    Pros

    I have a vast area of opportunity, with an excellent potential for growth, in a commodities market for Gas and Electric, in northern Ohio.

    Cons

    The down side is the longevity of this market and the development of new sources of energy being introduce in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Create and develop new ways to introduce to the market a more decisive campaign to help a sales representative adapt for success and have longer life in this ever changing market.

    I worked at Constellation Energy Commodities full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Was a great place to work. Friendly people, knowledgeable managers and good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Now its all about the imported employees from Exelon. They are not as capable, but have all the management positions and need constant coddling.

    Advice to Management

    Spin off and get rid of Exelon

    Pros

    The benefits in terms of health, dental, and vision insurance was the best I have seen. I can't think of anything else. (listed health, dental, and vision because of the 20 word minimum! that's how little there is!)

    Cons

    They boast a 95% retention rate of over 5 years, but that is taking into consideration that it includes all of their employees including those who work in a power plant, and don't have easy job mobility. The turnover rate at Constellation Energy Commodities is a lot higher, mostly because there is high job dissatisfaction. There is little room for promotion/moving up, there is no firm handle on how to run the business, and the leadership changes are extremely frequent at the topmost level.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being idiots and get on the same page. Actually allow the "open and non-hierarchical culture" that you boast, because I have not see it.

    Pros

    could be a cool place to work if the pace were to pick up and the ivory tower academic projects ceased and we actually focused on making money.

    Cons

    the talent has left the building.
    the 18th floor is out of touch with the realities of the business and the mood of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    You need to enter the no spin zone and stop the ivory-tower showboating. If showboating is rewarded over results and risk-taking Constellation will become all entertainment and no profit. No matter how many town halls, emails from the desk of Mayo, and off-site leadership huzzah love fests you have, when results do not line up management loses credibility. If you want to grow the business at 15% per year (double double 2020) then you need more than showboating and the talented employees right now are only half committed, waiting for the job market ro perk up so they can fly. The taleneted ones will be scooped up first. oh.. and why are people responsible for the crash still in leadership roles?

    Pros

    Large bonus potential; Good work-life balance as long as your manager likes you; Convenient to downtown Baltimore; People in the area know what company you work for

    Cons

    Constellation is portrayed as a greedy company in the local media, so people might think badly of you if they know what company you work for

    Advice to Management

    Managers should not be so blatant about showing favoritism; Management needs to recognize that most people working at the company are not happy

    Pros

    Big boy in Energy (Electricity). Experience of the team. Name carries weight.

    Cons

    Baltimore. Enough said. No training for guys who are new to the business. And they take a bunch of analysts/associates who dont have a fig of an idea of what electricity trading is all about. its all on the job( even the basic things like the databases/sources of information/proprietary tools used as part of daily work. the less we talk about helping ppl to understand the math behind the "exotics" that get executed in the firm the better it is) so it take take 2-3 years before one can look one self in the mirror and be confident about her/his capability.
