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

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

    Company culture is friendly, respectful with safety at the top of the company values. Learning and work life balance is encouraged and supported. The company is generous to the community and is considered a leader in environmental initiatives.

    Cons

    Too many processes, management layers and politics. Due to the regulated nature of the utility industry, the company is compliance driven which inhibits innovation. Creative talent and technology frontrunners will find this company running at a "slow and sure" pace. Project or products take a very long time to get approved because the company is highly scrutinized by the public.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help new hires navigate through the politics and gain access to tribal knowledge so they can succeed in their jobs and help the company achieve its goals.

    Pros

    Opportunities in many functional areas including rotational opportunities. Opportunities to work on many emerging areas such as Solar Power, SmartGrid, Environmental Protection (GHG/cap and trade) just to name a few. New leaderships attracting industry leaders. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Reactive rather than pro-active because of the current regulatory environment. Negative media coverage can be demoralizing.
