    Pros

    My boss was great, knowledgeable, and gave me a lot of flexibility. People were friendly, great work environment.

    Cons

    Unless you are part of upper management, you are on your own and must pay for your parking in Newark, which adds up.

    Advice to Management

    Be more willing to listen to employees.

    Pros

    People working there feel very relax. Because they have good benefit and good compensation, it all because they are the power company.

    Cons

    The manager did not tell you the truth while hiring a temp contractor worker, at the beginning manager tell you that you have chances to be get hired after the contractor expire, but the reality is that they have already hired some one else for this position. They are just a lie. After I have worked so hard for the financial service department, then they kick you off without any appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be races.

    I worked at PSEG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people on the local level were outstanding to work around. They all were helpful, friendly, and would do anything I asked.

    Cons

    Working in CT for a company based in NJ caused our local associates to be treated with disdain by personnel from the main location.

    Advice to Management

    They should recognize the opportunity to accept the contributions by the local associates to help establish improved methods from an experienced staff

    I worked at PSEG full-time

    Pros

    Good pay for what it is, nice to be outside during warm seasons

    Cons

    Dreadfully boring work, even more miserable during the dead of winter. Very unrewarding, unfulfilling job.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing they can really do, the job is what is it.

    Good work life balance. Benefits are decent.

    Capped pay. Micromanagement. Some positions don't offer upward growth.

    Advice to Management

    Cultivate younger talent and open discussion for new ways to generate revenue. Need a formal training and on boarding process.

    Pros

    It was a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I never hesitated to ask for help and the other interns felt the same. It was also very informative even though I was a finance major they taught me the engineering side as well so I could fully grasp the business.

    Cons

    It was a very old school type of company. Many of the employees were over 40 and have been there forever. Not alot of room to move up but lots of opportunity to move horizontally. Definitely favoritism at times.


  11. Good Place
