I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good compensation, many opportunities, good retirement, always improving safety practices and training.

Cons

Some conflicts between expected output/volume of work vs. following proper procedures. Frequent movement of management players makes it hard to get used to a routine or having someone in a leadership position who knows what they are supposed to be doing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Require a more field experience from Supervisors/Managers. Hold them in a position long enough so they can actually get past the learning curve then rate them based on their performance at that time to determine if they are a value to the company instead of the constant movement that allows less than capable managers to slip through the cracks.

    Pros

    Great people and great benefits. Lots of opportunity depending on where you work.

    Cons

    A company that makes a profit sometimes has trouble seeing the value in investing in infrastructure NOW to save MORE money LATER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in Electric Transmission system! You can't bookmark us against other utilties when you don't invest in your system the way those other utilities do.
