    Great People, Great Work/Life Balance, Horrible Management

    Pros

    PSE offers a great work/life balance. I worked with some amazing people. During my time at PSE I learned a great deal. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between Directors and Managers which trickles down. There are very few good managers in the company. Puppets are promoted into management not leaders. I experienced bullying and sexism from my manager. The company puts out Ethics Videos but does not take the complaints seriously and will do anything not to acknowledge and will only act if there is a legal charge. If you try to find another job within the company managers either want to hire externally or already have someone in mind for the job. They will often interview people just to go through the process but have no intention of giving them a fair chance.

    Not as good as it used to be.

    Oct 23, 2013 - Manager in Bellevue, WA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great employees who care about each other. A lot of focus at the employee level on giving our customers outstanding service...it is nice to work with people who care about what they do for the customers. Pretty friendly and casual work environment. OK pay and pretty good benefits. It is nice to work for a company that provides an essential public need (as opposed to making widgets).

    Cons

    The company is changing without a plan. Our new CEO has vision, but doesn't know how to implement it with her management team. Many of the directors and managers have only worked here and can't handle change so it becomes chaos for the majority of the employees. Alternatively, they are from other industries (Starbucks, Microsoft, etc.) and don't understand the unique nature of running a utility. It is constant chaos and "flavor of the week" around here and the employee and customer suffer. We have become more of an IT company and less of a hands-on utility. This used to be like a big family, but we have had so many retirements and so many new people coming in (who don't always stay more than a few years) that the family feeling is going away.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance Really good benefits Not very intense environment Autonomy

    Cons

    Upper management is disconnected from employees, especially those in regional offices Lack of diversity, mostly in management Lack of strategy across the organization- Directors don't collaborate, resulting in lack of coordination between departments and challenges for employees Too analytical PSE keeps people around who aren't competent, dragging high achievers down

    Great work-life balance - challenging business environment.

    Pros

    Work-life balance benefits are fantastic. People are genuinely pleasant and friendly. Benefits are very good by comparison to other companies.

    Cons

    Traditional utility culture clashes with current economic and business climate-driven change requirements. Makes it very difficult to be nimble and responsive to customers' needs.

    Great work-life balance, limited development opportunities, nonexistent excitement.

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Work life balance is strong here, for the most part. Most people are friendly and genuine in the lower ranks of the organization. I have met some really great people here. Benefits are pretty good though getting worse for newer employees.

    Cons

    Fire drills are constant. Change is preached but politics drive the organization. Not many inspiring leaders to look up to, more just managers. Things move really slow, especially those with any innovative element. A culture of fear exists in some departments.

    Poor Quality Senior Leadership and Getting Worse

    Aug 26, 2021 - Engineer in Bellevue, WA

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    PSE generally has good benefits and PTO. Employment is stable without fear of layoffs. The company has done an okay job taking care of employees during Covid.

    Cons

    The company is struggling with actually developing and launching a clean energy strategy. There are many Directors and Executives with overlap of duties and honestly things are a mess. The new CEO talks in bullet points and struggles to articulate an actual plan for the future. There’s been significant turnover of key people and the new crop of Executives are extremely poor communicators.
