    An amazing experience combined with respect from co-workers.

    Intern (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsMany opportunities
    Ability to advance
    Great compensation for good performance
    A team atmosphere with respect for each employee

    ConsSometimes knowledge is not shared adequately
    Interns can be looked upon as a nuisance

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe leadership team provides quality feedback, necessary support, and a helping hand in creating work life balance. They are trustworthy and competent. You won't find managers who cannot step in to complete an employees tasks in an emergency or who doesn't know their staff and their areas of responsibility. This management team sets the bar high for other companies.

    I have enjoyed my time there and am looking forward to growing in the company

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Lusby, MD

    ProsLots of room to grow due to the retiring work force. Also the salary is good and the people are very good and enjoyable to work with. I get the feeling that most workers would do a lot for each other.

    ConsThe benefits (health care) were recently reduced, but that is more common with the new rules. Also the demands of the work week can often exceed the normal 40 hours.

    Disappointed

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsDecent compensation and competitive benefits package. Constellation is a large company with good geographic diversity. It has many excellent people to learn from and the company encourages information sharing.

    ConsThe geographic diversity can be a problem in that it makes it difficult to develop the relationships necessary to be effective in your role.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConstellation's management suffers from the same problem that many management groups have: they think that their leadership is the answer to the company's problems.

    Overall good place to start a career, but may change depending on merger

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsGood coworkers, great salary level for the greater DC area. Depending on which department you work for, your contributions may be recognized. Generally good level of vacation days. So far, unlimited sick days (but can he checked upon if requested by management).

    ConsDepending on who you have as a manager, you may not get necessary guidance. This is changing though. As the company undergoes a merger, there will be plenty of ambiguity. In some departments, contribution by the non-management level may go unnoticed. Performance evaluation from the direct report (i.e. one level above) can be trumphed by senior management to match the department objectives.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to be fair to all in promotions and performance evaluations.

    Experience depends on the department

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsThe compensation package can be good at Constellation; however, the work/life balance will depend upon the department and manager. There are lots of opportunities to learn, grow, and gain exposure to senior management if you're good.

    ConsIf you're good, you'll have more work than you know what to do with. This can lead to a terrible work/life balance if you don't manage it correctly. Also, there has been a lot of organizational changes in the last few years in some of the departments which can be stressful if you like a stable/predictable environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to allow employees to stretch beyond their job title; however, allow them to make the inevitable mistakes in a safe environment.
