what's going on.
