I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern for less than a year

Pros

-For an internship, good pay in addition to having decent, various benefits, such as 401k.
-Friendly work environment
-Steady 8-to-5 working hours.

Cons

-Was not given an office access card for a month!
-Work was too easy at times; my supervisor sometimes ran out of legitimate work for me to do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Found it a little difficult to interact with the management since they seemed so busy and occupied with other things. Could have wished to been given more direction. My direct supervisor was very good however at explaining the purpose behind the work I was given.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Got to experience doing real work and not some busy work made up for an intern.
    Traveled fairly often to various project sites to ensure that the crew were getting the parts and equipment they needed to get the job done.
    HR put on a couple of field trips and activities for inters that were fun too.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.... well some of the online safety training is quite lengthy and dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and take care of all employees - this was true in my department, but not all departments.

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

    Pros

    Excellent wages, benefits, steady employment

    Cons

    MId 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 ManagementAdvice

    Provide 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.
