Former Employee - Computer Systems Analyst Programmer in San Ramon, CA
Former Employee - Computer Systems Analyst Programmer in San Ramon, CA

Approves of CEO

Pros

job security, flexible schedules, good pay and benefits, highly qualified first- and second-tier employees, many good middle managers, progressive for its industry

Cons

Too big to change? Too big to inspire loyalty? People stay for the pay and bennies, but not for any "prestige." A challenging business model, i.e. regulated private corporation. Profit based on performance as defined by the State of California.

Advice to Management

In recent years have tried to promote two-way (up and down the hierarchy) communication. Keep working on that. Congratulations on walking the walk re. climate change. Keep it up.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Descent salary, training, and benefits if your not stuck in the most expensive areas of northern california, basically anywhere around SF

    Cons

    Upper management caters to the market more than you would expect a public utility. Upper management is greatly over paid and disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    quit your job, and stop taking rate payers hard earned money. Take a pay cut of .05% instead of cutting employees.
