    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    The computers are slightly outdated and few people are given work laptops or phones.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 worked at Exelon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    During my tenure, I experienced a great culture throughout the organization and I had a lot of interesting opportunities and experience that have enabled me to grow as a professional. Energy is an exciting industry and Exelon has a very clear organizational governance and operations structure. Many of the people are very committed to the company and willing to work together to advance a cause.

    Cons

    There was not a clear path to advancement and promotions did not appear to be merit-based. If they haven't already, a 360 review process could help fix some of the management issues experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Reward people with recognition not just monetary incentives and do more of a 360 review process if you haven't already implemented one.

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

    Pros

    Pays well, benifits are avg. Discount on exelon Stock. If you want money they pay big for SRO positions (with bonus 170-200k per year)

    Cons

    They demand that their employees to support the company. They want work done, it will happen at the cost of your family, friends, life style. They will change your work-life to only benifit their business model. No doubt that is one of the main reason most of the site has been through a divorce(Or many). They have the reputation in the industry of being the evil empire.

    I worked at Exelon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. That is about it.

    Cons

    Selling Texas assets after defaulting on a loan. UNETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES.
    Left all of the legacy employees behind except for the boot lickers. Wouldn't have happened if it was a Union environment.

    Advice to Management

    Too top heavy..No wonder the stock has lost so much. Too much boon doggle activity at the med and upper management level. Obvious buddy system from up north.

    I worked at Exelon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay, Great Benefits, somewhat flexible company.

    Cons

    Occasional long hours, Many levels of management, too many meetings for management leads to an ineffective structure. Some managers spend more than 8 hours per day in meetings.

    Also, you can't advance your career past middle management unless you're willing to do shift work for 4 years.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on number of meetings, decrease time spent in meetings. Managers should manage. Nothing gets done in meetings.

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

    Pros

    The pay is great as well as the benefits. Upper management is accessible even for the lowest level employee. There is room to grow, and the culture allows you to feel comfortable moving positions and even departments. They are socially responsible and committed to diversity which is a great thing to see. An exciting time to work in Energy.

    Cons

    As with all big companies, it is hard to communicate sometimes across silos. Some steps can be taken to break down these barriers.

    Advice to Management

    Try to break down barriers and shift culture to a more open workplace and less departmental. This would improve cross-department communication.

    Pros

    Great salary
    Amazing benefits
    Growing company
    Good work life balance
    I love working here. The environment is great and they value you as an employee.

    Cons

    Need some culture changes in terms of supplier relations. Suppliers need to be held accountable for their transgressions. Work on building relationships with growing suppliers and help them, don't stick to one or two old suppliers.

    Advice to Management

    Look for younger people to promote from within. Management is older and has a more traditional view of supply, need innovative takes from a younger group.

    Pros

    Excellent pay , worked for BGE over 40 years. There was always a pay check there. I gave them my very best over the years.

    Cons

    Human Resources is antiquated and slowwwwww, holds up progress.

    Advice to Management

    BGE /Constellation being now under the Exelon name why isn't the medical insurance benefit costs the same for everyone. There is certainly no need for this disparity!
