    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and opportunities to move to other departments as well as other geographical areas. The company offers great training programs.

    Cons

    Promotions in some departments and other levels are hard to get because most employees stay in the company +20 years to retire with pension. In some cases, it is easier for external candidates to get these positions than internal candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You get to know how to play politics! Few positives otherwise.

    Cons

    Politics and seniority are everything. Your career will be dead in 3 years. No new technology tried out. Still working with Windows 7. And the pay is very average.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure where to start. Top talent will never look at PGE unless there are dramatic changes. Outsourcing is the right way to go for now.
