Dead Wood

Project Manager (Former Employee) San Ramon, CA

ProsGood intentions re investments governance and budget forecasting.

ConsSome under-performers continue on year after year. Managers prefer not to go through the process of letting go. This results in demotivating others and compromising on quality and safety.

Corporate priorities and focus may be misguided - primary investments should be on safety and reliability of power grid/infrastructure; and not on reporting metrics to the Public Utilities Commission.

Advice to Senior ManagementSome companies go through releasing the bottom performers every couple of years - an enterprise is only as good as its people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
