Not what it used to be...

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDecent compensation, good work/life balance. benefits are not what they used to be, but, are still above average.

ConsQuality and safe work is not valued here anymore. Speed, cost, and profit drive all facets of the business today. Gone are the days where focus on the customer, safety, and quality are top priorities. The company used to be focused on long term success not short term gains, however, today it is more about pulling every last drop out of revenue from customers to make larger profits. The general offices in SF are filled with folks running the business without any exposure of what's going on in the field. Employees used to be valued and not just tossed away every 2-3 years in a continuous cycle of reorganizations of departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementReturn to keeping a solid long term plan in place and truly keep working toward that goal. Value and listen to your experienced employees and truly care about them. Morale is terrible mostly due to constant cutbacks and reorganizations in the same departments every 2 years.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Best internship so far in my career

Gas Operations Intern (Former Employee)
San Ramon, CA

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern for less than a year
