    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Baltimore Gas and Electric full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rare job that offers a pension. So that's great.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about how well you work but rather the perception you have. If your a "Yes" person you will go well. If you suggest an alternative idea well you'll find yourself being questioned about your perception.

    Advice to Management

    Your most recent employee survey was horrible. You claim you're working on it. Keeping work on it.

    Pros

    Good benefits, great coworkers, great training

    Cons

    HR doesn't listen/back up employees that are being bullied by supervision and only listens too supervision. States they will do investigation on issue but doesn't follow thru. Forces you to sign papers when you disagree

    Advice to Management

    Not easy only promotes people who do not understand the work or system

    I worked at Baltimore Gas and Electric full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, pay and work life balance are the things I really liked.

    Cons

    Everything is becoming so much more metrics driven. Depending on your department, the metrics and workload are imbalanced.

    Advice to Management

    Be more willing to allow employees to utilize their skills or degree, if tuition reimbursement was provided.

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and share in your pain and annoyance with the company, Great benefits, Pay is nice, No worries on job stability

    Cons

    The work-life balance is pretty much absent, schedules change constantly without notice, the grading of your quality on the phone is absurd due to being pretty much told you missed out on things you were not formally told you needed to do

    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.
