Negative Outlook

Pros

Lots of great people committed to their jobs, customers and company. Great place for learning about energy and utilities. Good training opportunities.

Cons

Management often more focused on pleasing the level above them, rather than the people reporting to them

Advice to Management

Slow down and push back (gracefully) on senior management to protect your teams

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been here for about one year and have had no issues. They give you the overtime you want as well as the days off that you need with no harassment. There is a well developed culture between the employees.

    Cons

    When people need technology assistance, It always seems to be an emergency. Maybe management could loosen their grip on their employees a little bit so they do not feel like their life hangs in the balance with every word document.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making positive strides and keep making the safety improvements i have seen implemented in my short time with PG&E.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities in many functional areas including rotational opportunities. Opportunities to work on many emerging areas such as Solar Power, SmartGrid, Environmental Protection (GHG/cap and trade) just to name a few. New leaderships attracting industry leaders. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Reactive rather than pro-active because of the current regulatory environment. Negative media coverage can be demoralizing.
