    I have been working at Los Angeles Water and Power full-time (more than 5 years)


    Excellent broad experience and opportunities to work on cutting edge energy projects in renewable energy, smart grid, and data analytics. Career ladder is huge wether your interest is vertical or horizontal. Excellent benefits package.


    Typical government bureaucracy but the strong management knows where the good work is being done and rewards it accordingly. The city council / mayor have too much power to interfere in the long and short term decisions of the utility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should allow more engineers into the rotation program so engineers can gain broader experience.
