    Pros

    Good salary

    Good people
    Opportunities to move and advance
    Many geographical locations in the US
    Recognized as a leader in the energy industry.

    Cons

    Long hours often with requirements to be on call or respond on nights and weekends when there is a plant issue.
    Atmosphere can be depressing at times due to many disgruntled, over worked, or stressed employees. The result of too much work in combination with the business need to reduce manpower resources.

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

    Pros

    The company has a younger workforce than I've experienced with competitors leading to a much less stodgy atmosphere. In most departments, the team is focused on working together towards an end goal and supporting each other along the way.

    Cons

    Exelon is known for its management model which is great, but it drives a very process and procedure atmosphere/culture. Before you know it, you'll be talking in GOSP. It may not be the right fit for everyone.

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

    Pros

    Great pay, vacation, benefits (401k and pension), some managers allow flexible schedules. Good training and high job security.

    Cons

    Requires un-paid on call rotation. High stress environment around outages. Work life balance can vary with manager discretion. Closing 3 of their plants in the next 3 years. No work from home policy, some employees work from home full time, others are not permitted to do so at all.

    Advice to Management

    Get better alignment on work life balance. Improve on boarding process. Optimize new employee training.

    Pros

    Great advancement opportunities because they look at people as disposable so there is always rook to move up.

    Cons

    The knives are sharp and they come from all angles. Backstabbing is the core of the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Stop believing the lies you tell yourselves and stay listening to the uncomfortable truths you are ignoring.

    Pros

    Great pay, bonuses, benefits, insurance, and schedule. I got this job right out of the navy, so Monday through Friday 9 to 5 with all holidays off is pretty great.

    Cons

    Exelon is shutting down or threatening to shut down plants in the Midwest at an alarming rate. The company has promised job relocation or severance. But if you don't take the job, you are voluntarily quitting and won't get the severance.
