    Pros

    I worked this role as a contractor and I can say that I had a great project team; the business valued excellent communication. Good salary and work/life balance.

    Cons

    The project I worked was on an aggressive schedule managed by an outside partner who squeezed resources to complete work not accounted for in the original project plans. I would call that Scope Creep but the project teams (Not Pepco) never moved milestones but asked employees to simply work harder.

    Pros

    Great environment if we can all have working relationships and keep the personal relationship outside.

    Cons

    Pay and Performance assessment needs to be re-evaluated.

    Advice to Management

    Hold upper management accountable for practicing the coompany values, it's one thing to know them but it's another when they are accountable for practicing them. "walk the walk"!

    Pros

    Great benefits. Pension. Tuition reimbursement. Great balance between working hours and personal life. Good vacation benefits. Training compensation and certifications.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to the surrounding business. No time and a half for overtime positions. I have a good departmental head but there are some departments with less than skilled management.

    Advice to Management

    There should be some push to create two separate career paths. Right now, the company is very management heavy but there should be another path to further your technical careers. There's no motivation for a highly technical person to stay with the company.

    Pros

    Independent work, stable job, good pay not much more you can ask for if you want to balance a family and work. Definitely easy to get involved with other departments and learn about other work.

    Cons

    Slow environment, not much action happening in the office so many people actually telecommute and the cubicles may seem dead quiet with one person on the phone for hours in your wing of the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Some are open to change some are not, they are trying to make improvements

  9. Pepco is a very good company to work for, but not much excitement in the work

    Pros

    Everyone that I've met at the company is incredibly nice and helpful. I was welcomed instantly. The hours are very flexible and they are good about balancing work and home life. It is also a very secure industry, so that is one less thing to worry about.

    Cons

    Some of the work is dull, and sometimes it doesn't feel as though you are really working toward a goal. Ideally, there would be more challenge/excitement, but overall, I can't complain.
