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

    Pros

    Exelon is a passionate company that truly cares about the service we provide to our customers. The company is looking for ways to innovate technology internally for our employees and externally for our customers. In addition Exelon's compensation and benefits packages are some of the best in the industry. There is a ton of opportunity for internal growth and movement into new fields and different operating companies.

    Cons

    Hours can be demanding when project work needs to be completed, but that should be expected. It can take sometime to get contracts, projects work, and decisions made, but again in such a large organization in the nuclear space it is important to have the right checks and balances in place that create this.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on our culture and employees. It is important to not only evolve as a company for our external customers, but also for our employees. It has been great to see offices being more progressive and flexible; even if it is the small things like allowing jeans in the office or working remote when there are no in person meetings that day.

    I worked at Exelon full-time

    Pros

    In the corporate office, there are good people who try to do good work...

    Cons

    ...but dysfunction and high turnover in leadership positions is a barrier that prohibits the good people from doing their best work. "Work like balance" is talked about, but is non-existent. Unsure if senior leadership is made aware of the real challenges, due to heavy politics at play.

    job security not great in IT areas. Currently doing a lot of outsourcing over seas. Constellation employees slowly being pushed out or laid off.
