    I have been working at PSEG

    Pros

    Good company, employees have much experience and are willing to teach the interns the work necessary. Also, lots of free food (breakfast, lunch)

    Cons

    Not enough work, employees themselves sometimes did not have work so to provide interns with work was difficult. Also some were not friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more ogranized

    I have been working at PSEG

    Pros

    Pay was great, people are very nice and helpful. Work and life balance can be difficult (so I was told)

    Cons

    Many people complain about the work and life balance. Most of the workforce will be retiring within several years, need to focus on getting more young people in!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more young people, someone will have to take over when the old workforce retires!

    I have been working at PSEG full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a good, solid company with very few layoffs. I have been happy with all of the managers I've worked for. There is generally good work life balance. Pay is excellent, and tuition reimbursement is a wonderful benefit. I like coming to work. The work can be challenging but in a good way, and most of the time I feel very balanced - there's enough work but not so much that I feel overwhelmed.

    Cons

    There is inequity amongst areas of the company. Some people are allowed flexible schedules and work from home options while others are not. During storms, those in the utility find themselves working long hours. Some managers want you to be on call all the time. It is very difficult for people in certain roles to move up within the company, and it can be difficult to switch departments. This is a unionized & non-unionized organization, which can be challenging. Corporate culture varies greatly from department to department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a company with such a strong emphasis on safety, it seems silly that those in non-essential roles are not given work from home options during storms. People that directly interface with power lines, with customers, etc. and their superiors, I fully understand. But other roles should be given the option to be both safe and productive by working from home.

    Reasonable employer but not decentralized; company speaks to employee engagement but does not always "walk the talk";

    I worked at PSEG full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits programs; many opportunities for personal/professional growth if you are in the right area/department. In some areas, the senior leadership competency is highly questionable

    Cons

    Poor HR leadership; not allowed to make decisions with senior leader knowledge and absolute concurrence. More a culture of blame than learning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really look at your HR leadership skills and stop the cronyism. Transform the culture to a true learning culture. Don't pride yourself on how many disciplinary actions were taken.
