    I worked at Philadelphia Gas Works

    Pros

    If you are an employee, PGW is probably a great place to work. It's a very relaxed atmosphere. You are required to live within the city limits, but health benefits are free. They hardly ever fire anyone, most people work there for many, many years... so do their brothers, parents, cousins, etc.

    Cons

    Management does not respect the contributions of contractors or employees, processes are written, but rarely followed.
    The buildings are not clean, with leaking roofs and frequently broken HVAC systems.
    The organization as a whole is resistant to change, in spite of statements to the contrary.
    Contractors are treated like second class citizens.

    Out of all of the entry level positions, Distribution Workers are the highest paid. New Distribution Workers are only in the position for 6 - 9 months before attending Compressor Operator school ... More
