Pros

The benefits were good, pay scale was fair and opportunity to show talents were encouraged.

Cons

Unfortunately, two divisions of the company were dissolved. Thus, numberous people were let go. Including yours truely. This was a corporate decision due to economic reasons,

Advice to Management

Since these positions were being eliminated, I wish more assistance to finding another position within or outside of the company could have been given.

    Pros

    Generally, it has a good professional work environment, excellent benefits and flexible work schedules. For talented employees there are opportunities at the parent company Pepco Holding Inc.

    Cons

    Management has made some bad business decisions over the last 6-7 years, including winding down a division that was making money hand over fist even through the wind down and demanded excessive growth too soon of the other division that could never be like the one they threw away. So, lately, business has been in a serious down turn with significant layoffs in late 2012. As a result employee moral is low and the ones left standing have increased workload demands.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the excess executive overhead. There are too many chiefs. One business president or chief operating officer is enough.


  2. Ineffective management and chaos

    Pros

    Could get some notable resume experience

    Cons

    Given the possibilities of the Energy Conservation Measures possible today, utility ownership and energy management is an oxymoron and it shows. The constant one way flow of bureaucracy and passive aggressive attitudes from the parent company are inappropriate for the business model in general. To make matters worse, they get filtered through an ineffective hierarchy of management with no actual "management " skills before they get to you. This is one of those companies where everyone is so busy trying to not look back to one guy, that there is no room for genuine teamwork or alliances. They just laid off 100 people and gave everyone from the second rung down a pay cut. Trying to stay objective? Try googling them for law suits and civil rights class action suits.

    Advice to Management

    Why give advice to someone who already knows everything?
