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

Pros

Good mix of experience levels. Senior level staff very willing to work to help new staff learn.
Project lead managed work level and schedule very well.

Cons

As a contractor, my interaction with business leaders was limited. I felt that I could have contributed more, but since I was not a company employee, my range of work was too focused.

Advice to Management

Team management changed during the time I worked there. Not communicated well to contract staff members.

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of room to advance, and move around the company.

    Cons

    However, years of internal promotion has lead to under qualified people being promoted into positions they aren't qualified for.

    The overall talk I got from multiple directions was "Fix it and make it better, but don't change anything. People here are slow to accept change." I'm sorry, but if something is broken and you need to fix it, then you also need change something.

    Advice to Management

    Realize when you don't have internal talent to perform at industry standard levels, and hire from the outside. You have the right roles identified, but you have the wrong people filing them.

    I hope you can find a way to retain 'new blood' when you get them on board.
