    I have been working at Socalgas full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    While the company has moved more towards a "corporate" position from the "employee family" feel it had 15 years ago, it is still an employee centric place with great people, good pay and advancement opportunities. Annual bonus and competitive benefits are very good as well.

    Cons

    Company is slanted in favor of engineers as would be expected. The path up is slower for other ranks or positions. Work life balance skews towards the company more as you move up (as one would expect).
