    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Comparable salaries/wages, job movement and advancement are available, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Culture of fear and intimidation, unfortunately, is now the norm. Micromanagement is at its worst. If in management, morals and principals are to be left at home.

    Advice to Management

    CEO - Tony Earley and President - Chris Johns should not turn a blind eye or willfully condone, senior and middle management actions and behavior towards employees. This was once a great company, a real family. I had high hopes when Tony Earley came on board as CEO, that we would get back to that, but we seem to be drifting further and further away, at an alarming rate.
