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

Pros

Worked at PG&E during the Smart Meter, San Bruno, and Prop 46 debacles. Encountered a corporation that was hamstrung at the headquarters, but the employees in the field are some of the best and hardest working people I've ever worked with.

Cons

Management restructures constantly. Company issues talking points then revises them weeks or months later, making representatives lose credibility. Pay and bonus structure is not that great, they only give substantial increases if you're about to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop restructuring. Improve pay for frontline representatives. Argue against policies in Sacramento and San Francisco that hurt consumers.

    Pros

    The people you work with are very dedicated and passionate about what they do. You have a chance to help a shifting and changing industry with some very innovative technologies.

    Cons

    Things can be very bureaucratic. Getting simple things done could be very cumbersome due to the budget structure and silos of different organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen actively to your employees, focus on quality and getting things right the first time.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Great people, great opportunities. PGE has been business for a long time and has provided life-time careers for many people. The average tenur is well over 20 years.

    Cons

    Business decisions often are driven by political drivers and union related support. The corporation is strong, but is struggling with an aging workforce.
