    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.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Constellation Energy had competitvie salaries and benefits. There was a good worklife balance and workload very reasonable. Overall, OK company to work for.

    Cons

    Employees not always treated with respect they deserve. There is a large focus on networking and politics rather than job performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication with employees would be beneficial. Leadership should be held accountable to the core values of the business.

    Pros

    Challenging work that I enjoy.

    Cons

    Politics of management sometimes seen at odds with making this place a friendly place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit being so bottom line oriented. Profit is important, but you won't make a dime without committed employees. Think longer term strategies.

    Pros

    Excellent pay and very flexible work hours. Great way to meet routinely with Senior Management.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. Expected to mark time and laterally transfer for 10-15 years before moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to take a chance and give young people an oppurtunity to get a change in some Senior Leadership posiitions.

    Rewarding summer internship, depending on which department you work

    Current Employee - Summer Intern in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Though I only worked as an intern, I gathered from my full-time colleagues that Constellation has a competitive and generous compensation package. This includes full tuition reimbursements at local colleges and universities. Furthermore, I worked in downtown Baltimore near Inner Harbor so the location is vibrant and exciting, especially during the summer. Many of my intern friends in other departments were kept very busy and immediately immersed in the company's everyday operations.

    Cons

    I had minimal training and was given very little direction as to what goals I was hired to accomplish. For most of my time there, I was felt quite bored due to lack of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of sending out mass e-mails as the primary way of communicating important issues and changes, find a more effective medium so that it's less impersonal.

    Pros

    Stable career. Good development program for young professionals.

    Cons

    "Old" and outdated company policy and benefits is not keeping up with the trend of the electronic age. Schedule is not as flexible as it can be. Pay is comparatively lower than market worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace the new generation of workers. Learn from companies like google to retain young talents.

    Former Employee - Director in Aliso Viejo, CA

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, much better than other Fortune 500 companies I've worked for. Very family friendly, from plant level to upper management. Most managers encourage participation in company-sponsored events and allow the time to do so.
    Plenty of opportunities for professional development, inside and outside the company.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement unless you know the right people. Management doesn't provide positive feedback . Senior leadership cannot relate to subordinates. Appears to be more cronyism at the top than what I've observed in past companies. No formal mentoring program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Approach diversity within the company seriously, i.e. mentor minority employees. Implement a formal mentoring program. Practice what you preach.

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large stable company, good benefits, vigorous culture, but most people are pretty laid-back (outside of Sales).

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy with all the trappings (has improved recently), can be difficult to advance within the company,
