The worst place I ever worked

Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsNone.
The employee benefits are not even that good, stop lying to yourself. Please go work in another utility and see for yourself.

Cons1. No equality in pay across different lines of business
2. No equality in promotional opportunities
3. Poor communication amongst all levels
4. Bureaucracy makes it impossible to get things done
5. Please stop with the "do more with less non-sense". The company is not efficient enough to do more with less. How about fire some of those useless directors, then we can actually have money to hire people that can actually do the work!
6. The directors and above do not know what they are doing, please evaluate their competency and value to the company

Advice to Senior ManagementThe recent changes are not enough. The company needs to look at how, where, and when, the money is spent. If any senior executive is looking at this, please reduce the layers, why do we have VP, Sr. Dir, Dir, Sr. Mgr, Mgr, and Sup? Why is some line of business with more layer than others? What is the value of those directors that do not do anything but sit around? The best way to see who is adding value is to talk to the employees and ask them. If you ask genuinely, they will tell you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
