    I worked at Constellation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible workplace, GREAT benefits, telecommuting potential, location is amazing, the company is all about sports and fun! You work with some really good people who care about their employees. It's not really a hard place to work because management is so busy.

    Cons

    Not very diverse.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Really great company to work for. Dont have anything bad to say, great work environment and friendly/collaborative team members. Loved the work I did too!

    Cons

    Nothing really negative beyond that it seems a very senior company. Not many young people worked there so it was difficult to network those people closer to an intern's age.

    Advice to Management

    Be more adaptable with your interns. They are able to take on more work than you expect, just like your employees, so feel free to give them harder and more real-work tasks.

    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.

    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 (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent company to work for. Headquarters of parent company (Exelon) is a plus. Lots of opportunities compared to most large companies

    Cons

    Employees don't care. Laziness is rampant. The industry is boring. Growing business is next to impossible. Workers are anti social.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. The industry is bad. If I were a young person I would avoid at all costs. No young person wants to be a contracted worked. Hire people as full time employees, if they prove they are good.

    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.
