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

Pros

Employees have a sense of mission, dedication to serving the customer base. The fundamentals of the company are solid and it obtains energy from hydro, coal, gas, and nuclear. Working toward integrating alternative energy sources.

Cons

Regulatory structure inhibits innovation, raises costs, but that is par for the course with regulated companies. Perhaps a bigger problem is that the company is too inbred at least in IT org. IT leadership has changed recently, but it remains to be seen if innovation follows. Change is slow and difficult for many to handle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep working to integrate outside perspectives and experiences. Congrats on effective dealings with reg bodies.

    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.
