Overall Reviews at Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E)
Plan Manager | Sacramento, CA | Apr 27, 2020
Poor management. Do not value staff's efforts.
I found management very micromanaging, but no inherent interest in employees success. Their appraisal program is from the 1960s. They have little interest in employees contributions either.

Depending on your boss, good place to work. One boss was immature and valued here say more than direct and open discussion.
Good place to work if the boss is fare and open to discussion. Hard to become full-time if you are a contractor. You have a better chance of success if you work directly with the hiring manager and keep third party vendors away from your work. The SMEs were great.

Used to be a great company to work for, not so much anymore
If you like to be constantly behind the pay band, overworked, and underappreciated then please work here. This used to be a great place to work but all levels of management have been corrupted. Maybe the new CEO can change things, but it's not looking great.

Great place to work
Great place to work. Good management. Great engineering tools. Great planning. Treats employees with respect and cares about their well being and development.
Change Manager | San Francisco Bay Area, CA | Nov 11, 2019
Initially very good
Until a reorganization occurred I was very pleased and positive about my role.
After a new Senior Director, who was subsequently removed, led our operation and displaced most of the existing professional staff with non professionals who were promoted over the incumbents I soon returned to contacting.
Construction Supervisor | San Ramon, CA | Aug 11, 2019
Great place to work.
Great place to work. Tremendous investments in their employee development. Afford a lot of movement including job rotations. Masters degrees preferred, preferably from a top college required for advancement.

Avoid this place
Avoid working here as a contractor - Managers are incompetent people managers and support cutthroat tactics used by contractors to get ahead. This is a toxic workplace.
Marketing Communications Coordinator | San Francisco, CA | Aug 17, 2018
Not for everyone
PG&E can provide you with many opportunities to learn within the organization, and if you are partial to very large, corporate companies, the red tape, and bureaucracy might not bother you, but it is not for everyone.
Senior Application Analyst | San Francisco, CA | Nov 3, 2019
Used to be a family oriented and had work-life balance and not anymore. Outsourcing strategy changed the culture heading south. Very reasonable compensation and benefits. Will give 7 out of 10.
Senior Marketing Representative | San Francisco, CA | Apr 21, 2019
Mentorship was above and beyond
I was lucky enough to have a mentor who really took the time to understand my career goals when I first began working at PG&E. He was also my boss and the person who hired me so it meant even more to me that he wanted to help push me into the next role i was seeking.
ProsCharitable donation matching, great benefits
ConsAt times there was uncertainty about work, budget etc
