Pays very little and risk is great. Very dangerous work. Compensation does not make up for the danger. People are nice but very unorganized company.

not the worst place, but still not a long term career company
Contracts Manager (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAMarch 29, 2018
overall the company promotes work life balance. Not a very professional company in terms of culture (people they hire are on the less professional end of the spectrum for the most part). The environment is good if you fit in. definitely a "who you know" type of environment, as that is the only way to advance. Great temporary place to work, not good for the long term. pay is definitely to low for San Diego, which is the reason I left. Chaotic environment, which is both good and bad depending on how you play your hand. Extra compensation and recognition comes only in the form of "atta boy/atta girls" and not reflected anywhere else.
Pros
benefits are above average, friendly environment, not a lot of compeition from other companies, short of burning the building down you won't be fired
Cons
no advancement, some groups managed by unqualified people, 100% political for advancement, work accomplished means nothing, the PAY my god the PAY (super low)

Good place to work, however, job security isn't really there because they are losing contracts left and right which is a must in this field. Sad because it is a good company

Depends on department
Asset Associate (Current Employee) –  San Diego, CAAugust 6, 2017
Things can be awesome or awful at EDF depending on which department you are in and who your manager is. Somehow bad managers seem to move up the chain in this company. It's also very easy to just feel like a cog in the system here. I'd prefer a smaller company going forward.
Pros
Comped cafeteria
Cons
Competitive and corporate
