    Pros

    Large stable company, good benefits, vigorous culture, but most people are pretty laid-back (outside of Sales).

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy with all the trappings (has improved recently), can be difficult to advance within the company,

    Pros

    Good pay, good balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    A lot of inter office politics, constant delays to work, no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Currently the company is run on many levels by the "Good-O-Boys" club. People are shuffled around and dismissed based on who is happy with them or who is unhappy with them personally, not professionally. Most of the personnel are at retirement age, but have not retired due to the looses taken to their 401k.

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

    Pros

    The energy industry typically pays more than many other industries--at least locally. I got a significant bump with a lower title and less hours worked when taking a position here. There were great opportunities for learning at this company, depending on the division you work in.

    Cons

    There was a feeling that it was tough to get promoted, no matter how hard one worked. Like many places, the politics were frustrating at times. Bad behavior from higher-level management was often times ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on office culture and listening and responding to feedback from your employees. Encourage higher ethical standards from your leadership.

    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 pay, fascinating industry tackling important and societal challenge

    Cons

    Nothing gets done in this organization
    and if someone gets the courage to do anything, the initiative gets killed ...

    there is no creativity, no constructive conversation,
    every talented person left the company. the people that are left are just fighting over the same ideas that have been swirling around for the last 5 years, but none of them are even capable of pulling these ideas off, or are too sheepish to try. Employee turnover is very high.

    The industry is getting disrupted... and they are just paralyzed, and whining about the status of the industry, instead of seeing it as an opportunity, and leading the transformation of this industry.

    I have never seen so much value destruction in front of my eyes in my entire career. It's deplorable.

    Advice to Management

    Be responsible.
    Create value
    Put the company's interest before your own petty career
