Pros

Employee safety is a number one priority.
Good Team Environment.
Great compensation and benefits.
Baked goods available for the team every week.
Field trips to various company sites.

Cons

Some internal processes take quite a while.
Best practice documentation needs to be improved.
Internal restructuring was a little cumbersome.

Advice to Management

Leverage best practices that have been set by Utility and IT organizations to improve efficiency and reduce micro-managing. Make the company's processes less complicated and flow smoothly.

    No opinion of CEO

    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.
