    I have been working at Exelon Generation full-time

    Pros

    Above average pay, but competitors are catching up fast
    Decent benefits, particularly if you're grandfathered into the old pension plans
    Some departments are better than others
    If you are in the union your job and pay are pretty safe

    Cons

    Vague, reactive, uninvolved management, addicted to the buzzwords of the day
    Absolutely no leadership from upper management
    Massively dysfunctional industry
    Ultra-toxic culture in some departments
    Company has given up entirely on work-life balance in the name of cost cutting, but there always seems to be money to create another director or VP spot for someone to sit in until they retire.

    Advice to Management

    You've got to make this a better place to work, or you will literally be shutting down plants because you can't make minimum staffing. EVERYONE is looking for jobs outside the company.
