    Engineer employed in PECO division of Exelon

    Engineer II (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsGenerous salary when compared to other utiliy-based companies for the same position, good benefits, 401(K) and pension, and annual incentive bonus (based on company performance).

    ConsPECO division was downsized greatly ~ 20 years ago, so that the few that are still employed are over-worked, especially during storms. The lines that once defined your job "roles and responsibilities" are easily blurred given the right "business need" at the time. Knowledge level of company as a whole is lacking, and expected to get worse as those with 25, 30,40+ yrs. experience either move on or retire with the majority of the younger engineers having <5 yrs. of experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that your employess are just that, the employees, and do not live and breath PECO/Exelon. Workload should be monitored and kept at a resonable level to maintain efficiency and over-exhaustion of your employees.

    Refrain from speaking to your employees as if it should be automatic that you do "xyz" for "the company", even though it may not be in your initial job scope/responsibilities. Lastly, speak to your employees with respect, and not as if they are your children. This last issue may be more localized to my personal experience, but nonetheless, should be addressed.

    Started out great but went downhill.

    IT Lead Analyst (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

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

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

    Glass Ceiling for Engineers

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsExelon seems to care about training yet you would think that when they invested money in an employee they would make an effort to retain them.

    ConsAs you work at Exelon your pay raises decrease over time and you hit a glass ceiling especially for Engineers. Engineers with 10-30 years of experience are lumped in one category.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at industry and pay accordingly. Many utilities are trying to create artificially lower pay scales for engineers but the demand in this sector is growing fast.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
