    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Ability to advance, Career oriented.

    Cons

    Very slow moving, tons of bureaucracy, difficult to effect change from the bottom up.

    Advice to Management

    Excitement and morale building efforts over very high level achievements are not effective for ground level workers. Additionally, quite a few of our efforts are very "one size fits all," including some educational efforts that are overkill for office based employees.

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

    Pros

    Employees have a sense of mission, dedication to serving the customer base. The fundamentals of the company are solid and it obtains energy from hydro, coal, gas, and nuclear. Working toward integrating alternative energy sources.

    Cons

    Regulatory structure inhibits innovation, raises costs, but that is par for the course with regulated companies. Perhaps a bigger problem is that the company is too inbred at least in IT org. IT leadership has changed recently, but it remains to be seen if innovation follows. Change is slow and difficult for many to handle.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to integrate outside perspectives and experiences. Congrats on effective dealings with reg bodies.
