I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

Great benefits and flexibility.
Low expectations are the norm.
Good pay.

Cons

Incompetence has been institutionalized at many levels. You're almost made to feel bad for expecting too much of anyone.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that the utility is also part of the nation's Critical Infrastructure, which is under attack more than ever. You can't cut staff while adding pet projects to make buddies with the board.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    - The Benefits are excellent
    -They provide good work and life balance
    -Compensation is reasonably set, but incentives are out of reach due to company performance
    -Respectful and kind coworkers and supervisors
    -Variation in opportunites and work assignments as well as locations throughout California
    -Great personal pride being part of this company with long proud history in service area

    Cons

    -Physical offices are dreary, dirty, old, and in poor repair creating a somewhat depressing environment
    -Little to no incentive pay due to company performance as a whole
    -Heavy in Government regulation creates difficulty in agility of decision making by management
    -Part of workforce is Unionized and in most cases unmotivated to perform their duties or care about the customers they are to be serving
    -Many people, mostly on union side are hiding out and waiting for retirement, they place an undue burden on the others seeking to make PG&E the great company it can be again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must find a way to have departments respect and be willing to work with each other and even know who everyone is in the branch. Most people dont' know the others not in their own department. If possible dispatch of the union, it is a nightmare!
