    Pros

    BG& 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.

    Cons

    I don't have any challenges here.

    Pros

    Rank & file employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    BGE 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    There 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.

    Cons

    Corporate 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 ManagementAdvice

    Management holds to key to making the employee experience a great one to remember and brag about.
