    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 8 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A pension if you already work there - the new work force has to go to a 401k.

    Cons

    Very poor middle management and virtually no response to the problem. PG&E has hired and promoted too many people with no supervision experience. They do not train them well - leave them to fend for themselves and the result is very poor morale among the rank and file. If you have a high-end position or technical job, there are better opportunities outside of PG&E without the headaches. If you need to learn a trade or a clerical skill, this is a better place to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institue a skip-level review. Don't turn a blind eye to employee complaints about first level supervisors and managers. These are the people who are running the Company. You need to train them and provide support. I am a support person, so I have a bird's eye view to the disfunction. There is no process to remove a Manager who has no business managing people and there are too many of them.
