    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.

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive pay, lots of opportunities for technology enhancement and implementation strategies. Very knowledgeable staff, with great online material available to help you get integrated.

    Cons

    As a newly hired manager (18 months); the only con is that our leadership has a culture that makes it difficult for them to accept or adapt to new ideas surrounding IT & telecom solutions and synergistic strategies, the culture has the mentality of “we’ve been doing it like this for the past 20-30 years” or this is a utility - “we move slower than your typical Fortune 100”.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on the OCIO strategy and initiatives; they seem to be heading in the right direction for IT. Reach out to your new hires, ask them for ideas and input. The idea of 10-15 year technology lifecycle is 1980’s thinking. For our. Sr Execs - if Mergers, Acquisitions and Divestitures is a part of your roadmap - your IT Telecomm should be an agile, adaptable world class infrastructure to ensure synergies and systems integration within 18 months ( not the current model of 5+ years) we need to get ahead of our competition. Embrace technology, treat it as a core function, it is what will make Exelon the benchmark for utilities of the future. I look forward to being part of a dynamic team.
