outstanding company to work for
Meter Reader (Former Employee), Chicago, ILDecember 1, 2014
Pros: healthcare, 401k, and company vehicle access
Cons: not working overtime
Read 500 or more electric meters daily. Practice 100% safety all the time everyday. I learned how to read maps and use a handheld. Managers were perfect, hardest part about the job walking and dogs. The most enjoyable part of the job working overtime.

Highly stressful and a job that takes over your life
Employee (Former Employee), Limerick, PANovember 18, 2014
Pros: lunch available on site, good pay
Cons: stress and very high expectations
If you can handle working at a power plant that has security guards with huge guns, airport-like security to go in and out of the plant, and barbed wire...You may like this company. It is high stress and everything should have been done 3 days ago. It is constant catch up. Ever since they merged with Constellation, there has been many employee cut backs. – more... Your bonuses are based on how well the plant performs. The yearly Outage is a beast - think 12 - 14 hour days and weekends for 3 straight months. You also have to be trained continuously. If you fail some of the tests, you will be escorted off the premises. Upper management leaves often, causing strain and stress to get the plant working under the new VP. Many employees see a psychiatrist. Expect bringing your work home, physically and emotionally. – less

Nice big company.
Accounts Payable Representative (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PASeptember 15, 2014
Pros: big company long term employment & better chance for advancement.
Cons: that i am not still there
Hardest part:
Learning the procedures and process of the department. Then watching the department go from 43 people to 8 people at the end.

Most enjoyable part:
The people they made it easier to learn & the amount of work that kept you busy all day.

Management & Co-workers:
Both management and co-workers were there to help if you need them.

Come – more... in and open & sort incoming mail then distribute to the group.
Two different type of invoice - some (with paper sent from different parts of the company that had to be filed immediately) labor work so when invoice came in all could be verified & others were verified through the system for materials ordered & received. Eventually new program "Passport 8.0" was implemented which let you verify all invoice whether labor and/or material. Some major clients that contact us regarding multiple payments we create spread sheet with all the invoices number, amounts paid & dates paid.
Sometimes you help run the check disbursement machine and once the checks are disbursed your verify the checks for dates, signature and quick glance at the rest of check if ok then fold and stuff envelope for mailing. Update spreadsheet with check run totals. – less

Great Benefits and Salary, but no Work/Life Balance
Senior Business Analyst - HR Applications (Current Employee), Chicago, ILSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: salary and benefits
Cons: stressful environment
The salary and benefits at Exelon are great. The people at the company also good people to work with. However, the culture is very fast-paced and very stressful. Some managers are very disorganized and lack solid managerial skills. But, there are also some great managers in the bunch. Work/life balance is talked about over and over again, but they rarely – more... ever live up to having a good work/life balance. The company is very demanding of your time. – less

Great Internship Experience!
Intern (Former Employee), Pottstown, PAAugust 26, 2014
Pros: comfortable and safe environment, understanding management, always busy!
Cons: difficulty finding tasks i am qualified for
On a typical day, I performed digital point investigations through electrical diagrams and represented the department in the "Plan of the Day" meetings which is a plant-wide meeting.

I learned a lot regarding safety in the nuclear industry, and the structure of corporations. Additionally, I gained a lot of insight on how spent fuel is managed on site, – more... and some of the tasks that are done during a refuel of the plant!

I had a very respectful relationship with my boss, whom was busy with many plant tasks, but he was able to give me a lot of information about the industry.

The hardest part of my job was finding tasks I was qualified to do - as I'm still in college and have very little professional certifications. Fortunately, I was able to assist in our Plant Processing Computer Replacement Project with some of the digital inputs by reviewing electrical schematics!

The most enjoyable part was being in the environment, as at the plant, you really feel like big things are getting accomplished! – less

Great Company with diverse job functions
Program Specialist (Former Employee), Delta, PAAugust 21, 2014
Pros: benefits, salary, size of corporation
Cons: seemingly unfair treatment to poeple with chronic illnesses, lack of support for people who are interested to advance their career
The company is a good company to work for if you are willing and able to work in a fast paced environment. Management encourages you to work indipendently, especially in you are a salaried employee.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the diversity in duties from day to day.
Co-workers were good to work with, however as not being from the Delta area, – more... it made you work harder to fit in and be excepted. – less

Exelon is a top-notch employer
Technical Intern (Former Employee), Forked River, NJJuly 2, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay, people
Cons: n/a
I worked at the Oyster Creek Nuclear Generating Station as a technical intern during the summer of 2013. The entire experience is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life; the people- you honestly couldn't find nicer folks if you tried. The pay and compensation are outstanding (even for an internship!!!). All in all, if you have the – more... opportunity to get an internship with them, take it. Just the same with a full time position, I have family that works for Exelon and the benefits are OUTSTANDING. I've been told most of the technical jobs (as with a lot of other companies) require you to work rotating shifts, so that is something to keep in mind too. Management is great, organization is top-notch. – less

Exelon isn't bad
Armed Responder (Former Employee), Morris IlJune 20, 2014
Pros: great money, i left making 70, 000 a year and that's with little o.t.
Cons: it's nuclear security, you're low on the totem pole!
Working as an Armed Responder isn't hard, but getting your foot in the door is, once there you're on easy street. Training is ok, but the people make the job, Good benefits, lots of O.T. Enjoy :)

Too many layers of management
Treasury Analyst (Current Employee), Chicago, ILMay 8, 2014
Pros: pension
Cons: too much emphasis on face time
The company is restructured every couple years and seems they find room for another layer of management every time. Work life balance has gone out the window.

Great fellow Employees.. however
Power Plant Operator (Former Employee), Forked River NJApril 14, 2014
Pros: go for management.
Cons: union useless and waste of money. terrible job security
Management and co-workers always great and willing to help. You would think in a large plant with a union that job security would be a plus of a company like this... however the union is extremely lazy and DOES NOT DO ANYTHING. file a grievance. they will do nothing about it except have meetings.
