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

Pros

Salary, work/life balance, tuition reimbursement, and learning opportunities.There are many volunteer opportunities, and employee associations that allow employees to interact outside the normal work environment.

Cons

Promotions are limited or nonexistent in certain workgroups. There also appears to be favoritism towards certain individuals, and unqualfied employees are promoted to supervisory positions.

Advice to Management

Start focusing on gaining the trust of our customers, and less on shareholder profit. Also, there are too many layers of management, and not enough analysts who do the real work. Eliminate the excess "fat"and use these dollars to bring our technology into the 21st century.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
