    Pros

    Well-run. Professional environment. Lots of opportunity unless you work in a public affairs capacity. Brilliant people work there and there are lots of exciting changes in the energy field. If you like a stable environment, lovely office surroundings, predictable roles and expectations, this place is for you.

    Cons

    The same folks will probably always be there. If you want to feel like you are working for a cutting-edge company, this is not the place for you

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some talented fresh blood once in a while. Not just locally known figureheads for window dressing. Try a new external affairs team with people that actually have a pulse on what's happening out there.

    Pros

    Interesting work, compensation is comparable to others in this type of work. Friendly people, comfortable work enviornment.

    Cons

    Accruing vacation time is annoying. If you have x amount of weeks they should be given at the beginning of the year to use as you choose.

    Pros

    Sempra has great pay...not too much overtime and the people are motivating yet young and fun to hang out with.

    Cons

    Takes time to advance...promoting is definitely possible but it won't happen very fast so you have to put in time

    Advice to Management

    No complaints with management, very happy here and I know most of the employees would say the same

    Pros

    Sempra treats employee really well, and is willing to spend the resources to mentor and training employee to advance in their careers. There're plenty of interesting and challenging projects that can attract people like to work on cutting edge technology. There're also lots of opportunities to move within company.

    Cons

    Once you reached senior level technical position, advancement opportunities is quite limited unless you move to management

    Advice to Management

    Be well organized, self driven and persistent. The ability articulate your ideas well is definitely a plus
