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

Pros

Great benefits for retirement, medical is pretty good too.

Cons

Work-Life balance although not pushed, is hard to control. In some departments in IS it is hard to excel in your career as you are asked constantly to write out and prove your worth for those advancements. This makes management very inpersonal, and as in other reviews, there are too many layers to management.

    Pros

    Super smart and friendly people, great growth opportunities, great leadership

    Cons

    The SF PG&E offices haven't updated the dress code since the 80’s.

    Advice to Management

    Update our dress code Its time! Dressy casual (Jeans dressed up) has arrived and works for literally every other successful company that surrounds us in San Francisco. Walking around the SF offices feels entirely old and stuffy! And it impacts the energy. An updated look will not only reenergize people but will attract a younger generation of employees.
