    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.

    Pros

    It is a large utility withholding company. However, it is very well managed when it comes to processes and procedures. Your experience will vary based on the location and the company you work.

    Cons

    Top heavy no room to grow. Exactly what you expect from a utility.

    Advice to Management

    Your business model is threatened by DER and a workforce that is growing old. Invest in new technologies that will attract new talent,

    I worked at Exelon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay was very generous, O.T. always available.

    Cons

    As stated above, seems diversity has taken prominence over anything else. To meet goals advancement is given to those that help make quotas over the most qualified for the position. Also a major disconnect between field employees and “leadership” ( I use the term “leadership” loosely as real leaders lead by example). It’s a lead through intimidation culture with supervision feeling as they’re the parent and those under them are the children.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure where to begin as some managers are aware of these issues. They allow this culture to continue and at times even cover for the supervisor ( there buddy ). This keeps them looking good and that big year end bonus coming in.

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

    Pros

    High pay, good insurance, culture at my location is very welcoming.

    Cons

    Hiring/Advancement is highly dependent on gender and race. Blatantly so.
    New employee retirement package is far from competitive
    Constant re-organizations
    Poor work life balance, unpaid duty and required constant availability, no cell stippend

    Advice to Management

    Stop constantly re-organizing
    Make the interview process gender and race blind. Being held back for things outside of our control is driving talent from the company
