Current Employee - Financial Analyst

I have been working at Exelon full-time for less than a year

Pros

Exelon markets itself as a leader in the future of energy. In fact, they are. The bulk of their energy portfolio is nuclear which is a zero emission fuel source which will be vital as we (hopefully)... move away from fossil fuels. Additionally, they sell potential staff on competitive benefits, growth opportunity, and diversity. Generally, these are catch-all phrases that sound great on paper but are never put into action. Exelon legitimately does have above-market pay and benefits. Base comp, retirement, etc. are all above market and they also leverage their size to get some really cool fringe benefits as well! Further, there is ample opportunity for growth within your department and company-wide. They offer analytics, learning modules, tuition assistance, and plenty of inter-departmental groups. Lastly, diversity is key here. Exelon aims to mimic the communities they are located within so you truly do get a wide range of backgrounds, races, ethnicity, and just overall personalities here. It makes our company great.

Cons

Sometimes due to company size things move a little slow and there can also be unfair work balance between teams.

Advice to Management

Keep it up! My only advice would be to modernize some processes (and tech) and teach teams to delegate work within so that everyone stays busy and motivated.

Current Employee - General and Administrative

I have been working at Algenol Biofuels full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- Smart, driven colleagues who are passionate about their work - Most employees re-located to the area to work at Algenol, so there is a strong friendship community at work - Not a lot of... bureaucracy/red tape - easy to get answers quickly - Generous salary/benefits - Necessary resources (personnel, equipment) are always made available. - Corporate efforts are made to foster positive culture - The potential of this company is extraordinary

Cons

- Because the company is a private R&D company, there is no revenue and the operating budget is dependent upon fundraising. While the company has always been successful in this regard, it can be... unsettling to not know from year to year how this is going to work out. - Some Managers are strong and some are weak; the employee experience with Management is inconsistent depending on which dept you work in.

Advice to Management

Communicate all the way down the chain. Sometimes communication seems to stop at the Director level.
