    Great company, great people.

    Human Resources Client Consultant (Current Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    ProsEveryone's nice. Long term career type place. Most people have been there 30+ years. Hires recent graduates then promotes from within. 40 hour week. Not much overtime expected. Very warm atmosphere. I find most of the management to be very easy to work with. They make common sense, logical decisions.

    ConsIt's in Newark The cafeteria is not great and I don't like to go into Newark much. Most positions can't work from home. Almost everyone is an engineer, if your not, it may be more difficult to move up.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Well respected firm in T&D power industry

    ProsGood balance of work life & family life

    ConsLess manpower and too many projects than the company can handle. Technical standards are not always followed and field and union people are given too much leverage.

    Great Opportunity !!!!

    Analyst (Current Employee)
    Newark, NJ

    ProsThere are so many extraordinary aspects to working at PSEG. 1st and foremost its an organization that values its human capital (employees). Everyone that I encounter has been at PSEG 15, 20, 30, 40 and 45 years. Great benefits excellent career development and opportunity to within the organization. My position has a 10% bonus structure as well as 3 weeks paid vacation some positions have Flexible hours, summer hours. Its like a dream!!!!!

    ConsThe baby boomers are set in their ways and not very technologically advanced. A bit rigid but efforts are being made to create more flexibility with this generation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep of the stellar work with being the paragon of success in the industry setting the bar so high other utilities can't match. Keep attracting employees like myself who are innovative, smart and eager to add value to the organization. Thank you for a job well done!!!!
