    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

    Professional working environment definitely a plus. Not a cut throat working culture at all when I was working there.

    Cons

    Overall communication issue. I am not sure about other functions, but lack of communication between team members and standardization could be one of cons working at Constellation

  5. Constellation is a great overall company to work for, however politics play an integral role in advancing your career.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work environment is relatively low-key as long as you are performing better than expectations.

    Cons

    Leadership micro-manages everything except does not provide the guidance necessary for success.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend more leadership development sessions in order to properly lead their respective teams.

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are good, the workload is usually managaeable, benefits are great.

    Cons

    The only problem is a bad workplace culture; No leadership, Leadership not aware of what is going on.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    A lot of inter office politics, constant delays to work, no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Currently the company is run on many levels by the "Good-O-Boys" club. People are shuffled around and dismissed based on who is happy with them or who is unhappy with them personally, not professionally. Most of the personnel are at retirement age, but have not retired due to the looses taken to their 401k.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The energy industry typically pays more than many other industries--at least locally. I got a significant bump with a lower title and less hours worked when taking a position here. There were great opportunities for learning at this company, depending on the division you work in.

    Cons

    There was a feeling that it was tough to get promoted, no matter how hard one worked. Like many places, the politics were frustrating at times. Bad behavior from higher-level management was often times ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on office culture and listening and responding to feedback from your employees. Encourage higher ethical standards from your leadership.


  9. Good pay, merger creates a lot of issues

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are decent but this has been slowly shifting. Now pensions of legacy CCG employees are being removed in certain areas. Decent vacation and sick.

    Cons

    As mentioned, they recently have been removing the pension in areas of the company even to the old constellation employees (with merger stayed intact until now). Management promotes those whom they favor and not on skill which is very evident in some areas. It's a little bit of sink or swim. High turnover rate of extremely valuable employees creates issues. Also a more flexible work schedule would be appreciated. Must work typical 9-6 unless you have a child in which case it seems okay to leave 30min-1hr early

    Advice to Management

    Communication in company is still an issue. Not enough information is passed down to employees and certain items are heard via rumors in order to learn anything


  10. Decent Company

    Pros

    Good benefits and solid industry.

    Cons

    Very resistant to positive change and too much 'that is the way we have always done it' attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more outside talent.
