I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than a year
Pros – - Decent pay, benefits.
- Lots of churn, sometimes creates opportunities
- Seems pretty fair in terms of HR practices, focus on diversity, ergonomics, safety.
Cons – - Feels bureacratic
- Incompetence isn't punished
- Lots of hierarchy, upper mgmt doesn't feel accessible
- Lots of churn, can create continuity issues
- Slow moving.
Advice to Senior Management – Don't exactly love the place but don't hate my life either. I think one of the few things that keeps people around is the decent benefits. Beyond that, I haven't met too many people who love their job. It's about 1/10 who seem content. Same advice for any big org. Cut the fat, push out weak managers and employees. Drive to root cause of issues, stop trying to get blanket policies to solve problems, only seems to paper over the problems. Etc etc. This is more of caution to prospective employees. It's stable. You probably won't find it very exciting, unless you're in a group that constantly reorgs and its probably the wrong kind of excitement but it pays the bills and seems like more than half of the people are planning on ending their career here for the pension so don't expect anyone to rock the boat in an innovative or exciting way. Can't blame em, its just human interest and the company is structured to be a very middle of the road comfortable way to retire. If you want to get rich, come back as a contractor.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
