Pros

I have had a really set of good bosses to work for in the 8 years I have been there, only 1 bad boss. My latest boss really stresses and helps ensure that the work life balance has been achieved. Pay is very good for the area and the field I am in. Vacation is also a definite plus. You need to enforce and embrace the safety conscious work environment at all of Exelon's Nuclear facilities. Safety, Security, and Training are very big parts of Exelon Nuclear. The Information Technology part of Exelon is definitely a good place to be.

Cons

You have to have a really good boss to work for to make the job enjoyable and you need to have drive and determination for your field. Exelon Nuclear Management really stresses and tries to ensure that the work life balance has been achieved. Pay is very good for the area but you need to be willing to put in the extra time and step up to the plate when you are needed. Vacation is also a definite plus, but you might have to sacrifice it from time to time for an urgent problem or project. You need to enforce and embrace the safety conscious work environment at all of Exelon's Nuclear facilities. Safety, Security, and Training are very big parts of Exelon Nuclear.

Advice to Management

Just help employees fulfill the work/life balance that is stressed.

    Pros

    With a shift in focus to energy independence, non-fossil energy sources are becoming increasingly important. Exelon Corporation is at the forefront of utility companies by providing its customers with a diversified set of energy sources, solar, hydro, natural gas, and nuclear. It's a company that is very environmentally conscious, has a wide range of career oppurtunities, and is consistently growing.

    Cons

    There are downsides to any company and Exelon is no exception. Employees can be expected to work more than the standard work week (50hrs+, nights, weekends), however, these sacrifices don't go unrewarded. Employees are recognized through company awards, bonuses, and significant raises.

    Advice to Management

    If the company is to grow and continually expand into new areas, it must make an increased effort to attract and retain its new talent. This generation has a different mind set, plenty of young professionals find it hard to stick with one position for an extended period of time. The company should try a rotational program where individuals can experience different career oppurtunities.

    Pros

    Exelon is a Fortune 150 company with a wealth of other accolades under its belt as far as employee treatment goes. They can boast several features in magazines, websites, and other noteworthy sources and proudly hold titles such as "One of the best Companies with which to begin an IT Career." Exelon's also a very diverse company, sporting copious talent from all walks of life and ensuring everyone has a chance to advance and move to big things. Additionally (and this is kind of an inside tip), fresh off of all their business deals and the merger between ComEd and PECO, Exelon is looking to bounce back from the hiring freeze caused by all that activity so they're not being TOO stringent on who they hire. They're also very employee satisfaction oriented...searching for new ideas and ways to make the lives of their current employees better as well as keeping an ear out for what attracts young new talent coming out of college. Plus, working with Exelon comes with many benefits: special types of bank accounts, discounts on some common and somewhat necessary goods and services, and more. As I've said, they treat their employees very well, and the pay is not bad at all either.

    Cons

    From an the standpoint of an IT employee...there's room for advancement and promotion within the company...lots of it, but Exelon's IT deployment is more utilitarian than anything. Not a lot of cutting edge, innovative stuff going on there, much of your work will go toward maintaining the current software and infrastructure or finding a new means to an end. If you want to do more design and innovation type things, then your best bet is to try to work for Corporate headquarters, based in Chicago.

    Advice to Management

    Very little if anything. Its a very well run company with its eye out and a lot of support for its employees. One of those places that can grow on you, become family like; as is evident by the drives of very faithful employees they have their, many of whom have served Exelon (or one of its many parts before Exelon's formation) for 35 years or more.
