    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People are dedicated and for the most part want to do the right thing. Great teamwork in my former department. Outstanding benefits. While work/life balance can be a challenge due to unfilled vacancies, it is sympathetic and understanding if a significant personal issue arises.

    Cons

    New leaders brought from the outside were a little brutal at first but the company has settled down since then. Upper management will tend to look the other way if sr. leader doesn't demonstrate the company values as long as they get results. Lack of career progression lots of baby boomers in leadership jobs. Also slow to fill vacancies which led to burnout by some employees. The market is picking up so they need to be cognizant of this in the future or they could start losing some good people.

    Advice to Management

    All said, doing a great job, keep it up and continue to remember, that its the people who make the company successful.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company faces virtually no competitive pressure and is a reasonably stable business.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Political. It really hinges upon the individual manager you work for. There is a tendency to respond to regulatory stakeholders rather than consumers.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate. Grow. Change. Adapt.
