    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fortune 500, brand recognition, decent salary once you move up the ranks, nice downtown location, management is personable, tuition reimbursement (now it takes three years to forgive(1/3 a year), generous sick leave, average 401k match

    Cons

    Difficult to move up the ranks (when the company was smaller it was a lot easier), feel like a number, not a person, work environment is like a factory floor or sardine can, have to pay for parking, bureaucracy, no recognition for advanced degrees, organization is so large you never know who to go to, office gets so loud you can't hear yourself think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a more comfortable work environment (ex. cubicles, white noise). Currently the offices are set up in rows like a factory floor, no privacy, and extremely loud at times (disruptive). Provide more cross-training opportunities so people have more exposure to different areas and have back up for when they are out of the office.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Decent compensation and competitive benefits package. Constellation is a large company with good geographic diversity. It has many excellent people to learn from and the company encourages information sharing.

    Cons

    The geographic diversity can be a problem in that it makes it difficult to develop the relationships necessary to be effective in your role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constellation's management suffers from the same problem that many management groups have: they think that their leadership is the answer to the company's problems.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Good coworkers, great salary level for the greater DC area. Depending on which department you work for, your contributions may be recognized. Generally good level of vacation days. So far, unlimited sick days (but can he checked upon if requested by management).

    Cons

    Depending on who you have as a manager, you may not get necessary guidance. This is changing though. As the company undergoes a merger, there will be plenty of ambiguity. In some departments, contribution by the non-management level may go unnoticed. Performance evaluation from the direct report (i.e. one level above) can be trumphed by senior management to match the department objectives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be fair to all in promotions and performance evaluations.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Got promotted quickly, made more money than I thought at my age. Average bonus was 15% even when year was bad. Had to fight for the promotion, but they were fair and gave it to me.

    Cons

    Poor communication from management. Constantly try to outsource. Restructure company every few months. No clear direction and you never know if you will have a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a strategy and make it clear and stick with it.
