I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

Pros

PG&E for the most part is a very stable place to work. Good pay and flexible. Most employees take a lot of pride in their work and the company. Benefits are very good and lots of the people are great.

Cons

Difficult to have an impact if not in a leadership role. Often hard to get things accomplished due to so many decision-making layers.

    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.
