    I have been working at PSEG full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    PSEG has pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking and integrity at an all time low.

    The company has an office that requires that employees report workplace suspected workplacce violations, but does not properly investigate if inconvenient and does not protect employees from retaliation.

    Unless you are a minority with "sponsorship", no opportunity to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the business more than your wallet.

    Pros

    I did not find any pros at my time with this company.

    Cons

    Why are all the good reviews 1 liners and from Anonymous people? It seems fishy to me since this company is horrible. Must be HR making good reviews! One would think that if someone loves it there so much they would put their title and location and not be Anonymous.

    Advice to Management

    The management at this company is horrible.

    I have been working at PSEG full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, relaxed dress code, hires older workers.

    Cons

    Never get promoted unless you are related to someone there. Bosses keep useless workers and get mad if you complain about them. Storm duty in blizzards, no regard for your safety, just come in.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to ask for feedback on managers, not just lip service. Need pathway to promotions. Get rid of dead wood. Track who's surfing the internet instead of working
