    Pros

    Team members are great, for the most part. Working at a Nuclear Power Plant provides interesting work. Job stability. Decent benefits. Free safety shoes!

    Cons

    Weird promotion rules. People who obviously have more talent, skills and responsibilities are often passed over for promotions in favor of old-timers who've been around longer. Merit pay increases are a joke (1% raise doesn't even cover cost of living). Although there is an emphasis on safety, schedule pressures can force people's hands. Work Life balance is a joke: 40 hours a week job really means 50-60 with no extra pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop squeezing every inch of work from your people without duly compensating them. Pay people extra when they are in ERO duty.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.

  10. Overall good place to start a career, but may change depending on merger

    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 Management

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