    I have been working at Pepco Holdings full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary is decent. Opportunity for advancement is present.

    Cons

    A lot of dead weight. Longtime employees have lost motivation and can be difficult to work with. The company is over 100 years old so the culture can reflect that.

    Currently going through a merger with Exelon, so future is uncertain at best.

    Work life balance is a joke. Management talks a good talk, but when the rubber hits the road, the talk fades.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve work life balance. Employees can be happy and productive with a balanced approach.

    Pros

    Good benefits and opportunity to create a desirable work-life balance (within the right departement).

    Cons

    Mid-level management is close minded, very difficult to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more managers with better, more advanced skills. Provide opportunities for current employees to shine and advance within the company and create a pathway for the college graduates in the company use the degree you (Pepco) funded.

    Pros

    Great educational benefits, great environment if you are associated with certain groups within the company. Great place for a young person who is willing to dedicate a few years to learn about the utility business and advance their formal education at no cost.

    Cons

    Large utility with antiquated management. Company culture slightly changing to appreciate younger talent. You won't get high tech high pressure jobs here.

    Pros

    Stable employment in a bad economy

    Mid-level management is poorly trained and their technical skills are antiquated, managers are also weak so they will not fire a bad employee, people can spend an entire career at the company doing nothing

    Pros

    Some good people there. Good place to work and retire.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, too many locations, too many people in charge that don't know what they are doing and are put there based on who they know, not what they know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good people who know their job and reward them.

    Overall, Pepco is a solid utility company. It has solid financial performance if not strong.

    I have been working at Pepco Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pepco provide good benefits. It's one of the few companies in US still has employee pension plan. It also has 10 holidays. For employee work more than 30 years, they can get up to six weeks vacation.

    Cons

    As job is stable in Pepco, employees here also lack of incentives to achieve suprior performance. I am not too impressed by most people here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should have a fair system set up to promote employee based on their actual performance not on their seniority.
