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

    Pros

    The company is large enough to allow employees to explore many departments in the energy space. Employees can spend their entire career with this one company.

    Cons

    As a government regulated company, with 100 year history and large in size, decision making can be sluggish and introductions of cutting-edge technologies especially for internal operations, takes more time that with companies in other industries.
