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

Pros

A relaxed environment even when there is a lot of work to be done. Great benefits. Every other Friday off, unless your project demands otherwise of course.

Cons

Pretty big divide between the different departments. PGE has a lot of offices, so every time there is a change in management, project scope, or there is a reorganization in the company it is time to move around.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong, accountable organization, clear lines of sight to goals, common alignment among teams -- everyone is rowing in the same direction. Solid development programs, pay and benefits are very competitive.

    Cons

    Nobody loves their utility company, so you need to check your ego at the door, and remember this is a regulated public utility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire your communications leaders and get a fresh start.

    Pros

    Pacific Gas and Electric has many career advancement opportunities and believes in promoting from within. They also offer great pay, good benefits, and pensions. The employees culture is one of great pride and a love for what they do. The pros far out weigh the cons.

    Cons

    Mid level management is often very short sighted and more focused on their own personal gains rather than the company's overall success. Often mid level management is woefully under qualified for the positions which they hold but because of their tenure they are allowed to remain until expiring into retirement.
