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

    Pros

    Diverse employees make it an exceptionally comfortable work environment. Good pay, and very generous benefits. Lots of opportunities for career movement since it is such a big company - it is even encouraged to work in a new group or position every 2-3 years. Very loyal employee base - many people you talk to have been with the company for 10 years and have no plans of leaving. Pension plan!!! Executive management is very approachable (even to even entry level positions), and they frequent company events. Awesome views from the new Baltimore HQ on the harbor.

    Cons

    The computers are slightly outdated and few people are given work laptops or phones. Having just moved into the new Baltimore HQ I think that will be fixed soon, though. IT isn't the best.

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

    Pros

    Good bonus, decent benefits, people across the business are generally easy to work with

    Cons

    Bad raises (barely cost of living adjustments if that)

    Advice to Management

    Give better raises, which make employees feel that their work and efforts are valued, vs. the bonus which is tied to how the company does overall.

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

    Pros

    Very diverse company to work for. Encourages volunteerism. Plenty of opportunities to move around within the organization. Incredible benefits.

    Cons

    Great intentions on the outside. Huge company to work for - so a lot of silos. Always too many things going on at once, and due to silos of work, lots of duplicated efforts and not always the best communications between the groups. Low salary compared to industry, although, they don't let you know where you are in the salary band, but yet claim to be transparent. If you're not a favorite, you will not advance.

    Great pay and benefits. Cares a lot about volunteering and giving back to the community

    Pros

    Pay is higher than average. Benefits are great. There are opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Management training is mostly a trial and error experience. Not very formal or complete.

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

    Pros

    Plenty to learn, if you get bored you simply aren't trying to learn.

    Cons

    Pay scale upheaval, short staffed, but this may change.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are voluntarily applying to take lower level jobs, but the System Operator jobs have decreased in pay. This seems to be the opposite of logical.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities if you're willing to move, plenty to learn.

    Cons

    Payscale upheaval, low morale. Lackluster treatment of shift workers in PHI.

    Advice to Management

    Operators are leaving in droves for lower positions. Responding with lower pay seems counter intuitive.
