    I have been working at PSEG full-time

    Pros

    Competitive compensation and salary package.

    Cons

    No recognition for talented employees. People who are completely useless are just as valued as people who have applicable skills.

    Advice to Management

    Fix performance review system. Employees are not reviewed based on performance but rather for manager's salary planning.

    I have been working at PSEG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very competitive pay, very stable corporation, offer more career based positions, company is trying to come up to speed with current values

    Cons

    Very political, more like an old boys club, not about what you know but who you know, interview process is very subjective, seems like a lot of conflict between age groups and between management and union

    Advice to Management

    Provide better benefits for management to learn how to manage (leadership training, management certifications, etc). Make the interview process more objective than subjective and about luck in the interview that day and provide interviewees with copies of each question as the interview is occurring. Provide internal (and possibly external) employees who interview for positions a written outlook of how their interview went and where they fell short of being offered the position due to the subjective nature of the interview.

    I have been working at PSEG full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Alot to learn if you have a good manager who supports you which is hardly the case

    Cons

    Nepotism; weak leadership and no young engineer wants to stay more than couple of years at this place. It is dead. And once the projects are done they will slowly lay off people without causing any media hype.

    Advice to Management

    You need to step up and witness who is working and who is only talk.
