I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good pay, cannot complain about the wages as it was a comfortable living as long as you are not in a peon job.

Cons

Beware of certain bosses, they talk about you to your co-workers behind your back then give you a lousy review as if you did something wrong!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't buddy up with the co-workers and discriminate against certain people for being white. You are setting yourself up for a lawsuit.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern

    Pros

    This pertains to the Regulatory Relations department specifically:
    -People who work here are very intelligent and take their work seriously
    -Good exposure to utility business
    -Once you're in, easy to stay in, firm supports internal referral
    -Good pay

    Cons

    -Aging workforce means most people at the firm are 40+ years old
    -Little onboarding or training for new hires
    -Little exposure to other roles or departments unless you change roles (for younger employees could be after 1-2 years)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start thinking about transitioning the company to attracting younger crowd. Current workforce will retire soon and the current HR/onboarding model is not attractive to recent grads looking for accelerated career growth

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, location of office was great and growth for learning opportunities were available.

    Cons

    Nepotism continues to quiet evident on who gets hired and what pay rate. You may get hired but ability to move up clearly depends on who you know rather than what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base more job advancement of job qualifications, outside HR department and better management oversight.
