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

Pros

Great pay compared to other companies. Supportive coworkers. Family oriented allows for work-life balance. Lots of opportunities to learn new skills and move up. Pension! Benefits are some of the best.

Cons

Really far behind on technology and getting individual trained to the latest software. Slow IT implementations. Every department has a very different culture. Slow to move. Culture is too restrictive to engaging employees outside of work.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good intentions re investments governance and budget forecasting.

    Cons

    Some under-performers continue on year after year. Managers prefer not to go through the process of letting go. This results in demotivating others and compromising on quality and safety.

    Corporate priorities and focus may be misguided - primary investments should be on safety and reliability of power grid/infrastructure; and not on reporting metrics to the Public Utilities Commission.

    Advice to Management

    Some companies go through releasing the bottom performers every couple of years - an enterprise is only as good as its people.
