My eMy

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Washington Gas Light Company

ProsAwesome manager, fair practices, and downtown near all of the government actions. Great atmosphere and work life balance

ConsThey did not fully utilize my educational background and their salary is not competitive at all with the overall market with a graduate degree as well as the cost of living.

Job advancements

Operations Technician (Current Employee)
Springfield, VA (US)

I have been working at Washington Gas Light Company

ProsThe benifits packages are still structured extremely well and are indicative to current standards. Medical and dental are above average for area and include other insurance options. The utilities market is a very stable environment at current times for vocational workers.

ConsThe IT and upper management positions leave very little room if any fro advancement. The corporate structure reorganizes about every three to four years. This will include outsourcing with elimination of certain job titles without much notification. The chance for job training or improvement is extremely limited, leaving very little room for growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementA more progressive mentoring structure and feed back from employees that can be included in the new corprate environment would be appreciated. The need for retaining middle aged employees and advancing them over older retirement aged employees would lead to long term success as a business model and would further usless need to retrain and reorganize every few years.
