    Pros

    Ability to do more than is expected of you
    If you come up with an idea, you can implement it
    Very high integrity of CEO

    Cons

    Cost cutting efforts are making it difficult to get some projects off the ground
    Morale has been affected by cutbacks

    Advice to Management

    rethink the bell shaped employee performance curve that has 60-70% in the Fully meets category. It is demoralizing to put so much into a job and then be told you're doing just what's expected of you.

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

    Pros

    There are so many extraordinary aspects to working at PSEG. 1st and foremost its an organization that values its human capital (employees). Everyone that I encounter has been at PSEG 15, 20, 30, 40 and 45 years. Great benefits excellent career development and opportunity to within the organization. My position has a 10% bonus structure as well as 3 weeks paid vacation some positions have Flexible hours, summer hours. Its like a dream!!!!!

    Cons

    The baby boomers are set in their ways and not very technologically advanced. A bit rigid but efforts are being made to create more flexibility with this generation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep of the stellar work with being the paragon of success in the industry setting the bar so high other utilities can't match. Keep attracting employees like myself who are innovative, smart and eager to add value to the organization. Thank you for a job well done!!!!
