Pros

Good pay, excellent benefits and that's pretty much it.

Cons

IT senior directors and middle management are completely dysfunctional. 1) No sense of accountability especially in the ISTS department where trouble tickets would sit for days and only worked on by a few dedicated employees. 2) IT Projects are never planned correctly and ends up being descoped due to lack of funding 3) Codependent relationship between Business and IT with most IT managers being pushed around by Business to meet unreasonable deadlines. 4) Contractors are King with some working for PG&E for years. Employees are expected to work unreasonable overtime and being on-call without being compensated accordingly. 5) Thinking outside the box and showing any initiative are always met with indifference and definitely no recognition.

Advice to Management

Need major rethinking around accountability, developing a healthy relationship with Business and especially employee retention -- the pay and the benefits are not enough.

    Pros

    Got to experience doing real work and not some busy work made up for an intern.
    Traveled fairly often to various project sites to ensure that the crew were getting the parts and equipment they needed to get the job done.
    HR put on a couple of field trips and activities for inters that were fun too.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.... well some of the online safety training is quite lengthy and dry.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and take care of all employees - this was true in my department, but not all departments.

  2. Great company to work for, great benefits and wonderful pay

    Depending on the position, it may take longer to advance. Parking can be difficult at times.
