Current Employee - IT Analyst in Fairfield, CA

Pros

Good pay, excellent benefits and that's pretty much it.

Cons

IT senior directors and middle management are completely dysfunctional. 1) No sense of accountability especially in the ISTS department where trouble tickets would sit for days and only worked on by a few dedicated employees. 2) IT Projects are never planned correctly and ends up being descoped due to lack of funding 3) Codependent relationship between Business and IT with most IT managers being pushed around by Business to meet unreasonable deadlines. 4) Contractors are King with some working for PG&E for years. Employees are expected to work unreasonable overtime and being on-call without being compensated accordingly. 5) Thinking outside the box and showing any initiative are always met with indifference and definitely no recognition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need major rethinking around accountability, developing a healthy relationship with Business and especially employee retention -- the pay and the benefits are not enough.
