    Pros

    Decent benefits, opportunity to work closely with C-level management, stable work environment.

    Cons

    The nuclear group is a great place to be if you are a nuclear engineer, but not a place for a finance professional. Though the team is made up of smart and talented people, there are very limited opportunities for growth

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

    Pros

    1. If you like big companies with free perks like soda, coffee, snacks in the lunch room then you'll like CEG. There's also the occasional free lunch.

    2. Social environment for the most part. You're free to chitchat with your neighbors and socialize.

    3. No micro-management. Take breaks as you need them, and just get your work done. Results are everything here.

    4. Training is offered as they see fit.

    5. One of the top Energy companies on the east coast, and a great learning experience in general. People are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    1. Meetings are plentiful, and rather dull. Follow up meetings are commonplace.

    2. Difficult to differentiate yourself. You're left to find your own path in the company with little guidance.

    3. Meet your own people, and build up your own network to survive. Employees have been w/ the company for a long time, but most won't reach out initially.

    Advice to Management

    Show that you value your contractors. They are part of the team as well.

    I have been working at Constellation as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Constellation has an amazing work environment in the heart of downtown Chicago. The people are incredibly friendly and hardworking. I learned a lot from my internship there.

    Cons

    Constellation got taken over by Exxelon and they went from constantly looking for employees to having no open marketing positions very quickly.

    I have been working at Constellation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fortune 500, brand recognition, decent salary once you move up the ranks, nice downtown location, management is personable, tuition reimbursement (now it takes three years to forgive(1/3 a year), generous sick leave, average 401k match

    Cons

    Difficult to move up the ranks (when the company was smaller it was a lot easier), feel like a number, not a person, work environment is like a factory floor or sardine can, have to pay for parking, bureaucracy, no recognition for advanced degrees, organization is so large you never know who to go to, office gets so loud you can't hear yourself think.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a more comfortable work environment (ex. cubicles, white noise). Currently the offices are set up in rows like a factory floor, no privacy, and extremely loud at times (disruptive). Provide more cross-training opportunities so people have more exposure to different areas and have back up for when they are out of the office.

    Pros

    Many good people and decent money. Its like working with a big family.

    Cons

    Healthcare Benefits took a turn for the worse 2 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    There is a need to focus more on the people and not so much on the mighty dollar.


  9. "An amazing experience combined with respect from co-workers."

    Pros

    Many opportunities
    Ability to advance
    Great compensation for good performance
    A team atmosphere with respect for each employee

    Cons

    Sometimes knowledge is not shared adequately
    Interns can be looked upon as a nuisance

    Advice to Management

    The leadership team provides quality feedback, necessary support, and a helping hand in creating work life balance. They are trustworthy and competent. You won't find managers who cannot step in to complete an employees tasks in an emergency or who doesn't know their staff and their areas of responsibility. This management team sets the bar high for other companies.

    Pros

    Lots of room to grow due to the retiring work force. Also the salary is good and the people are very good and enjoyable to work with. I get the feeling that most workers would do a lot for each other.

    Cons

    The benefits (health care) were recently reduced, but that is more common with the new rules. Also the demands of the work week can often exceed the normal 40 hours.

    Pros

    The management is nice. Good salaries and opportunities.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not great. A lot of overtime for no additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    The merger has created a lot of additional work, which means we need more staff.
