    Pros

    The pay and benefits are very good compared to other employment opportunities in this area.

    Cons

    There is no compensation for hours worked beyond 40. It is expected and normal that an employee will work 50 - 60 hours a week without compensation or flex time. Work/Life balance are hollow corporate catch phrases and has no real meaning or due consideration from senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees for all hours worked or at least hire and provide staffing levels that support 40 hour work weeks.

    They decided to roll off most IT contractor regardless of their years of experience with the intention of bringing in new contractors as projects progress.

    Management opportunities are low

    Pros

    They have a great benefits package medical sick leave and other non-monetary benefits. Had satellite offices in many cities as well.

    Company was not very responsible in spending
    Lies to employees about the financial shape and current status
    Horrible severance package if you get laid off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with employees and might avoid pitfalls. Stay within energy and not go outside core with trading energy with investment banks.

    Pros

    Overall good company with good benefits and systems in place.

    Cons

    Baltimore. infighting between departments. Lack of 360 degree reviews. White man's club. No training. Departments can operate in isolation and allow a dictator to flourish. This and the resulting turnover can go unnoticed or ignored as long as the department produces. Fairness is not a top priority and relationships matter very much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for feedback of direct management in the review process to avoid breeding dictators.

    Good pay, merger creates a lot of issues

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are decent but this has been slowly shifting. Now pensions of legacy CCG employees are being removed in certain areas. Decent vacation and sick.

    Cons

    As mentioned, they recently have been removing the pension in areas of the company even to the old constellation employees (with merger stayed intact until now). Management promotes those whom they favor and not on skill which is very evident in some areas. It's a little bit of sink or swim. High turnover rate of extremely valuable employees creates issues. Also a more flexible work schedule would be appreciated. Must work typical 9-6 unless you have a child in which case it seems okay to leave 30min-1hr early

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication in company is still an issue. Not enough information is passed down to employees and certain items are heard via rumors in order to learn anything

    Pros

    Cover the entire retail energy product and service portfolio right from being the largest retail energy provider with offerings in commodity, demand response, energy efficiency, solar and other renewable energy attributes

    Cons

    Due to the internal structural challenges it is difficult to effectively provide a comprehensive offering. Commodity sales force which is the largest individual group are hesitant in offering comprehensive service offerings due to differing sales cycles and lack of knowledge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have technical sales or solutions developers who can develop and structure comprehensive and synergistic energy solutions offerings who have knowledge and expertise across the entire energy strategy
