Lost in a Sea of Management Demands

Labor Relations and Human Resources (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for less than a year

ProsTelecommuting; salaries are good for starers or those without a degree - not so good if you are already high in the pay scale and coming in; benefits are better than some private sector, pension plan. If you are focused - good work/life balance.

ConsManagers and up are jumping around with demands out of fear - not a good mid-management set up. The demands shift all over the place and take up too much of the day. Generally weak middle management. Low-balling the salaries for new hires and managers. Hard to hear you came in at top step when you didn't. Work is too focused on meeting odd measures of productivity - all for the bonus.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the metrics of bonus measurements - ie: injury reporting and numeric scales that only measure a small aspect of work that employees really have no control over. The daily work gets driven by these poor scales. Pay well from the start. Too insular and averse to new ideas.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
