I have been working at Sempra Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Solid. Interesting work. Not the dull public utility type work you would expect but forefront, top thinking work. Compensation on par. 2-weeks off plus holidays. Depending on your particular manager, time can be flexible.

Cons

Getting ahead depends on who you know and timing more than on performance. Variable pay portion tied to sometimes factors outside of your control which is frustrating.

Advice to Management

Keep it going. I feel Sr Mgmt does a great job here. Be more open to promoting from within the company but maybe other disciplines - don't just promote the next guy in line.

    I have been working at Sempra Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good steady job 7:00-3:30. Women are making a dent in the "Good old boy's club". The gas entity of Sempra shuold continue to do well.

    Cons

    A long history of racism against African American employee's. HR policies haven't been revised since the early 90's. Very top heavy in District Management. Not a bright future on the electric side of the company. The Electric side (SDG&E) could be sold or contracted out and the company will still do fine, because Natural Gas is about to take off nation wide.

    Advice to Management

    They should enforce what few antiquated HR policies that they have. Communication between the 9 plus districts nonexistent. Their ran like their all different companies.

    I worked at Sempra Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very solid, established company going in many different directions means lots of diverse opportunities within one company; pays well

    Cons

    The Internship wasn't well planned out and there's somewhat of a bureaucracy to deal with

    Advice to Management

    challenge future IT interns, that's what we're there for!
