    Pros

    The people are great to work with

    Cons

    Union protection causes subordinates to make way more money than management and work less hours with far less responsibility

    Advice to Management

    Balance work life.

    Pros

    Health Benefits are the only positive that I experienced while at Constellation Energy. The only other thing that comes close to a "Pro" is the work/life balance.

    Cons

    As stated in the "Pros" of work/life balance, the reason that the hours are low is because senior management does not push employees to strive to perform at a higher level.

    Advancement opportunities are very limited.

    Information sharing (re: to the business and employee's performance) is very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding employee complacency and focus on the employees with the knowledge and determination. Constellation also needs to focus on adding valuable talent and not just "button pushers".

    Pros

    They have a great benefits package medical sick leave and other non-monetary benefits. Had satellite offices in many cities as well.

    Cons

    Company was not very responsible in spending
    Lies to employees about the financial shape and current status
    Horrible severance package if you get laid off

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees and might avoid pitfalls. Stay within energy and not go outside core with trading energy with investment banks.

    Pros

    Overall good company with good benefits and systems in place.

    Cons

    Baltimore. infighting between departments. Lack of 360 degree reviews. White man's club. No training. Departments can operate in isolation and allow a dictator to flourish. This and the resulting turnover can go unnoticed or ignored as long as the department produces. Fairness is not a top priority and relationships matter very much.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for feedback of direct management in the review process to avoid breeding dictators.

    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

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

    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

    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.

  10. Great pay and benefits; challenging environment

    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.

  11. Good pay, merger creates a lot of issues

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    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
