I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Decent pay.
Flexible work schedule.
Um ...

Cons

Do your job too well and you'll get voted off the island. Top heavy organization with entrenched culture of nepotism, favoritism, and mediocrity. Back door politics determine longevity and advancement potential.

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

    Pros

    Worked at PG&E during the Smart Meter, San Bruno, and Prop 46 debacles. Encountered a corporation that was hamstrung at the headquarters, but the employees in the field are some of the best and hardest working people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Management restructures constantly. Company issues talking points then revises them weeks or months later, making representatives lose credibility. Pay and bonus structure is not that great, they only give substantial increases if you're about to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop restructuring. Improve pay for frontline representatives. Argue against policies in Sacramento and San Francisco that hurt consumers.

    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.
