    I worked at PSEG full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. The CNO Tom Joyce is a good and fair man. Note: the two star rating is bumped up a star solely because of the CNO.

    Cons

    Cost of living pay increases became non existent unless you're "represented" (union). Eligible employees to retire were not retiring taking a large chunk of pay/incentive increases. They also hired high paying execs who are taking a larger chunk of the pay incentives. Even though employees were doing great they got bad merit reviews to justify not giving a bonus/increase. These plants will decommision in ~20 years so there is no future there unless a new nuclear construction is announced. Appears they are retaining only those employees that will retire around the same time the plant licenses expire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Admit to management related mistakes, develop actions to address the issues. Don't hide the truth. Some individuals might not be in your circle of friends and will do better for you than your "buds". Management is not in control, the represented work force controls them.

    Pros

    Good balance of work life & family life

    Less manpower and too many projects than the company can handle. Technical standards are not always followed and field and union people are given too much leverage.
