California classic

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsEmployees 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.

ConsRegulatory 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 Senior ManagementKeep working to integrate outside perspectives and experiences. Congrats on effective dealings with reg bodies.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
