I have been working at Exelon full-time for less than a year
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.
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.
Opportunities to manage your own projects. Very friendly and supportive co-workers. Safety-oriented culture. Company as a whole seems to value their interns and invests in opportunities for them,... whether that be projects or networking opportunities. Compared to a lot of my friends who interned at other companies, I felt like I had one of the best experiences due to the type of projects they allowed their interns to be a part of.
Some days are extremely hectic and some days you have almost nothing to do, but that's somewhat expected in a manufacturing environment. Some job locations are remote.
Advice to Management
Make the mentoring program more structured. Sometimes my mentor was hard to get in contact with. Other than that, keep up the great work!
