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

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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