    I have been working at Exelon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exelon is a passionate company that truly cares about the service we provide to our customers. The company is looking for ways to innovate technology internally for our employees and externally for our customers. In addition Exelon's compensation and benefits packages are some of the best in the industry. There is a ton of opportunity for internal growth and movement into new fields and different operating companies.

    Cons

    Hours can be demanding when project work needs to be completed, but that should be expected. It can take sometime to get contracts, projects work, and decisions made, but again in such a large organization in the nuclear space it is important to have the right checks and balances in place that create this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on our culture and employees. It is important to not only evolve as a company for our external customers, but also for our employees. It has been great to see offices being more progressive and flexible; even if it is the small things like allowing jeans in the office or working remote when there are no in person meetings that day.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Exelon (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was debriefed on what the branch of the company does and what the previous person who had this position was responsible for. I was given a quick 1 question quiz to reinforce the interviewer's trust that I knew about the company. Relatively cool and not too intense. Wanted answers to questions in the STAR format (Situation Task Assignment Response).
