    Pros

    Good pay, good balance between work and personal life.

    Cons

    A lot of inter office politics, constant delays to work, no room for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Currently the company is run on many levels by the "Good-O-Boys" club. People are shuffled around and dismissed based on who is happy with them or who is unhappy with them personally, not professionally. Most of the personnel are at retirement age, but have not retired due to the looses taken to their 401k.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD (US)

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The energy industry typically pays more than many other industries--at least locally. I got a significant bump with a lower title and less hours worked when taking a position here. There were great opportunities for learning at this company, depending on the division you work in.

    Cons

    There was a feeling that it was tough to get promoted, no matter how hard one worked. Like many places, the politics were frustrating at times. Bad behavior from higher-level management was often times ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on office culture and listening and responding to feedback from your employees. Encourage higher ethical standards from your leadership.

    Pros

    Large stable company, good benefits, vigorous culture, but most people are pretty laid-back (outside of Sales).

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy with all the trappings (has improved recently), can be difficult to advance within the company,

    Good pay, merger creates a lot of issues

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Constellation Energy Group

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are decent but this has been slowly shifting. Now pensions of legacy CCG employees are being removed in certain areas. Decent vacation and sick.

    Cons

    As mentioned, they recently have been removing the pension in areas of the company even to the old constellation employees (with merger stayed intact until now). Management promotes those whom they favor and not on skill which is very evident in some areas. It's a little bit of sink or swim. High turnover rate of extremely valuable employees creates issues. Also a more flexible work schedule would be appreciated. Must work typical 9-6 unless you have a child in which case it seems okay to leave 30min-1hr early

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication in company is still an issue. Not enough information is passed down to employees and certain items are heard via rumors in order to learn anything

    Great company, great outlook, but improving benefits and retaining talent could use work

    I worked at Constellation Energy Group as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture
    Good manager interaction
    Good pay and benefits
    Good time off policies

    I learned a lot and had a good amount of flexibility with what I wanted to learn/accomplish

    Cons

    "Contractor" situation is unfair to some workers who are not technically "employees" but still share the same role as employees
    Could use more training
    Little ability to see other parts of the business
    Closer oversight could have benefited both me and the business. There were obstacles from time to time that could have been overcome if I had more communication on my direct supervisors' ends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give full time offers to great interns!
