    Good Company

    Planning Associate (Former Employee) Anaheim, CA

    ProsGood pay & benefits. Company is stable

    ConsAdvancement needs to be done differently but since it's based on the Union and years of service and not the most qualified

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more mentoring opportunities. Promote those who are qualified not those who brown nose.

    Great Company

    Technical Advisor II (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe company is very ethical and takes care of its employees and customers. A great deal of attention is paid ot doing the right thing. The company is stable and there are many opportunities in a variety of disciplines.

    ConsPromotions and pay should be given a more comprehensive evaluation. Often, a general impressions rather than objective performance measures are used. Lower levels of management lack the trainig they need to effectively manage their employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide competietive pay for middle management. Encourage completion of assignments before moving on (often the only way to get pay increases is to keep changing jobs). Provide comprehensive training for entry level management.

    Great and stable Company to work for.

    Senior Engineer (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsStable and family orientated. Departmental cross training opportunities.

    ConsIf you are young and ambitious it can get stale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe bulk of the employees are less than forty...The job market is becoming more diverse, SoCalGas will have fewer career employees and more employees with 2 or 3 years experience in a firm. SoCalGas MUST adapt with the times to attract and keep talent to diversify their talent pool.

    Good job with a lot of support from fun co-workers in a broad business environment

    Business Outreach Intern (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe job can take some getting used to, often with terminology, but people are always helpful and fun to work with. The job by nature gets you involved in many areas of the business, including how components are engineered, pricing, etc. The building that we worked in was beautiful, in the heart of downtown L.A. where it was easy to meet with people for lunches outside of the office.

    ConsAlways involved with government regulations, not the most thrilling subject to work around.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to push community values that SoCalGas is already so proud of.

    Region Assc engineer

    Region Associate Engineer (Current Employee) Compton, CA

    ProsGreat benefits, and on the job training. For engineering, job is fast pace and demanding from the customers.

    ConsJob Advancement isnt great. job promotions are sometimes located in facilities not within the region. job duties get to be repetitive and sometimes will get boring.

    Overall positive experience as a part-time employee

    Meter Reader (Former Employee) Downey, CA

    ProsPaid training provided. Many opportunities for advancement are available once you start working with the company. After only a few months of employment, you will be eligible to enter other branches of the company if you pass the examinations.

    ConsAs a part-time employee, it is very difficult to qualify for health benefits because you must accrue a set amount of hours over a year, but the minimum hours required to qualify is set too high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHealth benefits should be given to all part-time employees, regardless of accumulated work hours.

    It's a good company, but hard to get into

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou get a pension. You can also go anywhere in the company. Management can be tough - as in there is a ton of work to do, but the pay is worth it.

    ConsYou have twice as much work as you can do. It's super hard to get into the company. It's best to start as a contractor, meter reader, or a call center rep.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be great if you hired more people so that the ones you have don't have too much work to do.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
