    I worked at PSEG full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was decent, good people to work with, good benefits, bonuses were available to earn, supervisors could earn overtime.

    Cons

    Long hours, non-paid professional time for exempt employees, only fixed what was absolutely necessary for the plant to run, poor technical references, they expected teams to perform function of much larger groups ( undermanned). Poorly managed overall.

    Advice to Management

    Provide people the personnel necessary to get the job done. You can't hold people accountable for not meeting the team goals if you don't provide the tools and guidance to do so.

    Pros

    The benefits is really good.

    Cons

    They provide you no training.

    Advice to Management

    You can't blame an employee for not performing their job to the level you'd like if said employee has not been provided all the resources possible to be success, in general, within the company, and in particular, in their role. "PROVIDE THEM THE NECESSARY RESOURCES TO BE SUCCESSFUL"

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent salary, people are ok, very difficult to get fired

    Cons

    Impossible to inspire, get noticed, create changed, or be rewarded for ACTUAL hard work

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of employees who are consistently going out of their way to save the day, and reward them. Doing nothing is a sure way to de-motivate them.
