    Pros

    Good Pay and good hours.

    Management is the worst of any company I’ve worked for. They lie to their workers and are never upfront with them. No background in GIS.

    Hire people with GIS backgrounds to management.

    I worked at PSEG full-time

    Pros

    Pay was decent, benefits were ok, The co-workers are nice.

    Cons

    No support or training for the position at least in the real estate department. Management has no interest in you as a person you're only means to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They are the heart of the organization. Don't dismiss ideas for cost savings. Provide training when requested. Don't expect everyone to know everything on day 1.

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

    Pros

    They pay a very fair wage and have a very decent benefit and bonus package. There are some good people.

    Cons

    The leadership is pretty weak. They don't have the expertise or skills to be able to lead. They manage up. If you work in a group like corporate real estate, then you should be someone that enjoys the pouring rain and sand in your oatmeal. You should like creating processes that make the job take 10 times as long as it should and cost 10 times as much. Then monitor and track it, make goals around it. Tell everyone how much you have fixed things. Doesn't matter how much you actually understand and do your job, because they don't. What matters is perception.

    Advice to Management

    Look at all the reviews here. Almost every one, except the ones HR posted, say the same thing. The leadership is broken and frankly a joke.
