Pros

What I like the most working for PG&E are their benefit programs, pension plans, tuition reimbursement program, and as well provide a child center (using lottery system) for the employees. Most of the employees are very family oriented and friendly, they don't hesitate to tranfer knowledge. They have 24/7 IT support. They concern with your healty and safety at work.

Cons

They needs do more work in their Talent Connect. Seems like the process is very slow.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good, and the pay for management is average. If you didn't go to college, this is a great place to make good money, since unionized field workers often make much more than their non-union supervisors. People are generally nice and want to get along. Lots of training opportunities, volunteer opportunities and education reimbursement. Upper management is competent.

    Cons

    Don't expect to innovate here. Not much promotion from within. Highly political and bureaucratic management environment. Very hierarchical, and management expects automatic respect and deference just because of their titles, rather than earning respect through actions and leadership qualities. Mid-level management is especially poor and typically not qualified or trained for leadership. The rare, natural leaders are quickly promoted into upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Spend significant time identifying talent within your lower "management" ranks and promoting them into middle management positions. Look for well educated, intelligent individuals with a good mixture of technical expertise and leadership experience and/or potential, and give them challenging leadership roles.
