Pros

Safety is priority one and the company walks the talk on this issue.

Cons

Lack of resources in crucial departments requiring technical expertise. First line supervisors do not have the necessary tools to perform their jobs (lack of resources and head count restraints).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to be more aware of the value of various departments. Few departments get the management attention and necessqary resources.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Good place to plan for retirement. No pressure on employees to perform, tasks assigned but not completed can be reassigned to contractors :-). Even Junior SW engineers supervise contractors here,

    Cons

    Management has no foresight . They hire and fire contractors at will . Employees are incompetent, designated software engineers in development cannot complete assigned tasks. Reason being they cannot adapt to changes, they have never had the time to cope up with new technologies and software languages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need of massive cleanup, fire the resilient workforce not adaptive to changes and bring in new managers on contract. Hiring FTE will not work here.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and good compensation. Large company with lots of training opportunities and you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Still can be a bit bureaucratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to streamline the decision making process and break-down silos and the number of people who have to approve a decision.
