It could have been better if I had continued working after 10+ yrs. w/company instead of quitting & starting over again.

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

PG&E has great benefits and retirement package and severance package if you were one of the unfortunate to be laid-off, as I was.

Cons

They seem to have lay-offs when you least expect it and on an ongoing basis. To trransfer seem a lot to be based on who you know and not what you know I notice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not only should they seem to notice the bad in an employee and be critical in what needs to be improved, they should make more apparent to those that do well or above expectations and compliment more, as well.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Great Benefits, opportunities for education.

    Cons

    Pay structure inflexible, HR dept is a horror story, IT is in the dark ages and over controlled. Red tape will slow you down on creating any innovated process. Office conditions prison-like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit trying to put everything into number metrics, listen to your employees and get someone in IT who operates in this decade not the last century.

    As a CSR, you are chained to your desk by your headphones

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were excellent before a new CEO was hired and challenged the union which caved and now new hires start at significantly lower wages

    Cons

    No chance to promote up to a better position. Stuck in the call center circle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to improve moral, and not treat employees like a body who fills a chair

    Disapproves of CEO
