  1.  

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

    I worked at Pepco Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Strong bond with employees at mid-level employment.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    No 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.

    I worked at Pepco Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not a damn thing.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Run your business for crying out loud. Get a backbone and stop letting the customer and PSC run the show.

    Hello? Is this on? Hello? Hello?

    I worked at Pepco Holdings as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The few people with whom I interacted were very pleasant.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Organize, 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Director 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 ManagementAdvice

    They should have to pay me for my advice!

    I have been working at Pepco Holdings

    Pros

    Pepco 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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