Good benefits, good work/life balance, stale culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

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

ProsThis 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 Senior ManagementStart 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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
