    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Let me start by saying compensation is awesome! The benefits are amazing. A lot of companies are getting away from pensions and PG&E is still running strong. Free vision and dental. This company is by far one of the top five companies to work for in California.

    Cons

    There is no cons to this company.

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

    Pros

    -Great work-life balance.
    -Tons of development training paid for by the company.
    -Amazing benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision, 401K match, Life Insurance, Pension, 3 weeks vacation)
    -Family Friendly

    Cons

    -Highly regulated industry.

    -Communities have mixed reviews about the company which can sometimes make your job difficult. Either customers really love us or really hate us. The good thing is that the company is aware and has put forth real effort to change that negative perception by being safe, reliable, and affordable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage the speak up culture.
