    Not proactive, not collaborative, not ethical. It's a myth to save one's face and rise up the chain.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsStrong bond with employees at mid-level employment.

    ConsIf you don't want to be an order-taker and instead, consider yourself a team leader who believes in growth, ideas, supporting your team members and true collaboration, PHI is not for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo formal training and true leadership skills. There is a difference between a boss trying to move up the chain and an influential leader. They will throw you under the bus at whatever it takes to be recognized and enhance their personal development.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The absolute worst company I've ever worked for in my life!

    Billing and Credit Associate (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsNot a damn thing.

    ConsThe worst! Systems are old and antiquated. No one knows how they work. And the customers...the customers are horrible! But it's really Pepco's fault. They've allowed them to say and do what they want for ever and the word has gotten out. Pepco is so scared of the Public Service Commission that they have allows the customers to run the company. Stay away from Pepco! You'll leave with your tongue bleeding everyday from biting it so hard!

    Advice to Senior ManagementRun your business for crying out loud. Get a backbone and stop letting the customer and PSC run the show.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hello? Is this on? Hello? Hello?

    (Former Employee)

    ProsThe few people with whom I interacted were very pleasant.

    ConsThe few people with whom I interacted were very pleasant...when they were interacting. The organization seems to lack exactly that: organization. Because of this, communication on projects ranges from sporadic to non-existent - with no feedback, etc., there is no way to gauge if you are satisfying the manager's/company's needs on a project or projects. It seems that there is always one "fire" after another that is in need of extinguishing by management, leading to multiple "I'll get back to you" e-mails that are never followed up on - or, as in my case, ultimately no communication at all. It's very strange to be invited on board and then left sitting on deck by yourself wondering where everyone went.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOrganize, organize, organize...communicate, communicate, communicate. It is as simple as that. When you accomplish those two goals, your employees are in a better position to accomplish theirs - and to help make your company successful.

    Lack of management within the tax department

    Supervisor (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits (likely due to unions within the company). Free parking in the Wilmington location.

    ConsDirector and managers were more interested in the personal lives of their employees than the actual work being performed which ultimately lead to the dismantling of the group.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey should have to pay me for my advice!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Pepco Holdings October 2010 review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Newark, DE

    ProsPepco Holdings, Inc offers comperable benefits including life, health, 401K, flexible spending accounts for child care and medical expenses as well as Dental and accidental death and dismemberment.

    ConsMay of the managers are incompetent and are allowed to stay just because they have been working there for numerous years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of managers who have less than 5 driect reports. Develop employees who want to grow professionally. Hold manager 100 percent accountable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
