    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Friendly coworkers. Interesting day to day work, every day is something new.

    Cons

    Departments work in silos. A lot of infighting and finger pointing between groups. A lot of push from new Exelon execs to get things done but no resources to do it.

    Advice to Management

    I like that Exelon is excited about innovation. Continue to listen to your employees. Consider cost of living adjustment depending on the job location.

    I have been working at Pepco Holdings full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, vacation, educational assistance. Lots of room for growth in terms of changing departments and seeing different aspects of things. Flex time is allowed in a lot of departments; sometimes working from home is, too.

    Cons

    Work can be tedious at times, but I imagine it's like that almost everywhere. Sometimes it seems like years count more than merit for promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut off your employees from upper management just because they don't have a lot of experience. Hopefully the new "coaching" feedback works well.
