    I worked at Exelon Generation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great networking experience. People were open to questions, I got to learn a lot from the trainings and my mentor.
    I was assigned to work on a project independently, and presented at the end to executives. Definitely a good learning experience.

    Cons

    The 10 week program wasn't as flexible as it could be. Having an earlier start date can help some projects' outcome.

    Pros

    Benefit is great
    401k marching
    Cash balance plan

    Cons

    Work life balance
    More work to do with people leaving left and right
    Initial training is one year long with 20+ tests with 80% to pass
    High turn over rate
    Knowledge transfer is non existent
    If you don’t go into operation, there is no future to growth.
    Leadership meh, currently there is no business manager and senior manager at system engineering !
    Working hours can be demanding especially when there is a trip of the reactor
    Don’t get paid to over time beside outage ! Not even straight time pay

    Advice to Management

    Don’t make a big deal out of a small thing please. Care about your employee ! Stop over loading them ! I aactually had to attend a 6 counseling sessions due to stress !
    Direct manager to be there more often instead of being at other meetings always
    Hore more people to shift work load !!!!!!!!!

    I have been working at Exelon Generation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really talented and hardworking co-workers.

    Cons

    No growth for people of color. It is a good old boy company. I have plenty of proof to make my case but instead of making a big deal on it I want to leave. HR is not for the employees and they know there is a management issue, but they keep supporting racist manager instead employee. It's really sad because if could be a great company. BTW I will leave on my own after seeing 2 years of open racism.

    Advice to Management

    Not that matters but get diversity training for everyone and for upper management and for HR. HR department is not even doing their jobs to resolve this issue. Open your eyes and resolve the issues instead sending same manger D&I training again and again. That will not prevent people leaving the employee leaving the company working under him. Ask HR why are there no people of color in upper management? When people ask me if they should work there I tell them there will never grow in the company you would get more growth in a fast food restaurant.

    Pros

    - Competitive pay
    - Development for those willing to stand out
    - Daily interdisciplinary interaction and coordination
    - Forward looking (if not a bit overreaching) chiefs and directors

    Cons

    - Big company with typical big company problems, bottom line is king
    - Poor to non-existent work-life balance
    - Piles work onto the most competent individuals while divesting from less driven workers

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, great teamwork. People genuinely care about their work and are very professional. Innovative and challenging job opportunities

    Cons

    The nuclear side is currently downsizing so competition for positions is high. Some non nuclear hires do not like the high amount of regulations you have to deal with in a day to day basis

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to learn the many facets of the job. Don’t pigeonhole yourself and do not be afraid to take a risk. Take every opportunity to learn and broaden your circle of knowledge and influence.

    Pros

    Excellent Pay and competitive benefits. Exelon does a good job keeping employees updated and aggressively looks to increase company diversity. Also, many employee targeted work sponsored activities such as a annual clam-bake.

    Cons

    Communication is sometimes excessive. Expectations are incredibly high, and overtime is often times mandated and unpaid.
    In several instances, the workers are paid more than their direct supervision. Also, several non-qualified personnel are paid more than their qualified counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    As the older generation retires and the younger generation beings to grow into the industry, more attention to morale improvements is going to be required.
