I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

-ability to learn transferrable skills
-learn how to work within matrix organization
-great benefits and reimbursement program
-product is relatable

Cons

-convoluted leadership structure with capped ceilings for growth
-doesn't foster open and honest communications within organization
-continual spin in terms of goals and priorities
-antiquated ways of thinking due to fear of public scrutiny and relationship with Commission

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to grow and develop as a company, you need to be willing to risk the backlash from the public and strive to do what is best for the customers regardless of the judgments along the way. Be willing and open to talk to the Commission. Push back when things don't make sense and stop forcing your employees to work on a project that is set up to fail from the get go.

    Pros

    Benefits, work/life balance, and reasonable salary.

    Cons

    Employee retention is almost too high and limits room for growth. Conservative company. Ship can be too big to turn if needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much focus on employee retention, rather than internal competition in order to hire and retain the best/most effective employees.
