    Pros

    Decent benefits, opportunity to work closely with C-level management, stable work environment.

    Cons

    The nuclear group is a great place to be if you are a nuclear engineer, but not a place for a finance professional. Though the team is made up of smart and talented people, there are very limited opportunities for growth

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. If you like big companies with free perks like soda, coffee, snacks in the lunch room then you'll like CEG. There's also the occasional free lunch.

    2. Social environment for the most part. You're free to chitchat with your neighbors and socialize.

    3. No micro-management. Take breaks as you need them, and just get your work done. Results are everything here.

    4. Training is offered as they see fit.

    5. One of the top Energy companies on the east coast, and a great learning experience in general. People are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    1. Meetings are plentiful, and rather dull. Follow up meetings are commonplace.

    2. Difficult to differentiate yourself. You're left to find your own path in the company with little guidance.

    3. Meet your own people, and build up your own network to survive. Employees have been w/ the company for a long time, but most won't reach out initially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you value your contractors. They are part of the team as well.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Constellation has an amazing work environment in the heart of downtown Chicago. The people are incredibly friendly and hardworking. I learned a lot from my internship there.

    Cons

    Constellation got taken over by Exxelon and they went from constantly looking for employees to having no open marketing positions very quickly.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time

    Pros

    Team members are great, for the most part. Working at a Nuclear Power Plant provides interesting work. Job stability. Decent benefits. Free safety shoes!

    Cons

    Weird promotion rules. People who obviously have more talent, skills and responsibilities are often passed over for promotions in favor of old-timers who've been around longer. Merit pay increases are a joke (1% raise doesn't even cover cost of living). Although there is an emphasis on safety, schedule pressures can force people's hands. Work Life balance is a joke: 40 hours a week job really means 50-60 with no extra pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop squeezing every inch of work from your people without duly compensating them. Pay people extra when they are in ERO duty.
