I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time

Pros

Lots of opportunities for upward progression as the company's current employees retire, good work-life balance and benefits, focus on turning the company around and investing in operational and customer-related elements is bringing momentum to change

Cons

Stuffy, bureaucratic and conservative culture does not make it an innovative or fun place to work, or an easy place to get things done. As a younger employee, I have few peers and don't feel as though the company is concerned about my development

    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Got to experience doing real work and not some busy work made up for an intern.
    Traveled fairly often to various project sites to ensure that the crew were getting the parts and equipment they needed to get the job done.
    HR put on a couple of field trips and activities for inters that were fun too.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.... well some of the online safety training is quite lengthy and dry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and take care of all employees - this was true in my department, but not all departments.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time (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.
