    I worked at PSEG full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Great place to begin a career.

    I have been working at PSEG

    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.

    Current Employee - Human Resources Client Consultant in Newark, NJ

    I have been working at PSEG as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone'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.

    Cons

    It'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.
