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.

    Pros

    There are several select places in the company where management and employees are sharp and motivated to deliver results. Strong sense of doing what's right by the employees, many of whom are very environmentally-motivated and passionate.

    Cons

    Middle management presents a significant barrier to changing corporate culture. Current corporate culture and organizational structure that makes it a challenge to deliver results and recognize employees that do good work.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate middle management layer and reward fast learners motivated to make positive change
