      CPUC (regulator) and internal chaos makes this company a tough one to recommend

      Pros

      The company has many wonderful people. Great benefits. Post COVID, flexibility to work from home has been great. I think there are areas where it isn't chaos but they are hard to find.

      Cons

      Two issues: 1) the CPUC and 2) internally chaotic. The company is disorganized mostly due to an unreasonable regulator (CPUC) and too many competing priorities. The company's spend has doubled but it isn't in labor, labor has been cut dramatically and work has been increased. Work life balance is an issue because it doesn't exist. I do not believe the company is going to improve for the employees. Leadership is a revolving door and I truly think the regulation of PG&E is what cripples the company. It is a bunch of regulators who have no idea how the business even works, trying to feel important. Many of the regulators do not understand the basics of a gas and electrical company yet that is where all our time is spent - explaining it to them.

      Great work life balance

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      PG&E has great work-life balance and rarely will you need more than 40 hours a week to finish the job at hand. In addition, the benefits are at least decent, if not great.

      Cons

      Definitely needs a lot of progressive updates as many procedures and processes date back to the old days. Corporate ladder may be difficult to climb.

      Pros

      Great work life balance. Great compensation. Job security. Very safety oriented. Very cultured and inclusive.

      Cons

      There is a ton of work to do. A lot is expected of you and a lot figuring things out as you go
