    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are very good compared to other employment opportunities in this area.

    Cons

    There is no compensation for hours worked beyond 40. It is expected and normal that an employee will work 50 - 60 hours a week without compensation or flex time. Work/Life balance are hollow corporate catch phrases and has no real meaning or due consideration from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees for all hours worked or at least hire and provide staffing levels that support 40 hour work weeks.

    I have been working at Constellation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is none. Pay is acceptable.

    Cons

    The environment is really bad in Constellation Energy. You work on week end and late every day. Management does not care about work life balance. Think twice before you accept your offer letter. Do not just look at the salary as you will be disappointed. Management have even problem have people to accept offers as when you see how people work in company you will change your mind.

    Advice to Management

    Have a second look at the work life balance.

    Pros

    Good life-work balance.
    No pressure in a utility style company.

    Cons

    The company is very hierarchical and political.
    The internal competition makes coordination difficult.
    The company keeps losing strong and experienced employees and will soon be taken over by politicians.
    Wrong decisions are made everyday and taking over by Exelon is the worst thing that happens to a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of managers.

    Pros

    Overall good company with good benefits and systems in place.

    Cons

    Baltimore. infighting between departments. Lack of 360 degree reviews. White man's club. No training. Departments can operate in isolation and allow a dictator to flourish. This and the resulting turnover can go unnoticed or ignored as long as the department produces. Fairness is not a top priority and relationships matter very much.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for feedback of direct management in the review process to avoid breeding dictators.
