Pros

Great company culture- good benefits.

Cons

Management is VERY OLD SCHOOL. It takes a LOT of effort to get promoted in IT. Does not work the same in other departments. The leadership team in IT have a very negative approach on change management and have poor organizational leadership skills. They protect each other so don't get on leaderships bad side!

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

    Pros

    Company that's relatively immune to the economy cycles so job safety is there. Generally nice people. Good work-life balance although it's depends on a group you work in. Company is huge on safety and does a lot for the environment.

    Cons

    Extremely political!!! More so that any other place I've seen or heard of. It's mostly not what you know but who you know. Many people in high level positions who are not suited for those jobs but they got there through knowing someone. Upward mobility is limited. Very difficult to change processes due the regulatory nature of the business as well as people who are resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more openly; have less meetings to talk about things that never end up getting done for one reason or another.

    Pros

    The company provides a necessary and important service for society. People are generally smart and even-keeled.

    Cons

    Strange mix of profit motive and regulated responsibility to the public interest. Can constrain business strategy and make strategy selection criteria difficult to prioritize.

    Advice to Management

    In CES, our administrative staff is horribly overworked. The admin to staff ratio is far too low which means I spend time doing low-value activities that are way below my pay grade.
