Support from Management

Management is constantly shuffled around. Titles and people change and no one stays long enough for any stability or strategic plans to be implemented.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Bring back some privacy in the workspace. People shouldn't have to be watched 24/7. Management's actions should match company core values. For example, honesty should not be punished. Give new managers some training, immediately, not a year later or after they cause havoc.
  • Decrease the amount of boosterism-type emails and other nonstop communications on how great the company is. It tends to have the opposite effect after awhile.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management should survey employees and/or use anonymous focus groups to get a good feel on how people really feel about the company. They should institute some sort of ombudsman function so employees don't feel so threatened and insecure.

What I like about the company

PG&E is trying to overcome a bad image as a poorly managed and high-priced provider of natural gas and electricity. They have stumbled badly in the past with regard to public safety. They are trying to reinvent themselves and have brought in tons of high-paid consultants from companies like PWC. These folks, arrogant and frequently abusive, have been given carte blanche to change things as they see fit. The old PG&E culture, which emphasized community and camaraderie, is disappearing. Change is always good. But not when you throw out the baby with the bathwater.
