Never get too comfortable - you may be out of job without much notice

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for less than a year

ProsGreat benefits, great pay, work life balance - far better than most private companies. Very culturally diverse and a clear focus on promoting women.

ConsBack door politics, constant lay-offs and re-hiring (except those laid off), poor public image, constant leadership change, nepotism, favoritism, poor management/leadership and motivated entirely by profits. Senior management is "Untouchable" and so very unapproachable.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a continuous look at your leadership and get rid of the poor performing managers. Position the company as the "employer of choice". Hire a top PR firm to clean up your public image. Begin lay offs from the top down and practice Change Management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
