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

Pros

Pay, benefits, and employee discounts. You also get to work with some really great people who care about the work that they do.

Cons

Lack of training, lack of concern to the environmental impact caused by construction (a very weak procedure put in place), management has this "us against them" attitude towards union employees which make communicating concerns a tedious task, and nepotism is often tolerated, and dare I say, practiced among the ranks of management.

Advice to Management

There are a lot of companies out there that issue psychological testing for managerial employees for a very good reason.. Just a thought.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, awesome team to work with daily - including internal clients and external agencies. I was a part of the team when the department was young and growing and it was exciting to be a part of that effort for several years. Have made a lot of lifelong friends and connections. PG&E is also really willing to invest in your professional growth/development with classes/seminars.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for growth - already top heavy in the management arena for the marketing department specifically
    New management came on board in late 2012 and the atmosphere/culture became a lot less enjoyable
    Too many politics - both internally and with the regulatory entities - it prevents work from getting done and progress from being made

    Advice to Management

    Try to do better at listening to your employees and ACT upon what they are telling you in how things can be improved. There is a lot of 'acknowledgement' of the problems but no action to truly fix it. Lots of great talent has been lost and without implementing some changes, more will likely go too.
