    Pros

    Good work life balance. Benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Capped pay. Micromanagement. Some positions don't offer upward growth.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate younger talent and open discussion for new ways to generate revenue. Need a formal training and on boarding process.

    Pros

    - Great benefits for families - Has both 401k and cash balance pension plans; 401k has generous company match - Is ramping up more volunteer opportunities and tooting its horn about them - Stock is doing very well - If you like being with a department that takes forever to make decisions, this is it.

    Cons

    - HR group is small and overloaded with work; work/life balance is challenging - need to set boundaries/ expectations with mgmt and employees; people come into work sick with the flu, esp. managers as they feel penalized if they don't - Promotional opportunities are limited - Diversity is paid lip service only - Be sure you're ok with having a tiny workspace and lots of conversations going around you on the floor - If you want another job internally, make sure you can handle that one and the one you left b/c they will hound you on both

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work but don't forget the worker bees who are tireless in their efforts. Sometimes management needs a reminder now and then to show some appreciation to employees. Maybe one day PSEG will be taken over and everyone will be given severance. They'll be the lucky ones.

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Some really interesting work. A necessary business also green.

    Cons

    Very little flexibility. Women are not equal to men. Must be an engineer to move ahead. Low tech. Lots of dead weight waiting to retirement. Must go in during snowstorms. No working from home. Very Christian, too much talk about religion.

    Advice to Management

    Become a flexible workplace. That would be family friendly. Don't be so dismissive of women.

    Pros

    Great pay, some of the greatest co workers and good benefits. If you can base your job based on the love for the people you work with in the same position day to day then this is the place to be. Some of the supervisors are beautiful people as well

    Cons

    I have no complaints that I have an interest in putting online. The most I can says is, if you are not willing to put your job before your family this is truly not the place for you.
