    I have been working at Washington Gas Light Company full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job security, re-branding initiative, interesting problems, lots and lots of data, work from home ability, really good 401k and healthcare benefits,

    Cons

    Career development can be slow. A lot of the company are people that have been there for 20+ years so they are not always very receptive to younger analysts challenging decisions based on data or statistics. There's a lot of data but the way in which it is organized is across various relational databases, consolidation into a cloud-based solution would be very beneficial.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more when making IT decisions. There's far too much overlap in terms of databases and analytical tools/software
