Good people. Mediocre management. Constant shift in direction.

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

Lots of great people committed to their jobs, customers and company. Great place for learning about energy and utilities. Good training opportunities.

Cons

Management often more focused on pleasing the level above them, rather than the people reporting to them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down and push back (gracefully) on senior management to protect your teams

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, support for volunteering

    Cons

    Dysfunctional because of several recent organizational changes as the company tries to reinvent itself in a hostile political environment. The company has significantly increased its middle and upper management bureaucratic bench-strength over the past 4 years without much improvement in profit or performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish standards for directors, managers and supervisors to collectively be more hands-on in their duties and should have better understanding of their team's activities. Hold them responsible and accountable for their performance and encourage them to empower their employees.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been here for about one year and have had no issues. They give you the overtime you want as well as the days off that you need with no harassment. There is a well developed culture between the employees.

    Cons

    When people need technology assistance, It always seems to be an emergency. Maybe management could loosen their grip on their employees a little bit so they do not feel like their life hangs in the balance with every word document.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep making positive strides and keep making the safety improvements i have seen implemented in my short time with PG&E.
