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

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 Management

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.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    It allows me to work on important energy issues and have a good deal of responsibility. The location is also awesome.

    Cons

    It is a fairly stagnant company in terms of overall growth. Therefore, it is hard to get promoted quickly. There is also a feeling that just putting in time makes people more qualified.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage management to provide development opportunities for young employees. It is very easy to get stuck in a role and feel pigeon holed.
