    I have been working at Pepco Holdings

    Pros

    Easy to shine amid the dead wood. Secure positions in the regulated company. Takes a lot to be fired. Comfortable. Generally good people just plodding along in their jobs. Some really good people carrying 80% of the workload. Provides lots of different topics of work if self-motivated.

    Cons

    Lots of dead wood. Lack of resources to do job, piling on the work with no recognition. Lots of "inside" promotions and advancements - fair policy in place that allows lots of gaming. Still too much typical old-school utility mentality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and hold employees accountable like your values say. Stop the insider hiring and networking that limits finding talent already in-house. Value inside talent more than outside consulting.

    I worked at Pepco Holdings full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - tons of learning opportunities
    - extremely nice coworkers
    - great work/life balance

    Cons

    - promotion is typically based on tenure, not skill
    - likewise high achievers are not given enough rewards, eg, 3.3% raise for excellent rating vs 3.0% for average rating
    - not very good rotation program

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
