Pros

Benefits include pension plan, but you must work here for 5 years first to be eligible. Salary seems decent.

Cons

Very old style thinking and slow to adapt and implement new processes and technologies; nepotism still exists here

Advice to Management

Way too many layers to get decision making done and unfortunately, big decisions aren't shared with everyone to contribute which leads to poor decision making; senior management should be more in tune with the day to day operations and tasks of their employees

    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.
