    I have been working at Exelon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, pay, pay; Culture; Diversity and inclusion; great potential to grow personally and professionally; Jon security is a non issue, they very rarely lay off or terminate employees; huge emphasis on safety; The company invests a lot in its work force: any training you can imagine from leadership, to negotiating, etc. Most departments are very well resourced. Overtime is plentiful in busy departments.

    Cons

    Rigid leadership from director level and above. Some departments are not overworked so have challenges like being clique-ey, other departments (mine) are very very busy and employees need to work 50+ hrs a week to stay on top of workload. Innovation is sorely needed, and although senior leadership understands this and are vocal about supporting it somewhere along the line the execution falls apart. Instead of the vertical management model, there needs to be a lot more of horizontal structure, with the highest level executives working in the trenches with individual contributers and owning innovation initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    More horizontal leadership structure is needed. Base pay should be increased for those with high volume of work. There are dozens of software systems we work on, there is a sore need to streamline and invest in technology that enhances communication between all software systems.

    Pros

    Stable, acceptable work hours for pay, reputable company, excellent benefits

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are defined by the whims of department heads - not by an objective, transparent set of metrics. HR is not culturally available to employees- always feels like employees are sticking their neck out and causing trouble for management if they raise an issue with HR.

    Advice to Management

    Culture sucks. Hire better managers.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and benefits.

    Cons

    Favoritism is huge in the department. Unfairness when it comes to how work is divided. Promotions are based on who likes you and not on your knowledge or skill to exceed in that position.

    Advice to Management

    Shake up management. The morale is horrible and no seems to care and that’s not good for the environment. Having department meetings and allowing a true open policy with constructive criticism would help.

    Pros

    High turnover so get to meet new people.

    Cons

    Leadership does not embrace diversity in certain departments. Overworked and underpaid. Once again a sweatshop. The promise to cut costs for shareholder benefit meant cutting jobs which studies show this method ends up costing more in the long term.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, and the benefits will follow.

    I have been working at Exelon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exelon is known to support its employee's personal development and this is predicated with their tuition reimbursement program which is better than other big companies.

    Cons

    No cons, just the reimburse amount after a certain amount is taxed which is fine.

    Advice to Management

    Give some time for employees to work on their personal developlment. There are times when I feel harassed by installers as an engineer, as there is no regard for my quality of life. I also feel that engineers are underpaid amongst their other peers (operations, maintenance FLS and RP tech) within the company which seems very unfair for the amount of impact we have in the organization.
