    Pros

    Hands on experience working in a corporate setting. The company has a growing intern program. I got to work closely with several individuals in the department. The company allows inter-departmental movement throughout one's career.

    Cons

    Not many interns in the accounting department. At company functions throughout the work day, you cannot consume alcohol when you are on the clock,

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best people work for this company. PG&E believes in growing its employees and believes in compensating them accordingly. Very good benefits and my commute from the East Bay is awesome.

    Cons

    Communication between the contracting agency and the department I was hired in seeded a little lacking. I was told one start date, but started sooner and had to end a contract I was on early. Wasn't a big deal, but not an ideal situation either.

    Pros

    Great place to work with many opportunities to branch off in different directions should you so choose. Being part of the ESC union.

    Cons

    Difficult to promote change sometimes due to the corporate hierarchy. Being part of the ESC union has both pros and cons.

    Pros

    Great management team that cares about employees and their development. Managed organization, your value to the customers is obvious and meaningful.

    Cons

    Big company that you can get lost in, not very cutting edge with technology and innovation. A lot of process that is needed for their industry.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find new methods to build out innovative technology that can break through some of the processes that are used for production.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Awesome people (co-workers), still provide great benefits and incentives compared to others. Provides tuition reimbursement. Still have a little of the good old culture that I got to know.

    Cons

    Constant changes, constant changes, constant changes,constant changes, constant changes, constant changes, constant changes, constant changes, constant changes and constant changes.

    Advice to Management

    In order to move forward and better the business process one need to stop going around in circle. In my short time with the company I have seen at least one re-org per year of my service. How can one move forward when a stop is being placed and turning it back around to do the same thing over again! Move forward and if needed do some tweaks along the way.....not turning it back around
