Pros

Good benefits and opportunities to move to other departments as well as other geographical areas. The company offers great training programs.

Cons

Promotions in some departments and other levels are hard to get because most employees stay in the company +20 years to retire with pension. In some cases, it is easier for external candidates to get these positions than internal candidates.

Advice to Management

Promote from within.

    Pros

    You get to know how to play politics! Few positives otherwise.

    Cons

    Politics and seniority are everything. Your career will be dead in 3 years. No new technology tried out. Still working with Windows 7. And the pay is very average.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure where to start. Top talent will never look at PGE unless there are dramatic changes. Outsourcing is the right way to go for now.

    Pros

    The line and gas workers as well as the other folks (engineers, environmental scientists) I meet try hard to give good customer service and to do their best job on a daily basis.

    Cons

    I have met some unscrupulous managers - but I have met some awesome conscientious managers as well.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks for your customers. The State of California should be opposed sometimes, because they don't have your customers best interests at heart. I give to you the example of energy alerts, where they tell the customers to cut their power use. So people have to "suffer" because you can't tell the CPUC that you need more base load (NG power plants)? There shouldn't be blackouts because there isn't enough energy, and the customers shouldn't be paying $0.31 per kWh - the highest in the nation so that the politicians can make their green constituents feel good about themselves.
