    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric (Less than a year)

    Pros

    PG&E pampers their interns! Everyone I worked with was very welcoming and treated me with respect. I was trusted to work on projects independently and had numerous opportunities to shadow different professionals and learn about various projects. It is very obvious PG&E values their employees and wants to hang onto them, even if you're changing careers. They cover travel costs and pay for your hours spent travelling, overall a very accommodating employer and I would highly recommend working here to anyone.

    Cons

    Not much to say here.

    Pros

    People are experienced from all walks of life and strive to be team players. Work is challenging and internal clients are demanding. Overall it is a good place to work if you enjoy a hard day's work.

    Cons

    Slow promotions! Training is weak. Systems are starting to take over workers daily work and some work is going offshore. Long hours expected without compensation.

    Playing favorites kills motivation!
