    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

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large organization with opportunities to move to different roles depending on qualifications and organizational needs. Incentive-based compensation. Retirement plan options effective 01/01/14.

    Cons

    Very uncertain regulatory environment. Missed merger opportunities in the past; several other combined utilities in U.S. now larger. Considerable rate pressures driven by need to upgrade infrastructure and meet regulatory mandates.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Premier Survey Results improvement
