    Good company. Good policies. A bit stodgy.

    I worked at Sempra Energy

    Pros

    Well-run. Professional environment. Lots of opportunity unless you work in a public affairs capacity. Brilliant people work there and there are lots of exciting changes in the energy field. If you like a stable environment, lovely office surroundings, predictable roles and expectations, this place is for you.

    Cons

    Somewhat stodgy environment. The same people run the company that came up in the utility business so they are not always open to change and the latest trends in engaging employees. The same folks will probably always be there. If you want to feel like you are working for a cutting-edge company, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in some talented fresh blood once in a while. Not just locally known figureheads for window dressing. Try a new external affairs team with people that actually have a pulse on what's happening out there. You've got all the same people from the early 80s who never go to conferences and learn anything because they are so content with their comfy jobs at Sempra.
