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 have been working at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent pay.
    Flexible work schedule.
    Um ...

    Cons

    Do your job too well and you'll get voted off the island. Top heavy organization with entrenched culture of nepotism, favoritism, and mediocrity. Back door politics determine longevity and advancement potential.

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

    Pros

    Lots of employees are willing to stop and help you; large company environment that is hiring a lot; new leaders in company (CEO) are taking the company in the right direction

    Cons

    many middle management are very territorial and can be short sighted with their own organization's personal gains, which hinders overall company benefit and improvement; slow to change and lots of very tenured employees resist change
