I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, decent pay, location of office was great and growth for learning opportunities were available.

Cons

Nepotism continues to quiet evident on who gets hired and what pay rate. You may get hired but ability to move up clearly depends on who you know rather than what you know.

Advice to Management

Base more job advancement of job qualifications, outside HR department and better management oversight.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern

    Pros

    This pertains to the Regulatory Relations department specifically:
    -People who work here are very intelligent and take their work seriously
    -Good exposure to utility business
    -Once you're in, easy to stay in, firm supports internal referral
    -Good pay

    Cons

    -Aging workforce means most people at the firm are 40+ years old
    -Little onboarding or training for new hires
    -Little exposure to other roles or departments unless you change roles (for younger employees could be after 1-2 years)

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about transitioning the company to attracting younger crowd. Current workforce will retire soon and the current HR/onboarding model is not attractive to recent grads looking for accelerated career growth

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Telecommuting; salaries are good for starers or those without a degree - not so good if you are already high in the pay scale and coming in; benefits are better than some private sector, pension plan. If you are focused - good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Managers and up are jumping around with demands out of fear - not a good mid-management set up. The demands shift all over the place and take up too much of the day. Generally weak middle management. Low-balling the salaries for new hires and managers. Hard to hear you came in at top step when you didn't. Work is too focused on meeting odd measures of productivity - all for the bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Change the metrics of bonus measurements - ie: injury reporting and numeric scales that only measure a small aspect of work that employees really have no control over. The daily work gets driven by these poor scales. Pay well from the start. Too insular and averse to new ideas.
