    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time

    Pros

    I am not complaining about work or what I do but how Americans have been marginalized at Exelon and in particular in Qunat Analytics/Structuring team.

    Cons

    Exelon is probably doing the same thing as Disney did to its employees by replacing the Americans with cheap H1B. I am not at all xenophobic but man when you look around at this place you have at least 30-40% people on H1B or who have gotten their green card through employment at Exelon. Some of them have grown up to be managers and they do not respect Americans and are ready to pass Americans off for an immigrant employee. I am sorry but Donald Trump can easily make this place an example of how American workers are being marginalized in favor of cheaper labor. I say cheaper labor as I know of Phds who at the end of the year are working on base salary of ninety thousand dollars a year. That is called wage suppression since it takes about 7 years to get a Phd after your undergraduate studies in STEM field. Once I thought about getting my Phd in a technical field but then I realized that I will be competing against the immigrant working for less than six figures after spending 7 years in graduate school. Don't blame American's for realizing the economics which has been made bad by companies like Exelon. Hiring immigrants of color or gender is not same as hiring American Blacks, Hispanics and Women. I don't want to mention a specific instance as it will identify me but I have been passed over for an immigrant. An immigrant here likes to joke they are cheaper and they are at work all the time... working .. Actually there is even a team here which is jokingly called mafia from certain country as it is made up of only people from that particular country.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire Americans and diversify among the American Black, Hispanics and Women in our Quant Analytics and Structuring team and in Exelon in general. There is no reason for any of team to be 30-40% H1Bs or work sponsored green card. There are plenty of Americans around looking to grow their career as well. Because of wage pressure and immigrant over use in our company I don't feel compensation or growth opportunities are sufficient in our company and hence I will give low rating below.

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. Dont have anything bad to say, great work environment and friendly/collaborative team members. Loved the work I did too!

    Cons

    Nothing really negative beyond that it seems a very senior company. Not many young people worked there so it was difficult to network those people closer to an intern's age.

    Advice to Management

    Be more adaptable with your interns. They are able to take on more work than you expect, just like your employees, so feel free to give them harder and more real-work tasks.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company with great people. DO not micro manage at all and really let you balance your personal life with your work life

    Cons

    Limited career development. Very tough to climb the corporate ladder. Must move to specific cities to have a chance at moving up on certain teams.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent company to work for. Headquarters of parent company (Exelon) is a plus. Lots of opportunities compared to most large companies

    Cons

    Employees don't care. Laziness is rampant. The industry is boring. Growing business is next to impossible. Workers are anti social.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. The industry is bad. If I were a young person I would avoid at all costs. No young person wants to be a contracted worked. Hire people as full time employees, if they prove they are good.

    Pros

    Good life-work balance. No pressure in a utility style company.

    Cons

    The company is very hierarchical and political. The internal competition makes coordination difficult. The company keeps losing strong and experienced employees and will soon be taken over by politicians. Wrong decisions are made everyday and taking over by Exelon is the worst thing that happens to a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of managers.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent company culture. Good benefits. I was laid off when my department was eliminated, but I was allowed to stay on the payroll until I was fully vested in my 401K and Pension. I received severance pay and out placement as well, so all in all i was treated very well.

    Cons

    it was hard to communicate with the folks in upper management to discuss issues we we were having in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Get out in the field more often to see what issues your sales people have to deal with.

    Pros

    Very bright people, opportunities to learn a lot about the industry, multiple career tracks, and competitive pay.

    Cons

    More focused on preserving what they have than embracing industry changes.

    Advice to Management

    Explore more opportunities leveraging your best employees to keep them interested and challenged.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group as a contractor

    Pros

    Good office location. Convenient mall downstairs

    Cons

    The parent company (Exelon) is still buying other small companies so downsizing has been a factor for over 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your employees. You can't downsize and expect the same results of work. Customers are leaving in bulk and you're losing good workers to your competition.
