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

    Pros

    I have been here for about one year and have had no issues. They give you the overtime you want as well as the days off that you need with no harassment. There is a well developed culture between the employees.

    Cons

    When people need technology assistance, It always seems to be an emergency. Maybe management could loosen their grip on their employees a little bit so they do not feel like their life hangs in the balance with every word document.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making positive strides and keep making the safety improvements i have seen implemented in my short time with PG&E.
