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

Pros

Good pay, cannot complain about the wages as it was a comfortable living as long as you are not in a peon job.

Cons

Beware of certain bosses, they talk about you to your co-workers behind your back then give you a lousy review as if you did something wrong!

Advice to Management

Don't buddy up with the co-workers and discriminate against certain people for being white. You are setting yourself up for a lawsuit.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Telecommuting; salaries are good for starers or those without a degree - not so good if you are already high in the pay scale and coming in; benefits are better than some private sector, pension plan. If you are focused - good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Managers and up are jumping around with demands out of fear - not a good mid-management set up. The demands shift all over the place and take up too much of the day. Generally weak middle management. Low-balling the salaries for new hires and managers. Hard to hear you came in at top step when you didn't. Work is too focused on meeting odd measures of productivity - all for the bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Change the metrics of bonus measurements - ie: injury reporting and numeric scales that only measure a small aspect of work that employees really have no control over. The daily work gets driven by these poor scales. Pay well from the start. Too insular and averse to new ideas.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to advance within a large company environment.

    Cons

    Lots of reorganization, which can be a good thing for some positions. For others, it could mean transition out of the company.
