    Pros

    -Great team to work with
    -Decent Pay
    -Very friendly employees in different fields in same building
    -Fast turnaround on any projects that needed help from specialists/drafters

    Cons

    -Monotonous work
    -Some work wasn't specified or very clear
    -Weekly safety meetings were sometimes very long for unneeded reasons
    -Many safety related messages that seemed unnecessary

    Advice to Management

    Stressing safety for certain employees was good, but it seemed that they went a little overboard with it. Many office workers didn't see the point of the weekly safety meetings.

    Pros

    This can be a good company to work for...if you avoid the call center. Management in this area needs a major overhaul.

    Cons

    PGE no longer hires full-time employees for their contact center. Instead, they only offer part-time hours, and the ability to be offered full-time status changes constantly. In the last 2 years, too many people have been let go for questionable reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Re-think your strategy...you're just not paying attention to what's really happening at the contact center.
