I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

Working for a public utility provides job security, and the benefits are very good. Very flexible work schedules and work/life balance.

Cons

Nobody ever leaves, which provides no career growth for younger people. Getting promoted is nearly impossible, and the amount of "process" one has to go through to get anything done is really something to marvel at.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on employee retention or your average age will always be 55.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Big name that is respected in the utility world.
    Pretty good pay and benefits. Pension potential
    Management is doing a good job of promoting from within.

    Cons

    So large that you can become a number if you don't speak up for yourself.
    Must keep yourself motivated to achieve as the workplace is aging.
    Safe job to retain, but can become repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate office is doing a good job of promoting from within. This is very important to continue to push in order to retain your best and brightest. With aging employees you need to keep your young employees around with good pay, opportunities for advancement, and recognition.
