    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    -Great location in San Francisco. -Tuition reimbursement that no one seems to take advantage of. -Up until 2013, the health care plan was very good, however, that changed. -Generous pension for people who were with the company before 2013.

    Cons

    -No respect for higher education. You will have Directors in the Company who have never been college who resent people who have graduate school degrees. -Sexist company full of older, white men who treated well-educated young women like secretaries from a bad episode of "Mad Men." However, this has to do with the demographics of the company: older white men over 50. It's been referred to as the "silver tsunami." -Ridiculously small pay raises and bad bonuses: $25 gift cards to Safeway that cause $10 to be deducted from your next paycheck? Seriously??!! - Forced ranking in performance reviews: they will throw someone under the bus even if everyone is performing. They borrowed this concept from Enron's rank and yank. -HR department can be ineffective when dealing with complaints of sexual harassment. -No flexibility with work: telecommuting is like pulling teeth. People clockwatch like nobody's business.

    Advice to Management

    Join the Year 2013. Stop running the Company like it's 1954. The internal dysfunction is apparent to people on the outside, which is why certain cities want to leave the service territory. No other investor-owned utility in the state has CCA problems.
