I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Pretty laid back, people are helpful and genuinely interested in helping if someone has a question. A lot of them have incredible knowledge since they've been around from the days of the main frame and when systems were being built

Cons

Too much paper work, too many processes. It's also far too top heavy and too many people supervising and not enough people doing work. Also, there are a budget issue and some people in supervisory positions mainly because they have been there for a long time and not because of any actual skill set.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less paper work and more financial incentives are needed
