    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 pay for just graduating...but OT is not always approved.

    Cons

    Micromanagement on every task and assignment; no room to flex all the creativity engineers usually are hired for. Systems Engineers are basically the paralegals of the engineering world, 95 % of the job is remedial administrative tasks that require shifting through documents and reports all day. They frequently hire very qualified young engineers and "use and abuse" them. Most leave after only a few years with a sour taste.

    Advice to Management

    It is not their fault, the industry is gearing system engineering to be this way but they should stop micromanaging everything.

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

    Pros

    High salaries and large bonuses. Willing to provide training to entry level employees that meet ANSI requirements. That's about it for the pros.

    Cons

    Confused leadership, most of which have been promoted beyond their ability. Non-union employees often work long hours without compensation. Training staff is often belittling to new employees. Constant struggles between union and management. High turnover rate for management. HR is completely incompetent. It took over a year to get my pay issues corrected. HR is also extremely racist. If you aren't black, they probably can't help you. V.P. comes down a few times a year to tell you that the company is about to shutdown the nuclear side.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in some new people for management. Recruit people based on their abilities and place them where needed instead of trying to push everyone through the same mold. This causes several parts of the organization to be understaffed in the leadership area. Specifically the maintenance departments.

    Pros

    A lot of overtime and opportunities to make money and grow. Good Benefits

    Cons

    ALOT of discrimination towards minorities. Special treatment was given to those non-minorities. Management was a joke, had no idea what they were doing and didn't trust there workers. IBEW protects you until a certain point then just takes the company side. Good place to work for if you turn away to all theses problems.

    Advice to Management

    STOP DISCRIMINATION!

    Pros

    Nice offices, free coffee, lots of work, high energy atmosphere, ability to manage multi million dollar projects.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Management seem to all be competing to advance and go to greener pastures at the expense of thevProject Managers and other staff. This might be due to the reason that they have been promoted to the level of incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    The Director and Senior Project Managers need to be replaced with personnel that know how to
    Manage a Project Management Deoartment.

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of really good, talented staff that are experts in their job and care greatly about the work they do for PSE&G.
    Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    The management of the company, from Director up, is pretty out of touch and clueless when it comes to engaging their staff. They like to talk a lot about it, but do not live the talk.
    Many have never worked anywhere else in their careers. It is very political.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink the current management and their actual experience, education or training required to do their job. Just being a "good" manager or a "nice guy/gal" is not enough and your employees are left to have to try and deal with them.

    Pros

    Contractors pay is negotiable, that's just about it.

    Cons

    Everything! Department is ran by a bunch of 'too cool for school' guys that hire their best friends to assist them with running the department. Absolutely no minorities in leadership, very condescending, and rude management. You can find better employment elsewhere if your morality matters.
