    Pros

    Excellent pay and very flexible work hours. Great way to meet routinely with Senior Management.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. Expected to mark time and laterally transfer for 10-15 years before moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take a chance and give young people an oppurtunity to get a change in some Senior Leadership posiitions.

    Rewarding summer internship, depending on which department you work

    Current Employee - Summer Intern in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Though I only worked as an intern, I gathered from my full-time colleagues that Constellation has a competitive and generous compensation package. This includes full tuition reimbursements at local colleges and universities. Furthermore, I worked in downtown Baltimore near Inner Harbor so the location is vibrant and exciting, especially during the summer. Many of my intern friends in other departments were kept very busy and immediately immersed in the company's everyday operations.

    Cons

    I had minimal training and was given very little direction as to what goals I was hired to accomplish. For most of my time there, I was felt quite bored due to lack of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of sending out mass e-mails as the primary way of communicating important issues and changes, find a more effective medium so that it's less impersonal.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Stable career. Good development program for young professionals.

    Cons

    "Old" and outdated company policy and benefits is not keeping up with the trend of the electronic age. Schedule is not as flexible as it can be. Pay is comparatively lower than market worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the new generation of workers. Learn from companies like google to retain young talents.

    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.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    The energy industry is quite dynamic so the company is positioned to offer career growth opportunity. The company also fosters a collegial environment where employee views are valued. Compensation package is considered fairly decent. Benefits are generally good except vacations.

    Cons

    Long hours due to conservative approach to staffing. Vacation entitlement is not great (3 weeks for the first 15 years). Company has quite a barbell distribution in terms of employee seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing
