I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

the pay and benefits are excellent.there are several ways to advance your career.large service territory so in time you will be able to work in area you want.

Cons

there is no backup from supervisors.will work you in to the ground then when you make mistake they will not stand by you.this is due to the fact that upper managment has them in fear of loosing thier job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

you have a lot of good and talented people.talk to them. listen to them.you send out surveys but they never seem to amount to anything at least while i worked there.everytime we got new senior management they put in new mandates without seeing what worked and what didnt.the co preaches saftey but in certian areas such as crew size and staffing levels the dollar always came first.qne of my biggest complaints was that when we had meetings with senior managment [vps and above] when you asked question they could talk for 5 minutes and still not answer the question

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in South San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    PG&E pays well and has many open temporary contract roles available at any given time. The company is centrally located for commuters using public transportation.

    Cons

    The culture is terribly antiquated and lifeless. Employees wait to be told what to do and are not proactive or enthusiastic. I found most people to be very nice however there is no passion or energy to innovate or improve processes or the status quo.
