    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Benefits include pension plan, but you must work here for 5 years first to be eligible. Salary seems decent.

    Cons

    Very old style thinking and slow to adapt and implement new processes and technologies; nepotism still exists here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way too many layers to get decision making done and unfortunately, big decisions aren't shared with everyone to contribute which leads to poor decision making; senior management should be more in tune with the day to day operations and tasks of their employees

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