    This company does care about their employees.

    Nuclear Security Officer (Former Employee)
    Eureka, CA

    ProsPay, benefits, holiday time, all are well above par. Also, they love lateral movement and promoting from within.

    ConsIf there is an issue in a department of one of their locations, their response time leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just talk about gender equality, really shatter that glass ceiling at every level and in every department.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    One of the Best Companies to work for in San Francisco

    Marketing Manager (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsExceptionally intelligent, hard working, resourceful and extremely helpful colleagues who create a real team atmosphere.

    ConsThe workload can be overload at times with crucial deadlines to be met. Sometimes in working across the board it felt like the right hand didn't know what the left hand was doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to keep an open door policy where one is free is discuss concerns, suggestions, support needs, etc.

    Very stable environment. Committed to being safer.

    Ccsa (Current Employee)
    Rancho Cordova, CA

    ProsI have been here for about one year and have had no issues. They give you the overtime you want as well as the days off that you need with no harassment. There is a well developed culture between the employees.

    ConsWhen people need technology assistance, It always seems to be an emergency. Maybe management could loosen their grip on their employees a little bit so they do not feel like their life hangs in the balance with every word document.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep making positive strides and keep making the safety improvements i have seen implemented in my short time with PG&E.
