    I worked at Sempra Energy full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Solid company from a compensation and benefits standpoint. Great place to be a middle or senior manager. This company loves its managers.

    Cons

    Senior management is obsessed with senior management. As a worker bee it's very hard get noticed, especially when who your report to changes twice a year. Organization is in a perpetual state of re-org. People I worked with for 7 years stopped saying 'good morning'. Most of my department didn't even know I had left the company until two weeks after I was gone. Company is obsessed with its public image and brand, always trying to sell itself as the benevolent energy giant next door.
