    Pros

    The company is accommodating and hours are generally easy. You are provided with tools and resources.

    The company makes strong efforts to follow "best practices".

    Cons

    There is a lack of actual work to be done and a too much time is spent creating budgets, evaluating performance to budget, etc. Not enough time is spent trying to make money.

    Politics dominate and voicing a dissenting opinion is looked upon poorly.

    People manage up and your contact with your boss will be limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on doing actual work and making money. Don't worry so much about Wall Street and the stock price. If you create a renewed focus on creating new revenue, the stock price will follow.

    I worked at Exelon

    Pros

    They had good benefits and generous training allowances. On site gyms are a nice perk. Some managers permitted working from home and flexible hours.

    Cons

    I only had one professional manager in the 15+ years I was there and he was moved to a non-management position. I didn't receive my 15% bonus one year because I "missed meetings", although no one could tell me what meetings I missed! HR felt that was OK. That was the same year my stepson was dying from cancer, my stepdaughter was getting married, and I wasn't permitted to take any vacation time. Fortunately that manager left. When I retired, I was the only one that showed up for my exit interview, although it had been requested by HR.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Exelon leadership needs to come out of their ivory tower and get in touch with the people who are actually doing the work..
