    I worked at Pepco Holdings

    Pros

    Pepco has been a good place to work. Great benefits, nice people. Stodgy culture which is I believe common in utility companies. But everybody has been nice. Exelon - a huge company from Chicago - is in the process of trying to acquire Pepco Holdings Inc. If this happens, there will be layoffs- nobody knows who or how many or when. Very stressful. They say it will be for the good in the long run- maybe not if you are pink slipped. It is very sad to be wondering what is going to happen to your job in the next year. Be careful if you are applying to Pepco Holdings in the next year. Your job might go away.

    Cons

    Merger pending- uncertainty, stress

    Storm duty- 12 hour shifts every day till the lights are on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't lay people off. These folks built this company. We are not widgets. Please help the people who have made the company what it is today.
