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.

    Pros

    Worked at PG&E during the Smart Meter, San Bruno, and Prop 46 debacles. Encountered a corporation that was hamstrung at the headquarters, but the employees in the field are some of the best and hardest working people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Management restructures constantly. Company issues talking points then revises them weeks or months later, making representatives lose credibility. Pay and bonus structure is not that great, they only give substantial increases if you're about to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Stop restructuring. Improve pay for frontline representatives. Argue against policies in Sacramento and San Francisco that hurt consumers.

    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
