    Pros

    Great pay. Ability to get a ton of overtime... if desired. Hotel rooms for working in bad weather to eliminate the need to commute. Up beat professional atmosphere. Spacious work area. Union job

    Cons

    Negative coworkers (not all). People tend to complain about stupid things and try to bring everyone down with them. People abusing the union representation and making others jobs more challenging. Lack of communication in changes to policy and procedures from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Forward more emails that have information regarding the jobs the people you manage do. Don't push things of till later. Encourage positive workplace behavior. Create incentives for good employees.

    Pros

    Highly respected organization that has a lot of dedicated employees. Executives understand that the "old" way of thinking needs to be transformed into a new organic, decentralized and horizontal communication organization. Job security is high especially with the migration of LIPA. Heavy emphasis on diversity and ethical behavior.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not the best especially if you are in a finance field. Communication and synergy among department sometimes is lacking. Nepotism is still very pervasive. Most of the positions are based on who you know in the organization and not really based on exceptional talent and qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the nepotism and managers that are counter productive and toxic to the organization. Manager who do not have the interpersonal skills to motivate, be respected by their employees and care nothing about coaching and development of their staff , but only their own self interest have no place at PSEG. Retire them and allow new fresh blood to come in.

    Pros

    Great environment to learn, excel, demonstrate capabilities, get recognized

    Cons

    Difficult to make lasting changes in the regulatory nuclear environmental. Procedural red tape, shift work during outages, and longer timeline for getting things done come with the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate that people are your most important asset. Provide incentives for living in the area - not many community options in the greater area. The turnover expected with the aging workforce will need some aggressive hiring and it's better to start now.

    Pros

    As a young professional I find that it is a great place to learn and apply classroom concepts. The culture is a positive one for risk taking as it is conducive to being intuitive and taking chances.

    Cons

    While it is a good thing that many people stay with the company for 20-30 years, this makes it hard to get promoted in a reasonable time.
