    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.

    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

    Pros

    Leadership team is great and very visionary. There are job opportunities across the company and in the utility in Baltimore.

    Cons

    Current merger with Exelon provides opportunities as well as challenges. Some people will truly benefit from the opportunities, others will be placed in temporary positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive the synergies and efficiencies that come with the merger. Make the new company the best out of the two legacy companies.

    It has been a good living for me. I was able to get my education through the company and eventually move up the ladder.

    Pros

    Good pay... good people - good hours

    Cons

    Too many meetings - not a clear direction - too many layers to go through to get things done. Sometimes talents are recognized unless you have an Engineering degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't want to be part of management. They are told how to think. Very few stick up for what is right.

    Pros

    Challenging work that I enjoy.

    Cons

    Politics of management sometimes seen at odds with making this place a friendly place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being so bottom line oriented. Profit is important, but you won't make a dime without committed employees. Think longer term strategies.

    Pros

    Intelligent people around, good industry reputation, not too big to get buried in the hierarchy, and not too small to lose corporate support.

    Cons

    Few competitors in the area which would limit everyone's movability, famous Baltimore so stay within a few blocks, utility feeling, downtown traffic.
