I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for 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

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people on my team are great to work with
    Great benefits--you pay only 7 percent of benefit costs and they have a pension

    Cons

    Not much recognition
    My department is not staffed to up with the work
    You make one mistake and you can never overcome it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open and honest communication is not valued
    Leaders need to do a better job of setting expectations and giving feedback
