    Great company even for contractors.

    User Acceptance Testing Coordinator (Former Employee)
    Norristown, PA

    ProsPJM truly cares about their employees in creating a positive work environment whether you're a FT employee or a contractor. There is a good work-life balance mentality which helps make this company a great place to work.

    ConsSome departments seemed a bit "change-resistant" making it difficult to complete certain projects smoothly. There also doesn't appear to be much room for job advancement.

    ProsThe company culture and dynamics are great. The people are friendly, affable and supportive. The work stress isn't too much

    Great benefits but with limited advancement potential

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Norristown, PA

    ProsPJM is a very easy-going company which is generally flexible on work/life balance. Dress is business casual (most people wear jeans, unless interacting with people outside the company). Benefits are extremely good, with a high pay rate, on-site gym which is subsidized, good health benefits, and generous 401(k) plan.

    ConsIt is very hard to advance past a senior analyst position. Rules for advancement past the senior analyst position are unclear and inconsistently applied. The company has a low turnover, so management positions do not open up frequently; when they do, there are a lot of very well qualified candidates competing for the same position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate clarity around how to advance to a band 5 position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
