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 Management

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

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pension, most of the actual employees want to do what's right by the customers and the company. Some of the best friends I ever made were co-workers at PG&E.

    Cons

    Highly politically charged - some departments promote friends and those who make them "look good" over people with real talent and knowledge. It's hard to get anything done at this company because of all of the political game-playing and bureaucracy - so at the end of the day most employees feel drained and frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the people that you supervise and understand their talents and strengths. Promote people with experience and proven skills over those who play the game.

    Also, upper management, stop changing the company direction every time the wind blows. Pick a practical path and stick with it. Most employees laugh at every new initiative and never take it seriously because no one ever follows through.
