Good company, hard to move up

Financial Analyst (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsGreat people who are very friendly and more than willing to help you learn.
Interesting work in a dynamic industry.
Great work/life balance.
San Diego.

ConsVery bureaucratic culture, the company is very risk averse so they do not act on many opportunities.
Very hard to move up, HR has very strict guidelines for promotions which are based more on tenure than ability (at least at the lower levels).

Advice to Senior ManagementBe much more clear in the strategic direction of the company. Being open to anything makes it much harder for employees to know which types of opportunities to be looking for.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Staff Accountant II (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Sempra Energy


    Pros: This company is great in that it is very stable. During the economic downturn there were no lay-offs and some employees actually received raises.… Cons: This company is slow to promote employees. This is compounded by the fact that most employees never leave. Many employees have been with… Advice to Senior Management: Managers should be scroutinized more closely. If there seems to be a high turn-over rate within a department/organization there is probably a leadership problem… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
