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.

    I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Ability to advance, Career oriented.

    Cons

    Very slow moving, tons of bureaucracy, difficult to effect change from the bottom up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Excitement and morale building efforts over very high level achievements are not effective for ground level workers. Additionally, quite a few of our efforts are very "one size fits all," including some educational efforts that are overkill for office based employees.

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

    Pros

    Employees have a sense of mission, dedication to serving the customer base. The fundamentals of the company are solid and it obtains energy from hydro, coal, gas, and nuclear. Working toward integrating alternative energy sources.

    Cons

    Regulatory structure inhibits innovation, raises costs, but that is par for the course with regulated companies. Perhaps a bigger problem is that the company is too inbred at least in IT org. IT leadership has changed recently, but it remains to be seen if innovation follows. Change is slow and difficult for many to handle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working to integrate outside perspectives and experiences. Congrats on effective dealings with reg bodies.
