    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work environment where you are stimulated to solve problems. Sharp coworkers.

    Cons

    Upward growth is limited by the vested people above you, who won't leave, b/c of the golden handcuffs in the form of the pension. Often, they can't go anywhere else that will pay them the same and allow them to enjoy the quality of life the bay area affords.

    Advice to Management

    Quit with the identity politics. Stop blaming other people/things and see how you contributed to the company's own problems. Be accountable.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good, pay is low.

    Cons

    Organization change, change today, change yesterday...what group am I in?

    Advice to Management

    Slow continuous change is good, but rapid change designed by outside consultants who don't do the work does nothing. Things have changed so much that my many years of experience are worth nothing, because everyday there is a new way... and that new way won't be successful. For example, switching to a new program without conducting thorough testing and working the issues out...
