    I worked at Constellation full-time

    Pros

    The managers were generally nice and made very few unreasonable demands on our time. Some managers were trying to make things better

    Cons

    Sooooo bureaucratic! Every decision involved endless meetings and approvals from endless people from all over the company.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people to make small decisions themselves. Stop the "gotcha" culture that punishes any mistake.

    I worked at Constellation full-time

    Pros

    If you are the top salesperson you may make a reasonable income other than that there is nothing to speak positively about.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. The upper echelon of the company only tries to find ways to screw your contracts over. The moment you actually find a customer with a decent commission and you report it to management it is taken away from you. Happened too many times to count. Territories are small and convoluted. The team you work with only care about themselves. Never trusted anyone in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Change everything. The sales staff never had any faith in management. The turnover rate was ridiculous with constant firing and quitting.

    I have been working at Constellation full-time

    Pros

    I am not complaining about work or what I do but how Americans have been marginalized at Exelon and in particular in Qunat Analytics/Structuring team.

    Cons

    Exelon is probably doing the same thing as Disney did to its employees by replacing the Americans with cheap H1B. I am not at all xenophobic but man when you look around at this place you have at least 30-40% people on H1B or who have gotten their green card through employment at Exelon. Some of them have grown up to be managers and they do not respect Americans and are ready to pass Americans off for an immigrant employee.

    I am sorry but Donald Trump can easily make this place an example of how American workers are being marginalized in favor of cheaper labor. I say cheaper labor as I know of Phds who at the end of the year are working on base salary of ninety thousand dollars a year. That is called wage suppression since it takes about 7 years to get a Phd after your undergraduate studies in STEM field.

    Once I thought about getting my Phd in a technical field but then I realized that I will be competing against the immigrant working for less than six figures after spending 7 years in graduate school. Don't blame American's for realizing the economics which has been made bad by companies like Exelon.

    Hiring immigrants of color or gender is not same as hiring American Blacks, Hispanics and Women.

    I don't want to mention a specific instance as it will identify me but I have been passed over for an immigrant. An immigrant here likes to joke they are cheaper and they are at work all the time... working ..

    Actually there is even a team here which is jokingly called mafia from certain country as it is made up of only people from that particular country.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire Americans and diversify among the American Black, Hispanics and Women in our Quant Analytics and Structuring team and in Exelon in general. There is no reason for any of team to be 30-40% H1Bs or work sponsored green card. There are plenty of Americans around looking to grow their career as well.

    Because of wage pressure and immigrant over use in our company I don't feel compensation or growth opportunities are sufficient in our company and hence I will give low rating below.

    Take out some of the layers and get to know your staff better.

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

    Pros

    Constellation was a great company with excellent benefits, they offered a decent pay structure with annual bonuses dependent on performance.

    Cons

    Due to multiple mergers over the last 10 years, the management team would always change and you would have to re-learn how to interact with those individuals each time. Over the years, the morale became low because the initial problems from the last management team bled over in to the new team and things never got fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your seasoned experienced workers. We understand that its always about the bottom line. However, it is always better to measure twice and cut once.
