    Pros

    Great for work life balance, in most groups.

    Cons

    No uniform policy on flexible scheduling, or working from home, etc. If your manager or supervisor is a jerk then you don't the same perks as your peers. Rotation program made it hard to move around within the company as most lower level engineering jobs are only placed via the rotation program and once you rotate, you are not consulted about rotating again.

    Pros

    Utilities are generally stable companies with great benefits & pensions

    Exelon just acquired Pepco Holdings. There is a fair amount of reorganization going on. Lots of chaos. This will pass but it remains to be seen how Exelon will be as an employer- They will be laying some people off short term.
