I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 3 years)


The benefits are good if you are already there. The medical has changed and has very expensive co-pays and you can no longer get into the retirement plan. It is now a 401k.


They have eliminated a number of Supervisor positions in the Electric Operations and Supervisor/Manager positions in fields related to Electric Operations - even after having people move their families to California - a few months later, these folks are out of a job. These supervisors are placed in a pool and have a month to find a company job or they are laid off. This occured to at least 10 people in the North Bay right before Christmas. It is kept quiet, like a company secret. I think those in IT and other support roles seem to write good reviews - especially new employees, who may not be aware of the negativity in other areas.

Beware if you are applying for any management/supervisory roles in Electric Operations. Also, this group is a really negative group to work for. The Directors and higher are extrememly condescending and rude to their management subordinates. The stress level is extreme. I can't reccomend the company after watching what happened this past December. Next are the Clerical jobs - those are being "consolodated to Fresno." That means more lay-offs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more positive. Discipline is a rediculous way to manage a business. There is no real appreciation for management employees and that is why the internal candidates are hard to find. I have never seen so much abuse and nastiness toward management subordinates in any other company.
