    Pros

    Great people, good management, there is always something happening at the company and people are encouraging here

    Cons

    sometimes days can be slow, or if a event or disaster is happening it's hard to get a hold of upper management making it difficult to complete tasks that require approval

    Pros

    Great place to work, people are extremely nice. They are really making sure that you have all the held you need to be successful in your position. If you are a team player.. you will fit right in!

    Cons

    A lot of process and paperwork, but in a sense everything needs to be documented to ensure process are followed and that safety is at the essence of every project

    Advice to Management

    work with your team, get feedback form the actual people that do the work before implementing new processes. That will surely avoid confusion.

    This is not really a Con, just the other side of the coin ... PG&e is a big established organization and in these types of organizations things don't happen quickly.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pension plan, tuition reimbursement . Lots of opportunities to seek different positions within the company.

    Cons

    Company is currently facing some challenges due to utility regulations. New Management and leadership create veryb stressful environments with unreasonable deadlines .

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect. Give credit to employees with experience . Bringing new leadership from outside with no utility experience is not the answer.

    Pros

    PG&E has a world class team of employees. They are some of the best engineers, project managers, analyst, and support folks in the business and working with them was a pleasure. They have a great benefits package and positions available in both major cities and beautiful wild areas in central and northern California. Pretty much anywhere you want to work within the central and northern California area has positions available.

    Cons

    PG&E is headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, which is a very expensive area to live, most of the upper management positions are located in San Francisco.

    Advice to Management

    Save everyone some money and decentralize out of the Bay Area!
