Loved job, inconsistent leadership

Substation Maintenance (Former Employee)

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 8 years

ProsExcellent wages, benefits, steady employment

ConsMId level and higher management too centered on protecting own job to be effective leaders. Little reciprocation of loyalty towards subordinates. Identifying and correcting problems secondary to cya.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide genuine direction and support for solutions. Be consistent and utilize proven practices. Stop trying to reinvent the company every three years, which leads to unreasonable amounts of regulation and confusion. Attitude is more important than bureaucratic micromanagement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
