    Pros

    Great company to work for, smart co-workers, good life and work balance, friendly people.

    Cons

    Old school technology, takes forever to implement something, no interaction with the leaders, contractors don't get treated that well.

    Advice to Management

    My manager is great, but to the managers above him please involve contractors a bit more in company activities. I know we are disposable, but don't make us feel that way

  3. Good experience, slightly repetitive

    Pros

    It was a very structured environment, and most people are working 9-5. I interned with a bunch of new analysts, so we got to figure out a lot of things together.

    Cons

    Work was repetitive and my manager didn't have the best structure for projects to work on, so most of the time I was looking for my own projects.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely create some more engaging projects for the interns. Many of the other interns I talked to had experiences across the board. Some were working extremely hard, others were just looking for work.

    Pros

    People are friendly and the utility industry is very interesting to be in. Very good benefits and if in SF very nice environment.

    Cons

    Most offices are somewhat old and could use upgrading. Work can seem kind of slow.

    Advice to Management

    Management can communicate better with employees, but the CEO does a excellent job at keeping employees in the loop along with the president.

    Pros

    The people are great and the company cares about their people and their customers. The company is very safety conscious.

    Cons

    On boarding was extremely slow. Many projects get started and then get put on hold.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a more mature enterprise architecture.

    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 Management

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