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

Pros

A pension if you already work there - the new work force has to go to a 401k.

Cons

Very poor middle management and virtually no response to the problem. PG&E has hired and promoted too many people with no supervision experience. They do not train them well - leave them to fend for themselves and the result is very poor morale among the rank and file. If you have a high-end position or technical job, there are better opportunities outside of PG&E without the headaches. If you need to learn a trade or a clerical skill, this is a better place to be.

Advice to Management

Institue a skip-level review. Don't turn a blind eye to employee complaints about first level supervisors and managers. These are the people who are running the Company. You need to train them and provide support. I am a support person, so I have a bird's eye view to the disfunction. There is no process to remove a Manager who has no business managing people and there are too many of them.
