I have been working at Pepco Holdings

Pros

well, they hire people over 50

Cons

the lower level staff are treated like I imagine they were in 1950. they nickel and dime the lower level people. (won't pay for some people's lunches during 12 hour storm duty- but of course they worked - where would you go in a blizzared?)
There is a lot of talk about diversity- constant. but it really is not a very diverse place when you look at it. Senior execs do what they want. very very wierd. good place for customer service reps and engineers I guess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get into the 20th if not the 21st century.

    I have been working at Pepco Holdings

    Pros

    Well, some of the benefits are good.

    Cons

    This is a very very difficult to work right now. A lot of the employees have been there for 20-30 years. Pepco is much disliked by almost everyone right now. They are focused on profit and have neglected some areas that have created reliability problems. Leadership says they have turned that around. The recent storm was a failure for Pepco in the view of the public and policy makers. Staff spends significant time and resources responding to hearings, etc. and attack. The focus is profit for the few. The environment if really depressing. Miles of cubes. Bland. I have never seen a culture like this. No birthday celebrations, nobody EVER takes off early, few people take lunch, and people sometimes never leave the building all day. It is very claustrophobic to me to stay in the building around cubes all day. The location is near metro, but very much in the city- noisy. Not a tree in sight.

    People don't seem to talk to each other. No common place to hang out. The kitchen on my floor is very unappealing-. No cafeteria. Noplace to gather or meet people from the rest of the company.

    The few top Executives earn literally millions. They talk about diversity ALL the time. But I do not see it. Depends what ethnic group you might be in. But they do talk about it incessantly. A lot of middle aged workers, which actually can be good. You ought to think very carefully about going there at this time. Historically Pepco has been a great company, Right now, terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    where is the REAL diversity? Since the top people earn more than some countries, it hurts the little people. We are waiting to hear about "austerity" in the face of small rate increases, etc. But who is living austerely? The people earning millions? PULEASE!
