    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Interesting work and opportunities to expand ones expertise.

    Cons

    Middle Management (Director/Senior Director) do not share information openly. Seems political. Senior manager level with 20+ years of service seem to act very resistant to outside hires.

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

    Pros

    Lots of places you can go in the company, both regionally and occupationally.

    Cons

    Dinosaur company. Very slow moving and behind-the-times. CPUC & IBEW limits can also make things difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start practicing what you preach. And start treating your lower-middle managers/supervisors as well as you do bargaining unit employees. And stop creating so many high up positions that layers of bureaucracy. (Sr director, director, Sr manager, manager, Jr manager...etc)

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
