    I have been working at Sempra Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good steady job 7:00-3:30. Women are making a dent in the "Good old boy's club". The gas entity of Sempra shuold continue to do well.

    Cons

    A long history of racism against African American employee's. HR policies haven't been revised since the early 90's. Very top heavy in District Management. Not a bright future on the electric side of the company. The Electric side (SDG&E) could be sold or contracted out and the company will still do fine, because Natural Gas is about to take off nation wide.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should enforce what few antiquated HR policies that they have. Communication between the 9 plus districts nonexistent. Their ran like their all different companies.

    I worked at Sempra Energy

    Pros

    This is a place where people come to die. If you just want a steady paycheck until the day you retire, then this is the place to be.

    Cons

    1. When I started here in 2006, my new fellow employees made a big deal out of the fact that I have a college degree. Need I say more about the people who work here?
    2. Also, it's a rarity to find a colleague that can speak proper English.
    3. All anyone here can think about is the day they retire.
    4. Hard work, intelligence, and drive is looked upon as a threat and is immediately discouraged.
    5. Since this company is government regulated, the work ethics and culture is identical to that of city workers'.
    6. Working with people who should've been fired a long time ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. I assume this is exactly how they want it to be.
