I worked at Puget Sound Energy full-time

Pros

Terrific people and good benefits.

Cons

Very focused on being #1 w/JD Power. Say they want to cultivate their people but little hiring and promoting from within. Little growth going on. New president has been there two years and just cleaned house. Very little sense of cohesiveness at the top. Look at their web site and the jobs listed there - most are old. There are no management standards so your experience will vary depending on your department. Some are wonderful, some not. If you choose to work here, remember the work is highly specialized and not particularly useful elsewhere.

Advice to Management

If you want to retain knowledge and cull knowledge from generation retiring, promote from within. There is a growing number of new employees in mid-level roles learning from upper level with the lower level stagnant.

    I have been working at Puget Sound Energy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PSE is a good place to work. The work is meaningful because electricity and natural gas service is vital to economic activity and life. Many don't realize it but the utility industry is one of the most complex, challenging industries to work in. There are many great people that work at PSE.

    Cons

    The utility industry is going through a tough period of change. With less demand growth projected in the future and more emphasis on price, the utility is having to think about changing processes and becoming more efficient. This will be a tough change of course to navigate for the company.
