Former Employee - Senior Recruitment Coordinator in Concord, CA (US)

I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good pay, cannot complain about the wages as it was a comfortable living as long as you are not in a peon job.

Cons

Beware of certain bosses, they talk about you to your co-workers behind your back then give you a lousy review as if you did something wrong!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't buddy up with the co-workers and discriminate against certain people for being white. You are setting yourself up for a lawsuit.

    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 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.
