A lot of talented people hopelessly mis- and over managed.

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Talented people and a lot of resources. Good IT infrastructure, portable to about any location. Friendly on an individual level.

Cons

The company purports to be into safety but the executive leadership doesn't pay for it--they would rather hire lawyers. The IT governance is super complicated and over the top. Just getting a project moving requires so much overhead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get real about protecting employees and citizens. Cut the internal bureaucracy by 80%--keep the solid technical people and project management.

    Pros

    Stable company with great benefits.
    Many long time employees are getting ready to retire which opens up opportunities.

    Cons

    Implementing change is like moving the Titanic.
    It in this culture they often move dead wood rather than cut it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. If you want open and honest communication, be prepared to listen to it.
