Pros

Pay, benefits, 401k, pension, great experience. I really liked the job itself, and for a lot of people it really works out great.

Cons

Lack of qualified and competent leadership. This is a huge problem with the company and just trickles down to so many levels.

Advice to Management

I can't tell them anything that their employees haven't been telling them for years. It became very clear to me that they are not interested in their employees opinions, and have zero respect for their senior employees.

Pay, benefits, 401k, pension, great experience.

Pros

The company is unionized by three unions, so the benefits and pay are pretty great. I don't know of anyone employed with PG&E that doesn't make a living wage. As far as benefits go, retirement was recently moved from a full pension to a cash pension/401k combo for new hires (union).

Cons

As can be seen by poor wildfire management and preparation, the upper levels of management have issues doing their jobs correctly. They have a history of not listening to the workers' input until it's too late. Electrical workers were warning management about bad processes and antiquated equipment that could fail for years before the wildfires took place. Turns out profits were more important. Thank goodness the bankruptcy caused share holders to clean house because management before the wildfires was less than satisfactory.

Advice to Management

You seriously need to listen to your workers when we tell you that the decisions you make cause safety concerns. As an electrical worker, I feel as though a lot of the wildfire issues and equipment failure, as well as voltage and loading concerns on the grid, could have been better handled had management actually listened to us. PG&E has an environment of paying lip service to safety culture without actually taking genuine safety concerns from workers seriously.
