Pros

The money can hardly be beaten if you are one of the chosen ones. If you are not, you will watch the rich get richer, and the poor suck off the rich at the christmas parties to get richer. If you are at the bottom and dont do "favors" you might just want to get out of there.

Cons

dirty company with dirty politics and gross mismatches in pay. the company has the personality of drywall. if you stay there more than 10 years you will likely want to off yourself for wasting so much of your life selling something you cant even see.

Advice to Management

keep riding that wave

    Pros

    Exc. benefits and in general excellent caliber of top management

    Cons

    Difficult to move around to new or more challenging assignments or positions.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen corporate culture of maintaining strict heirachial lines of communication. Don't frown on Jr. employee of one org. within Sempra talking to manager or director of another org., as was the case during my time there. Once, IT Director reported me to my manager because I sent him an email asking a question as to best resource in his org. to get something accomplished. I was chastized for it.

    Pros

    This is a place where people come to die. If you just want a steady paycheck until the day you retire, then this is the place to be.

    Cons

    1. When I started here in 2006, my new fellow employees made a big deal out of the fact that I have a college degree. Need I say more about the people who work here?
    2. Also, it's a rarity to find a colleague that can speak proper English.
    3. All anyone here can think about is the day they retire.
    4. Hard work, intelligence, and drive is looked upon as a threat and is immediately discouraged.
    5. Since this company is government regulated, the work ethics and culture is identical to that of city workers'.
    6. Working with people who should've been fired a long time ago.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. I assume this is exactly how they want it to be.
