    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time

    Pros

    Depending on your group, it could be a very easy learning curb.
    Very knowledgable employees, most with decades of experience

    Cons

    They don't really put any emphasis on your educational background, just the years you've been with the company. Horrendous upper management, who won't fight for you when the time comes for a promotion. Also no direction on the future of the company

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    PG&E has great benefits and job security. I have been able to move across groups and try different roles. It is interesting to be in a company that is in the public eye.

    Cons

    Projects can move slowly. It is a large company so it can be difficult to bring in all interested parties to get to a decision and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on results. If you develop a process, make sure the process contributes towards results.
