I have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric as an intern

Pros

This pertains to the Regulatory Relations department specifically:
-People who work here are very intelligent and take their work seriously
-Good exposure to utility business
-Once you're in, easy to stay in, firm supports internal referral
-Good pay

Cons

-Aging workforce means most people at the firm are 40+ years old
-Little onboarding or training for new hires
-Little exposure to other roles or departments unless you change roles (for younger employees could be after 1-2 years)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start thinking about transitioning the company to attracting younger crowd. Current workforce will retire soon and the current HR/onboarding model is not attractive to recent grads looking for accelerated career growth

    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.
