    Constellation Energy Group

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsChallenging work that I enjoy.

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

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

    Project Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Ontario, NY

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou 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

    Summer Intern (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsThough 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.

    ConsI 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 Senior ManagementInstead 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.

    Decent place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsStable 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    Cons"Old" and outdated company policy and benefits is not keeping up with the trend of the electronic age.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 Senior ManagementEmbrace the new generation of workers. Learn from companies like google to retain young talents.

    Company with great benefits

    Director (Former Employee) Aliso Viejo, CA

    ProsExcellent 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.

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

    Great internship program, great company culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD
