Pros

Exceptional employer for benefits, medical, education, holidays, and vacation. Educational opportunity excellent. You will be offered the opportunity to use your abilities and grow.

Cons

Slow moving large company. Just replaced many senior executives that were milking the money from shareholders. Management does not look at prior job skills, and you must look to join company as entry level or senior level - juniors would be well advised to movfe up the management ladder at another corporation and then apply here for parallel move.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management has very poor resource management ability. They need better tools to manage the growth pipeline and not bombarb their employees with 6 months of 10/hr a day-6 day a week overtime and then 6 months of twidling their thumbs.

    Horrible company. Has not changed since the days when Erin Brockovich revealed their true nature.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Salary, work/life balance, tuition reimbursement, and learning opportunities.There are many volunteer opportunities, and employee associations that allow employees to interact outside the normal work environment.

    Cons

    Promotions are limited or nonexistent in certain workgroups. There also appears to be favoritism towards certain individuals, and unqualfied employees are promoted to supervisory positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start focusing on gaining the trust of our customers, and less on shareholder profit. Also, there are too many layers of management, and not enough analysts who do the real work. Eliminate the excess "fat"and use these dollars to bring our technology into the 21st century.
