Washington Gas Light Company Reviews
Pros – Awesome manager, fair practices, and downtown near all of the government actions. Great atmosphere and work life balance
Cons – They did not fully utilize my educational background and their salary is not competitive at all with the overall market with a graduate degree as well as the cost of living.
Pros – Hours can be flexible, ability to telecommute, you can advance your career if you prove yourself. Most people are generally nice. Downtown office is very nice and is easily accessible by public transportation.
Cons – Lots of politics and restructuring occurs in several departments. It can be difficult to plan a long term career with the constant departmental change. Leadership is not very well liked by the masses. Several leadership decisions have had a very negative impact on employee morale over the past 5 years. There is a lot of turnover in finance.
Advice to Senior Management – Consider the impact of leadership decisions on the masses. Create career opportunities for all employees, not just a chosen few.

Pros – The benifits packages are still structured extremely well and are indicative to current standards. Medical and dental are above average for area and include other insurance options. The utilities market is a very stable environment at current times for vocational workers.
Cons – The IT and upper management positions leave very little room if any fro advancement. The corporate structure reorganizes about every three to four years. This will include outsourcing with elimination of certain job titles without much notification. The chance for job training or improvement is extremely limited, leaving very little room for growth.
Advice to Senior Management – A more progressive mentoring structure and feed back from employees that can be included in the new corprate environment would be appreciated. The need for retaining middle aged employees and advancing them over older retirement aged employees would lead to long term success as a business model and would further usless need to retrain and reorganize every few years.
Pros – good benefits stable OVERALL organization
Cons – if you don't belong to the proper clique you are ALWAYS an outsider..CONSTANT "re-engineering" constant PURPOSEFUL instability.
Advice to Senior Management – let your people work.
