    Pros

    Coworkers work hard. Good benefits and pay. Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Management has no forward vision and treats employees as pawns. Forward career advancement is nonexistent. Mandatory overtime results in poor work/life balance. Leadership constantly adds new tasks and harasses employees to rush to complete work quickly. Questionable ethics are used for billing labor. Management micromanages employees which has created an ill culture at PG&E. You can expect to be emailed or called after business hours for non-emergency work.

    Advice to Management

    Send all leaders to mandatory supervisor and communications training. Create roadmaps for future work. Consult subject matter experts before making decisions that affects the entire company. Listen to employees and encourage their career growth.

    Affordability act, no job security, union isn’t strong anymore, hard to advance

    Advice to Management

    Please, stop putting affordability before employees. It’s hurting a lot of employees, many who have been here a long time and are either losing their positions or are unable to advance, especially in union jobs. Many are dissolving.
