I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

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.

    The culture is bedeviled with mistrust and suspicion fueled by Directors, and above, focused on job preservation.

    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.
