I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good work-life balance, decent pay.

Cons

While there is momentum towards pushing the company to a new (better) place, the intensely political environment, and lack of employee trust, seriously hinders progress. The decision making process is extremely dysfunctional, so implementing anything new is very difficult. The culture does not make it an enjoyable place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to sustain the company, you will need to think about how you will attract and retain young talent

    Former Contractor - Administrative Assistant in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company does something important to everyone. The people I worked with were dedicated and ethical. I joined at a time when sweeping reforms within the company were made with heavy hearts and open books.

    Cons

    When something goes wrong, the company's always on the front page of the newspaper. Even when things haven't gone wrong, it's a popular whipping boy for journalists, activists, and politicians of every stripe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you try to be "diverse" and "inclusive," but you really, seriously lay it on too thick. A little of that goes a long way.
