A disappointing place to work with high turnover and constant instability

(Former Employee)

Pros-Excellent yearly bonus package.
-Flexibility to work off-site (which is also a con, see below).
-Nice people to work with for the most part.
-If you like to travel both with a lot of notice or little notice, then this is definitely the right company to work for.

Cons-Very high turnover due to low morale, burnout, bad management, and a variety of other reasons.
-You have to constantly battle and fight for a reasonable budget to complete or maintain projects delegated by senior leadership. Yet the travel budget is astronomical - most (but of course not all) business trips that are assigned could be done over the phone or on Skype or a product like it, if the company reevaluated the cost of implementing a video conferencing tool versus how many thousands of dollars they are wasting on air fare, bar binging, hotels, etc.
-Culture is stiff, impersonal, unhealthy and does not promote employee wellness or personal health at all. There is no on-boarding for new employees or even any type of HR presence at all. You're expected to be on-call around the clock and when groups get together through travel there is extreme binge drinking (many times on the company dime), from employees of all ages not just the 20-somethings.
-Management expectations are completely unrealistic, which drives people to work way beyond their capacity (and many times burn out) or to never feel a sense of completion or satisfaction.
-Very frequent movement of teams and changes in reporting structure, which is often interpreted by employees that management doesn't know what they are doing.
-Absolutely no work-life balance for people who are truly working hard (some people actually aren't and try hard to fake the fact that they are not hard-working). Everyone is granted with off-site access so even during extreme and stressful situations such as hurricanes and states of emergency, employees are expected to be working.
-Since right before Exelon bought the company, there has been very little room to move or grow into a new position, there are very few promotional opportunities, and many people feel "stuck" or even worse, worried about whether they will even have a job. Many times when people leave, their job is not back-filled and the work gets pushed out to the remaining team members who are already overworked.
-During occasional road closing/horrendous traffic events because of national or large-scale events in Baltimore, Maryland employees are never advised to work off-site (even though it would make for a more productive work day), but when similar events take place in regional offices, there is more sensitivity.

Advice to Senior ManagementCovered in the cons section above, the main point is that there is a lack of work-life balance, which results with low morale, burnout, resentment, and a high turnover rate -- in turn, you are wasting money by not treating your employees like people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good people but corporate policies stink

    Analyst II (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group full-time


    Pros: Team members are great, for the most part. Working at a Nuclear… 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… Advice to Senior Management: Stop squeezing every inch of work from your people without duly… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
