    Pros

    Very good work environment: nice and helpful co-workers and excellent life-work balance. The low cost of living in Baltimore makes the living standard remarkable.
    Management is demanding but values work-life balance at the same time. The work on the trade floor is exciting and interesting. Opportunities to learn a lot and grow professionally.

    Cons

    Current office building maybe a bit old but that should be fixed soon with the new building in Harbour East (which looks awesome).

    I have been working at Constellation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constellation offers a competitive benefits package.

    Cons

    Constellation generally hires contractors for long-term assignments. Upon completion of their contract term, instrumental employees are rarely offered a permanent employment. This causes disruptions in the workflow process and also contributes to negativity in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in hardworking, long-term contractors who have been loyal to the Constellation.

    Passionate people. Passionate leadership. Company focused on employee growth and development if you take ownership of your own career. Good benefits. Work-life flexibility strong in certain departments.

    Cons

    Baltimore-centric but getting better. Advancement challenges if you're not in a major office location.

    I have been working at Constellation full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly and smart people to work with, a very good experience for someone that wants to get into the energy/commodity business and learn details of pricing contracts and being part of an active market participant. Better quality of life than most big cities.

    Cons

    being a utility company, Exelon is not a risk taker in energy markets.

    Pros

    Flexible workplace, GREAT benefits, telecommuting potential, location is amazing, the company is all about sports and fun! You work with some really good people who care about their employees. It's not really a hard place to work because management is so busy.

    Cons

    Not very diverse.

    Advice to Management

    Take out some of the layers and get to know your staff better.

    I worked at Constellation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found that managers across the board, including my own, gave interns ample opportunities to meet and network with senior people across different departments. This is incredibly helpful as Constellation is a complicated organization with employees on the retail side doing something completely different than those on the wholesale side. In this sense, networking allowed other interns and I to see many different aspects of the company to get a true sense of the energy business.

    Cons

    For the most part, interns aren't given much work or responsibility. The industry and employees can seem dull or uninterested at times.

    Advice to Management

    Give interns more work and responsibility
