    Pros

    Very large company with a lot of room for growth. They pay well and offer a lot of benefits to employees and their families. They work with you to help you meet your career goals. They seem to promote from within to make room for outside hires. Because of the size of the company do not give up because getting turned down by one department does not end it for you. Keep applying.

    Cons

    They make payroll on a monthly basis. This will take some adjusting for those of us who are used to getting paid more frequently. Corporate office in San Francisco so traffic will suck badly. Also parking is not an option unless you want to burn a lot of gas, waste most of it in traffic, and pay crazy money for parking.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
