Operations Specialist (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – November 24, 2017
I worked in the Emergency Operations Center and the supervisors were there for only one reason, find something to get you in trouble for. No help, no training, micro management to the extreme. Constant overtime and poor hours. Parking is a nightmare and if you come from another gas company, your a pariah.
Manager (Current Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 31, 2017
Excellent company to work for, job security and company is continuing to grow. Largest natural gas distribution company in PA, with work force of over 1,000 employees and we run 3 different gas systems through my gas control department. I have converted 2 new gas control systems within the original Peoples Gas within 2 years of each other and did the conversions within 6 months from start to finish.
Always a challenge moving gas within the different systems.
Constant weather changes make hitting quota's sometimes challenging.
Excellent Benefits but Company Unorganized, little Diversity
xxxxxxxxxxx (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 19, 2014
Excellent benefits but old boy culture. Most people are friendly but same old boy network as many other Pittsburgh older companies. So if you are expecting diversity and advancement this is not the place for you. They do have a lot of Indian contractors in IT and most blacks are in the lower paying jobs and in the expected field of HR.
Lack of organization across the board in all departments. One of the most unorganized companies I have ever worked for.
Parking here also sucks especially when you pay over $120 per month for a lease and on game days have to deal with people playing by your car, drinking, leaving trash and broken glass.

Trainer (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – March 10, 2014
A typical day at work was to prioritize my day. My responsibilities were to train new hires and up train current customer service representatives. I also updated training materials and created assessments. I worked well with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was the travel to the work site. Being caught is traffic at times was not pleasant. The most enjoyable was to work with the customer service representatives. I enjoy training.
Peoples Gas was a fast-growing company and placed a lot of emphasis on the Diversity initiatives
Benefits Analyst (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – September 10, 2013
While working as a Human Resources Generalist, I was able to learn various aspects of Human Resources. When I showed an initiative to learn other disciplines in Human Resources, such as Labor Relations, they did not hesitate to give me the opportunity. I had a good working relationship with both the management team and employees.
Fast moving company, good benefits and compensation
