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

    Pros

    great benefits

    great pay

    easy job

    everything you need is provided, money isnt an issue here

    really hard to get fired, union or non-union

    easy to move around the company

    no experience required for entry level. use any job you can as a foot in the door. not many companies left that really pay you for your time well

    plenty of OT whether you want it or not

    Cons

    horrible work/life balance. upper management can force the union workers everyday weekday or weekend and holidays as much as they want because they mismanaged the workload. so they suck at their job and we suffer while they can go home to their families that we never see

    i have no idea how this place makes money with all the wasteful spending, probably because they have no real competition

    Advice to Management

    we have families too. i dont know how they can look at themselves or their families even when they shamelessly prevent everyone else from seeing their loved ones because of their incompetence

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at PSEG full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, learn a lot in short period of time.

    Cons

    busy life, no work-life balance. HR is dysfunctional. Managers are afraid to lose their job and will step on your head if necessary. Bonus is offered but managers will do and say as much as they can so you don't get it.

    Advice to Management

    Be more human, have more ethics, more honor and dignity. don't sell out your people and work with your subordinates. they are not your slaves.

    Good health benefits but you have to pay percent

    Cons

  9. "PMA"

    I worked at PSEG full-time

    Pros

    Great salary and overtime available. Also there are a lot of opportunities for employees to move up.

    Cons

    The work environment is kind of hectic and very reactionary.

    Advice to Management

    I think that a better training program for new employees would be really helpful.

    Pros

    Laid back workplace. People here are happy. PSEG pays well. Hours are flexible depending on you supervisor/manager.

    Cons

    Huge age gap! Most of the people here are old. Lack of community at work. A lot of red tape and resistance to change.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to change and new ideas.
