    I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunities, for Construction, Technical and Professional Jobs. The company has really become customer focused and employee focussed with the intent to provide, fast, safe and reliable service.

    Cons

    Extremely large and diverse service area, makes it pretty difficult to provide service at the most highest level to all customers in all service areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on maintenance and replacement of aging facilities, installation of new facilities and work closely with ESC and IBEW Unions.
