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

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance (literally 9 to 5) for good pay It's a great career-builder to work here if you're interested in energy / cleantech / climate Everyone is super, super nice and acts like family Lots of opportunity to learn, move around, and advance your career PG&E is one of the most progressive IOUs with lots of really exciting projects in renewables, storage, demand response, EVs, etc. etc.

    Cons

    Frequent reorganizations. I found the constant anxiety that you could be laid off / lose your job to be very wearing. It's hard to get your job done if you're constantly trying to prove your worth to upper management. It also felt like there were a lot of disconnects between upper management and folks in the field. I struggled a lot to find a different position within the company. My perception (which may or may not be reality) is that jobs are often opened with a specific candidate already in mind. It's more like working for a government agency than not. I also didn't love the culture (it felt very fear-based to me) but have friends who really thrive in it. It probably just wasn't a good fit for me. On a different note, PG&E is not terribly beloved in the Bay Area. I found it tricky to read negative articles about my company every week in the Chronicle.
