    Pros

    Excellent place to work with access to most levels of management and leadership. Also great culture of learning and superior performance is reinforced within the organization.

    Cons

    Working environment is great, but career development paths could be laid out a little better. Competitive environment and work life balance can be tough to maintain sometimes, but its nothing out of the ordinary in any other organization.

    I have been working at Exelon Power Team

    Pros

    The people who work here are by and large decent, nice people.
    The benefits are good.
    The company facilities are nice and employees are given a number of perks.

    Cons

    People who started with Power Team early on did very well for themselves. Big bonuses and easy promotions. The result today is that the talent at the senior level is mixed at best. Good employees that came in later get stuck at the lower ranks, and feel like they are not rewarded fairly compared to some of their peers. In general, the trading and marketing side of the power business is over-hyped, with a lot of buzz words and impressive sounding lingo, but not a lot of clear contributions to the company's bottom line. This is certainly true of Power Team, where it seems like there has not been much accountability over the years. It can't go on like this forever. If the merger with Constellation goes through, Power Team gets the axe. Too many years of high SG&A and mediocre performance was going to lead to this sooner or later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The wheels were slowly starting to come off before the Constellation merger but you did nothing to right the situation. If the merger somehow falls apart, get some balls and fix the place. Everybody knows a lot of people who work there are not pulling their own weight.

    Pros

    Everyone in the company is respectful and professional. No matter what posiiton you are in, you are not treated as just a number. Even the interns are given due respect.

    Cons

    Location of Kennett Square is about 30-45 minutes away from a major city. If you are an urban young professional, this may affect your social life if you are working long and hard hours because of the amount of time it take sto get back home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a great working experience. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone to work for.

    I worked at Exelon Power Team

    Pros

    A huge breadth of knowledge will be gained within a short amount of time and you know that what you do has an impact on both the company and the community. Pay is good and benefits are very good for full time employees as well. The ability to work remotely is also a big benefit.

    Cons

    During the summer I worked there they laid off several hundred employees. It was done very tastefully and well communicated with transparency at every level, but still a huge morale killer.

    There is ability for advancement, but it is not rapid, and there are quite a few entrenched employees and managers left, even after the lay-offs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should interact with the low level employees more and not hold grudges as often.
