I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

It's meaningful, interesting work with good people. Easy to roll up your sleeves and contribute right away.

Cons

Chaotic environment. "Not enough resources" really means a lack of focus, priorities, and accountability. Environment is not very encouraging or creative.

Advice to Management

Set fewer #1 priorities, set a plan, and stick with the plan.

    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 Management

    Less paper work and more financial incentives are needed
