    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Main office at Beale between Market and Mission has great access for public transit. Good location for lunch time errands.

    Cons

    Long time employees (20+ years) are entitled and arrogant, and don't have the skills for that behavior. Difficult to get training. Management doesn't care how bad the work environment is. HR is totally useless.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can work hard and get some I repeat some opportunities. It is just an okay place to work

    Cons

    Management is not as educated as other ITgroups I was at. Supervisors and some "managers" are not required to have a college degree I have never heard of this in an IT shop. As a result, management is very weak

    Pros

    Pension plan still available Compensations are comparable to others in the bay area For engineers it's better off to be in the union

    Do not know how to utilize talent from within. It's better off to quit for a few years and come back to advance further very political

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, good hours Monday through Friday 7pm to 3:30pm

    Cons

    One mistake and your fired. Pge doesn't believe in accidents. If you follow all of their policies you will never get in an accident. Therefore you need to be a perfect employee

    Advice to Management

    Put a stop to the recruiters and supervisors only hiring family members. Give other people a chance to work at Pge other than family and friends.
