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

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

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

    Pros

    Working there was very goot pay. ALOT of overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    Management was out of touch with its workers there. Workers were very underappreciated there which is the reason for the high turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Reconnect with the employees and let then know that you not only care but understand the stress and extreme attention to detail they deal with every day. When peoples lives are at stake, there is no room for error! The organization, as a whole, can grow only if both management and employees welcome the change.
