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

    Pros

    Everyone working there was consistently professional and courteous, always doing what was possible to help a person accomplish their tasks.

    Cons

    Because PG&E is such a large company, sometimes details would get lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to the least of the employees, not even the supervisors.

    Great friendships with co-workers, poor work-life balance and constantly changing expectations.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Higher than normal salary for the area, good friendships have come out working here, ability to learn a great deal outside of your area of interest.

    Cons

    Very very poor work-life balance efforts on this company's behalf. Mothers and new fathers should steer clear of working here. Employees are expected to manage work loads that should be covered by several people. Inconsistent Management styles. Some are very approachable and some are very brutal. There's a big population of employees eligible for retirement and hardly anyone replacing them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop with the ever-constant changing initiatives. Hire more people! Please stop over working your employees to save a few pennies! And please follow through with work life balance for families. You are loosing quality people by demanding too much.
