PG&E Review

Worker (Current Employee) Sacramento, CA

ProsVery good health benefits overall, and many really talented and good people work there, but there are too many bad apples in middle management.

ConsUpper management retribution, pay lower than average, bonus system that is totally flawed and geared towards favoritism and not productivity or talent.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo much emphasis is given to how we "look" and not how people actually perform their jobs or the other good qualities that exist in the company. Too much time and talent is wasted on and power given to a middle managment with personal agendas which do not reflect PG&E's spoken and printed values. In short, they don't "walk the walk" they just "talk the talk". To their credit, many in upper management are good people and I think really try to live up to the spoken values of the company, but they are easily led astray by a few bad apples who are just playing games and trying to manipulate the company to their own benefit. PG&E preaches open and honest communication to management, but you'll be black listed if you believe it. Middle management isn't interested in talent or what you can produce, only in your agreement with them and their rewards and acknowledgement reflect that.

    Still a long way from meeting their vision: "To be the leading utility company in the U.S."

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric


    Pros: Overall, the best reasons to work at PG&E are the following (in no particular order): 1) Supportive Work/Life Balance culture; 2) Overall benefits package… Cons: PG&E remains to be hierarchical, organizational-wise, and thus, a lot of the decisions made in upper management are made in a vacuum without a lot… Advice to Senior Management: I would advise them to hire the best and brightest in the first place. Then give those people a say in how things are… More
