Pros

BGE serves central MD and is one of the nation's earliest electric & the 1st gas utility. They have a long history of stability and community involvement, and the employees take pride in and are committed to BGE (which has always been and remains union-free).

Cons

BGE's upper management has gotten away from its team-oriented approach and has put lofty goals ahead of the welfare of its work force. Organizationally, the individual business units operate independently, without an understanding of the roles and functions of the other units, so often they are at loggerheads and do not see the whole picture. while they publicly talk about innovation and "thinking outside the box", they do not empower their employees to be creative, or even proactive, and anyone who does not toe the company line is regarded as not a team player. Also, the company doesn't place much emphasis on training or career advancement of amployees (other than engineers). They use questionable performance management and evaluation practices that are inconsistently and/or selectively applied.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Believe in your staff of dedicated, long-time employees and give them the development tools and lattitude to contribute to the company's success.

    Pros

    There is definitely a work life balance and a very flexible work schedule. The atmosphere is very relaxed and not pressure filled.

    Cons

    I do not think there is a clear path for advancement and management does not layout the steps necessary to get to the next level. There is also not enough mentoring on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BGE needs to find a way to maintain young talent. The current structure makes it difficult to learn about other areas in the business.
