    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.

    Pros

    Many opportunities
    Ability to advance
    Great compensation for good performance
    A team atmosphere with respect for each employee

    Cons

    Sometimes knowledge is not shared adequately
    Interns can be looked upon as a nuisance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership team provides quality feedback, necessary support, and a helping hand in creating work life balance. They are trustworthy and competent. You won't find managers who cannot step in to complete an employees tasks in an emergency or who doesn't know their staff and their areas of responsibility. This management team sets the bar high for other companies.

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow due to the retiring work force. Also the salary is good and the people are very good and enjoyable to work with. I get the feeling that most workers would do a lot for each other.

    Cons

    The benefits (health care) were recently reduced, but that is more common with the new rules. Also the demands of the work week can often exceed the normal 40 hours.

    Pros

    The management is nice. Good salaries and opportunities.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not great. A lot of overtime for no additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The merger has created a lot of additional work, which means we need more staff.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Constellation/BGE encourage creativity and diversity. The employees and leadership are demonstrate the core values. Safety and customer satisfaction are critical, but are not achieved on the backs of the linemen. There are many opportunities. I left to explore other opportunities, but would return in a heart beat.

    Cons

    Constellation has faced some financial challenges, but weathered the storms well. It is a customer service industry which the general public doesn't always understand or appreciate. If you work for BGE, expect some impact to your work-life balance during storms and other emergent events.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate changes to employees. Recent merger communications have been well thought out and implemented. Learn from feedback provided during the 2010 union campaign to avoid similar employee sentiment.
