Exception Billing Rep 1 (Former Employee) – Bothell, WA – September 27, 2018
The leadership at this company has deteriorated over the years. The job itself was engaging and rewarding, but the poor morale of overworked and micromanaged employees made the work environment very toxic.
contractor (Former Employee) – Bothell, WA – September 13, 2018
I had previously wanted to work for PSE. I got in through a contract. I didn’t like or fit in with the culture, it was too gossipy, cliche and entitled for me. I know the quiet people in the office didn’t like dealing with the loud people in the office.
Free coffee and some flexibility and professional development
Not a bad place to work, but has steadily gotten worse in the time I've been there.
Customer Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 3, 2018
My immediate supervisor and the people I work with are awesome. However, the current CEO is terrible. She has consistently cut benefits and is universally disliked. Morale has suffered greatly during her tenure as a result.
Engineering Specialist (Current Employee) – Bellevue,Wa – August 30, 2018
Company’s management is only about the bottom line for investors. There is a lot of talk about how great of company it is, it average. Company is concerned about keeping younger workers and is trying to become a more hip place to work in order to attract and keep young people.
Contract Employee (Former Employee) – Bothell, WA – August 14, 2018
Most of the positions within PSE are union based, so, the people who should be fired for not performing at an adequate level, are never fired because they are protected by the severely hands on union reps. Not to mention that most of the people within in the customer service call center were vastly obese, and constantly smelled of rotten flesh or bo. It was a very uncomfortable place to work, but hey, at least there were good benefits and great pay.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – July 29, 2018
I felt that the pay wasn't reflective of the current market. There wasn't a clear path for career advancement unless you're an engineer or in project management. Those that started as lower pay grades often take far longer to get to a competitive pay range than external candidates which devalues loyal/existing employees.
Great, dedicated, smart people to work with
Low pay, decisions take forever, no one feels empowered to make a decision on their own
Great strides toward employee satisfaction in the last 5 years.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – June 16, 2018
It’s been a really great place to work overall. The people are lively, they offer a flexible work schedule, the PTO policy works great for me, and mostly I feel like I am fairly compensated for the work I do. The company is a little behind the times in technology for the industry, but now we are playing catch-up and it’s quite exciting to be a part of the implementation of new tech and strategy in the energy world.
Pto, retirement program, flexible work schedules, great people
An be hard to move around the company in different positions. Pay is below average for the region.
Consultants wasting the company's $, poor workflow processes, unnecessary politics that stifle workflow processes
Material Coordinator 1 (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – April 5, 2018
Poor workflow processes, too many consultants wasting $, management is friends w/each other-causing unfairness & creating unnecessary politics at work. However, many of the people there are helpful and supportive.
nice people there
too many meetings about changing things, rather than simply changing things!
Senior Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – April 5, 2018
My experience was not good. It was a hectic environment with some people stabbing you in the back. My manager had too much on his plate and was not doing a good job. He expected me to lie about my skills to the Project Manager so they would accept me on their team.
Not much changes, and when it does, it is very slow
Not Applicable (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – March 4, 2018
The energy company isn't really competing with anyone. And the people who work there know that. So there's not a lot of urgency or desire to change for the better. So expect mediocrity, and lots of it. You are not going to come in with any fresh ideas. Just come to work, do your job, and collect the little bit of pay they're giving you. If that's your style, PSE is for you! If you're ambitious, stay far away.
Project Financial Controller (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – March 1, 2018
At PSE I was a contractor supporting the IT department as they deployed new tools for the company. Coming from Microsoft, I didn't find the job very challenging. People were friendly and always ready to help.
Finance Manager (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – February 16, 2018
Would be a good place to work if management would stick with a strategy. It seems like management would make a change but not give it enough time to work and go in another direction. So always repeating the same error
