    I have been working at Sempra Energy as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I can't say much about reasons to work here unless the team and team members and manager you are assigned to are interacting with you about work and also how you are doing?

    Cons

    The team i was assigned had very poor project management, they just take their resources for granted. Even after letting them know of your concerns they are still at their own things not even bothering about your issue. And i thought managers were supposed to be good with their team or at least formally introduce themselves. Which in my case was not so. And Wanted to share a particular thing about this team member i was working with, who by the way is one of the most rude and unprofessional people i have come across. All they wanted is just to work according to their norms and not even bothered about our inputs. I would warn people about this person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please interact with each and everyone of your employee, be it your own or a contractor. If not you are going to get a lot of negative remarks.

    I worked at Sempra Energy

    Pros

    The pay is high and generally it's a stable, secure place to work.

    Cons

    Senior management is completely out of touch with the employees. It's extremely hierarchial and senior management won't interact with anyone that's not at their level. The division between the employees and management is further exasperated by the fact that they have drivers, executive chefs and most don't even ride the elevators with employees. The company is in the middle of a reputation management initiative to improve their reputation with the community, employees and others and the whole thing is a joke because senior managment doesn't even care about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, recognize their hard work and share information!

    I have been working at Sempra Energy

    Pros

    Well i would hae to say that the pay and the bonuses are one reason to work for this company. IN all honesty i have only been there for 3 months but i think the biggest problem i see is lack of communication from managment to their employees. It is also very frustrating because the current manger in our department has no clue on how to run a department, so there is no structure.

    Cons

    incompetent managers and lack of communication

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that have some experience with Managing individuals
