    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good benefits, opportunities to move around and do different jobs, lot of good people trying to do good things. Usually a good appreciation for work life balance.

    Cons

    Big company, easy to get lost. Lot of people higher up are afraid to make decisions so projects can move slowly because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Forget about shareholder values and focus on the business. Stop shaking things up just because a new high paid manager has to prove they are making changes in order to get their bonuses.

    Current Employee - Non Union Professional in San Francisco, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work life balance, tuition reimbursement, amazing health insurance, opportunities to try different jobs, the employee resource groups (like clubs) are a great way to meet others in the organization, reward bonus are appreciated, new CEO Tony Early seems to be putting emphasis on "owning" the Co's mistakes (refreshing and different mentality compared to former leadership)

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted, mind numbing bureaucracy, too many layers of management leads to inflexibility and inefficiency, no one wants to take responsibility for decisions, "the way its been done mentality", many workers don't contribute because they can get away with it and/or they are "riding it out" until they get their pension.

    Advice to Management

    I think the views at this company are way too short sided . .always looking at staying on budget for the year but not realizing that a lack of investment in infrastructure costs you more in long run!!! Directors generally don't look at long term costs. Why would they. . .there is no incentive for them to. The lack of investment is infrastructure is is true for software (dating to early 1990's), wires& pipes (San Bruno), and people (especially younger generations in professional roles). I've worked at other organizations and have never seen such poor IT systems. . .don't they realize it costs the company and ratepayers so MUCH more money in the end by not investing in systems with today's technology, incentives for next generation of employees, and most vitally the safety of our customers?
