    I have been working at South Jersey Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Safe workplace and good benefits. Not much more than that. Great for people who do not want to move up in a company.

    Cons

    I used to love it here. Career enhancement opportunities are now reserved for outside applicants and outside candidates. They will have you go through the interviews, have you wait weeks just to tell you they picked someone else who has less experience in the natural gas/energy field but knows someone in the company (I'm looking at you management) I've been here more than 11 years and it just recently got like this under Mike Renna and new initiatives by HR. I am planning my escape via Glassdoor. You've been warned! If you do get the misfortune to work here, make sure you remember this review. Print it and frame it as proof of your failure to heed advice. Good day.

    Advice to Management

    Look around you!!! You have the talent to promote within and keep loyal hard working employees. You are wasting thousands in new hires! Not that it is bad but you are losing good talent to your competitors! Wake up!

    I worked at South Jersey Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. Good people work there

    Cons

    Time off isn't good. Only get 10 days per year. If it snows, forget working from home. You will have to trek into Folsom or they will dock your pay. Working in IT and a software developer? Do not work here! Pay doens't come close to marketet standards. IT department outsources any and all good projects leaving software developers to do junk work. Old IT director worked towards bringing projects back in house. New IT director is going back towards the outsource direction. Stay away! There is no growth there as a developer as well.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of new IT director. She is toxic.

    Pros

    If you work for the utility, and are in the union, you will be set.

    Cons

    Any of the non-reg staff are over-worked, underpaid and not appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Change up management. There is such a high level of turn-over. Talented staff are leaving while we are getting additional workloads.

    I have been working at South Jersey Industries full-time

    Pros

    There are no pro's to working here

    Cons

    This is by far the worst company I have ever worked for. They are out of touch with modern business practices. If you are a young ambitious professional looking to make a difference I would not recommend working here. The company rewards meritocracy and if you challenge the norm you will be blacklisted. Most of the strategic work is outsourced, so the work primarily done in house is more administrative in nature. The compensation is far below market standards, and the benefit plan is very old school. If you were hired after 2009 your benefits are far less than what seasoned employees are offered. Union employees make more than management/professional level employees. Its a culture of entitlement, and a majority of the employees have been with the company far too long. Overall they are out of touch. The Senior executive staff is the most narcissistic group of individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Develop some morals and integrity
