    I have been working at PSEG full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good colleagues, trying to innovate

    Cons

    Middle management is "Yes" man and all it does is attend meetings and pass on directives from senior management to low level Project managers. Their only motto is never say no even to the craziest senior management ideas. Pushes all the work accountability to project managers. Process and filling up silly project document templates take precedence over execution for every body except those who are chummy with senior management. The management has a tunnel vision and does not entertain any new ideas from folks who were hired to bring in fresh thinking.

    Advice to Management

    You really want to encourage people to innovate, get off their backs and eliminate useless and unproductive process adherence and templates.
