    I have been working at Philadelphia Gas Works full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Slow pace, low stress, Used to have plentiful parking (key words- used to)

    Cons

    Low pay, very inefficient, overstaffed, essentially a workfare organization. there are some very bright people here but they are greatly outnumbered by the not so bright people. and there a lot of people here, way too many to the point that it diminishes productivity. No formal telecommuting program, no wifi, but who needs it when average employees don't receive mobile tech (laptops, tablets, smartphones). Parking is hard to come by and if you don't get a spot, you very much risk getting your car broken into. Location is terrible. Facilities are abysmal- dirty, cold/hot, roaches, etc. Much could be forgiven if there was no residency requirement, but alas, there is. Another wing of the 'Philadelphia machine' - stay away.

    Advice to Management

    sell this place asap
