    Great Company!!!

    Designer Ll (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsBG& E is a great place to work. They offer a great health care plan with reasonable employee contributions. The 401K plan is diverse and they also match a percentage. The tuition reimbursement is a great thing to take advantage of and they strongly encourage anyone to take classes and to move around in the company. The culture is very diverse with numerous resource groups to make everyone feel comfortable.

    ConsI don't have any challenges here.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible for Engineers

    Engineer III (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsRank & file employees are great to work with.

    ConsBGE does a poor job of developing engineers. They tend to pigeon-hole the young engineers, so that they can't go anywhere. Also, merit doesn't matter. You will only advance if you know the right people (like most places).In addition, Management doesn't have a clue to mesh modern business practices with day-to-day activities of keeping the lights on and the gas flowing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo many chiefs and not enough Indians. A lot of the middle management is expendable and a hindrance to getting work done

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

    I loved my career experience at Baltimore Gas & Electric until...

    Human Resources Consultant (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsThere is a ton of room for great growth if you're assigned to a leader who believes in his or her staff and want you to be successful. The pay and benefits are amazing. Employees across the board treat each other like good friends & family.

    ConsCorporate policies can be horrible in every company not this just one. Working under the direction of a manager who does not care for you makes work-life difficult. It was my first time in corporate roll like this. I made a mistake knew I couldn't talk to my HR Director about it. I'm not one to point fingers, I too was at fault and have learned a value lesson that never happen again.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement holds to key to making the employee experience a great one to remember and brag about.

    BGE (Baltimore Gas & Electric Co.)

    Senior Administrative Assistance (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsBGE serves central MD and is one of the nation's earliest electric & the 1st gas utility. They have a long history of stability and community involvement, and the employees take pride in and are committed to BGE (which has always been and remains union-free).

    ConsBGE's upper management has gotten away from its team-oriented approach and has put lofty goals ahead of the welfare of its work force. Organizationally, the individual business units operate independently, without an understanding of the roles and functions of the other units, so often they are at loggerheads and do not see the whole picture. while they publicly talk about innovation and "thinking outside the box", they do not empower their employees to be creative, or even proactive, and anyone who does not toe the company line is regarded as not a team player. Also, the company doesn't place much emphasis on training or career advancement of amployees (other than engineers). They use questionable performance management and evaluation practices that are inconsistently and/or selectively applied.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBelieve in your staff of dedicated, long-time employees and give them the development tools and lattitude to contribute to the company's success.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
