    Former Employee - Gas Controller in Evansville, IN (US)

    I worked at Vectren full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Stable company. Good revenue from regulated and unregulated businesses.

    Cons

    Vectren has the highest rates in Indiana, and they are despised for it. I was demoted by my manager with no discussion or explanation. Later i was fired after almost 8 years for trumped up nonsense, because i was unable to please my new supervisor. They are cold and ruthless. Avoid the Gas Control Center like the plague!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Complete restructure from executive management down.
