    The management is nice. Good salaries and opportunities.

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

    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 worked at Constellation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has some great benefits. They recently went through a restructuring and improved the benefit package. The company also tries to hold company wide meetings on a regular basis to keep you informed of the company's progress.

    Cons

    There is no team work. Everyone seems to be trying to get recognition for themselves and not working together as they should.

    Pros

    Very high profile company in Baltimore with some of the best employees around.

    Industry was rocky and the stock was perilous at times. As there was some reduction in force, the morale was low when I left. However, I understand it's better now.

    Better communication across the enterprise.
