Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Stable employement, great environment for learning about the industry, tons of smart / dedicated people. New senior management seems promising. Lots of room for growth and new opportunities.

Cons

PG&E is a very large company, so it is challenging to implement efficiencies. People with a wide variety of skill and dedication seem to be rated similarly, making it difficult to remain enthusiastic about "going that extra mile."

Advice to Management

Have the tenacity and stamina to get PG&E back to its roots of operational excellence.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay, work life balance - far better than most private companies. Very culturally diverse and a clear focus on promoting women.

    Cons

    Back door politics, constant lay-offs and re-hiring (except those laid off), poor public image, constant leadership change, nepotism, favoritism, poor management/leadership and motivated entirely by profits. Senior management is "Untouchable" and so very unapproachable.

    Advice to Management

    Take a continuous look at your leadership and get rid of the poor performing managers. Position the company as the "employer of choice". Hire a top PR firm to clean up your public image. Begin lay offs from the top down and practice Change Management.
