    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.

    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.

    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.

    Challenging work that I enjoy.

    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.
