I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

What I like the most working for PG&E are their benefit programs, pension plans, tuition reimbursement program, and as well provide a child center (using lottery system) for the employees. Most of the employees are very family oriented and friendly, they don't hesitate to tranfer knowledge. They have 24/7 IT support. They concern with your healty and safety at work.

Cons

They needs do more work in their Talent Connect. Seems like the process is very slow.

    Pros

    The current CIO is taken this company from the dark ages into the present. She has quite a task. She is moving the company on all fronts - hardware, software, and governance. Overall leadership team is great - but is starting to see troubling turn-over . . . which makes one wonder the near future of the IT function.
    Excellent benefits - decent work-life balance.

    Cons

    The battle for dominance between IT and Business still exists. Business is still old school - with a tremendous amount of mis-trust, which creates a political environment that is sometimes hard to swallow. Promotion's are rarely merit - based, with incompetence rising faster to the top then competence. Director's are semi-gods, whether they perform or not. Lagging salaries as compared to other companies, and real life career development/chances for internal promotion - are minimal.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to drastically improve its HR function. This has been a longstanding issue - that both insiders and outsiders are aware off. HR still has the old school mentalities that outside is better than inside. Executive Management needs to change its culture for looking to the outside to fix its problems, and look at the wonderful talent base the enterprise has. Talent is leaving due to politics, lack of internal appreciation, internal promotion, and/or lagging compensation. In short - stop looking outside to fix internal problems - look inside
