PG&E is an ok place to work, better if you enjoy socializing to move up.

I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

Good benefits, opportunities to move around and do different jobs, lot of good people trying to do good things. Usually a good appreciation for work life balance.

Cons

Big company, easy to get lost. Lot of people higher up are afraid to make decisions so projects can move slowly because of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Forget about shareholder values and focus on the business. Stop shaking things up just because a new high paid manager has to prove they are making changes in order to get their bonuses.

    Top-heavy management, no focus or vision

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, good work hours.

    Cons

    Too many senior management layers, too dependent on outside consultants. Poor change management practices. Too much fire-fighting on urgent issues. No planning. Bureaucracy doubles the cost of most internal work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core business. Replace board members with business leaders with innovation and vision. Officer compensation packages are obscene. Micro-managers in middle management are killing your potential.
