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

Pros

The company is large enough to allow employees to explore many departments in the energy space. Employees can spend their entire career with this one company.

Cons

As a government regulated company, with 100 year history and large in size, decision making can be sluggish and introductions of cutting-edge technologies especially for internal operations, takes more time that with companies in other industries.

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

    Pros

    It's meaningful, interesting work with good people. Easy to roll up your sleeves and contribute right away.

    Cons

    Chaotic environment. "Not enough resources" really means a lack of focus, priorities, and accountability. Environment is not very encouraging or creative.

    Advice to Management

    Set fewer #1 priorities, set a plan, and stick with the plan.
