    Pros

    Onboarding experience was quick and easy. PG&E has a really great in-house agency that is on top of it- quick process + great communication. No micromanagement as long as your numbers were up.

    Cons

    Not a whole lot of interaction with other teams, very quiet work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more with teams, provide a little more diversity in roles, have more of an open door policy.

    Pros

    - An ethical well-run company well on its way toward regaining the trust of its customers.
    - The company is beset with several tall hurdles to overcome, but is dedicated to "doing the right thing" at all times.
    - The staff are professional, in general well-qualified, and extremely dedicated to delivering what is needed.

    Cons

    - Many groups have high turnover (finance/accounting, regulatory, and customer energy solutions) and are generally not focussed much on work-life balance.
    - The regulatory group has traditionally been poorly managed, especially at the manager-director level, with many "politicians" who only manage up the org chart. The best staff are hired out by their clients into the business units.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focussed and keep doing what you are currently doing.

    Pros

    a lot of work in the field is about safety of the employee and the public

    Cons

    if the employee is not focus on safety then training will prepare them.

    Advice to Management

    the employees are the heart and soul of the company, training lots of them should be given to employees everyday on their morning tailboard with a lot of emphasis on their safety and the publics concern.

    Pros

    PG&E offers the best pay hands down. The ambience at te company is really great and very team oriented. I've never felt more valued as an employee

    Cons

    there are some strange procedures on how one can move throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    I think it should be easier for an employee who is hired as a hiring Hall to move into a full time permanent position. Many times HH employees who are only just there for a little over a year and when they are dismissed the department they were apart of is left with a gap in resources that is sometimes not easily filled.
