    I have been working at Sempra Energy full-time


    Wall Street really seems to like the management team. The company operates in a stable industry with longer term asset plays, so employment is more stable here than most other industries.


    The company often overlooks internal talent and does not develop its own people. The company is filling middle manager roles with external candidates while internal candidates are overlooked. Getting promoted here is more about who you know than the skills and education you bring to the table.

    There seems to be a high level of distrust and misunderstanding between the utilities and the parent co.
