    Great Company. They do invest in their employee base and continuously drive development and performance improvement. Company is very process oriented and compliance driven. Safety is super important. The compensation is pretty good. Great group of people to work with.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 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.

    Pros

    Good company, employees have much experience and are willing to teach the interns the work necessary. Also, lots of free food (breakfast, lunch)

    Cons

    Not enough work, employees themselves sometimes did not have work so to provide interns with work was difficult. Also some were not friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more ogranized

    Pros

    Free coffee, decent toilet paper in the bathrooms, nightly cleaning crew

    Cons

    PSEG is not a nice place to work. Their number one priority is to PREACH about their values (they do not follow them or represent them, just preach them) For example, they will go on and on about how safety is #1, yet demand office people drive in during a horrible snow storm or else use their vacation. How is this caring about the safety of your employees? And forget about work/life balance, they don't care. Some people are given summer hours, while others are not. Some are given ability to work from home, others are not. Most of the jobs are given to incompetent people because they are friends with directors. Most decent established employees do not stay there and find better places to work where they will actually be appreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any, they obviously don't care.
