    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Exelon Generation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing. They paid a ton of my money but the crap you go through is not worth it, not worth any of it.

    Cons

    They rule your life and expect you to me here constantly. Good luck ever seeing your family or ever doing anything for yourself, they own you. NEVER WORK HERE.

    Advice to Management

    Get yourself together. This is place is a hell hole and something bad is wound up to happen.

    Pros

    1. Great benefits package (healthcare and 401k benefits were better than anything I have seen since)
    2. Large organization with lots of opportunities for advancement or lateral moves either within the site or between sites.

    Cons

    1. Significant on-call duties as an engineer - get used to having a pager!
    2. Salary progression was slow but fair. Consistent with raises and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more acknowledgment of sacrifices your employees make for the company. The hours can be strenuous but we could easily be working somewhere else for more money and more normal hours.
