    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Best pay in the area, many great and talented co-workers

    Cons

    Cannot get on permanent to save my life even though I have been working outages for several years and a few years as a year-round contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Value your TAs. They have experience to keep Diablo safe. You shouldn't trust too many newbies just to save some pennies or an even more expensive problem could occur.
