Don't worry everyone. The CEO is retiring before the company goes bk so she can collect her millions.

For a job well done....

PG&E said Monday that Williams will receive severance. That payment will likely be $2.36 million to $4.46 million, depending on how her departure is categorized, according to the firm’s most recent proxy statement. She also has $3.1 million of pension benefits that may be in flux if the firm enters bankruptcy court. She was paid $8.6 million in 2017, mostly consisting of stock awards, the filing shows.

The higher ups should get squat, and like it!

They have it coming for probably being negligent, and contributing to the fire disaster in Paradise this past autumn.  

SCE >>>>>> PG&E.

The same SCE that fired all it's tech people to hire H1B personnel because they didn't want to pay the tech people?  The SCE that was responsible for the Thomas and Woosley fires?  SCE is just as bad as PG&E.

It drove me nuts seeing the executive pay for all the banks back in 2008.

Compensation committees are just a circle jerk.

I recall the last CEO of the failing Washington Mutual getting something like $22 million for being on the job for maybe six weeks.

Yep, sounds a lot like how the Paradise fire started.

In best Emily Litella….Never mind!

Both SCE and PG&E suck!

Not even the CEO.  Just a member on the BOD.

SCE was negligent with San Onofre Nuclear. In order to save money, they installed inferior steam tubes to keep the reactor cool. Knowing they effed up, they wanted to continue running the plant at a lower capacity to minimize the risk but still highly dangerous. It took officials to force a shutdown.

Now it will take years to decommission the reactors with tons of nuclear waste, being stored at the plant. As a result, SCE has to buy energy from other plants and that cost is being pushed onto the consumer.

PG&E was literally playing with fire while SCE was risking a nuclear explosion.

Given that the current administration seems hell bent on removing the protections that were put in place to keep that from happening again, I am guessing not. It's all about maximizing corporate profit and further enriching those who don't need it.
