    Pros

    Decent 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Constellation'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.

    Pros

    Good 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).

    Cons

    Depending 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 Management

    Learn to be fair to all in promotions and performance evaluations.

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    If 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay and very flexible work hours. Great way to meet routinely with Senior Management.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. Expected to mark time and laterally transfer for 10-15 years before moving up.

    Advice to Management

    You need to take a chance and give young people an oppurtunity to get a change in some Senior Leadership posiitions.

    Pros

    Though I only worked as an intern, I gathered from my full-time colleagues that Constellation has a competitive and generous compensation package. This includes full tuition reimbursements at local colleges and universities. Furthermore, I worked in downtown Baltimore near Inner Harbor so the location is vibrant and exciting, especially during the summer. Many of my intern friends in other departments were kept very busy and immediately immersed in the company's everyday operations.

    Cons

    I had minimal training and was given very little direction as to what goals I was hired to accomplish. For most of my time there, I was felt quite bored due to lack of work.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of sending out mass e-mails as the primary way of communicating important issues and changes, find a more effective medium so that it's less impersonal.

    Pros

    They have a great benefits package medical sick leave and other non-monetary benefits. Had satellite offices in many cities as well.

    Cons

    Company was not very responsible in spending Lies to employees about the financial shape and current status Horrible severance package if you get laid off

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with employees and might avoid pitfalls. Stay within energy and not go outside core with trading energy with investment banks.

    Pros

    Overall good company with good benefits and systems in place.

    Cons

    Baltimore. infighting between departments. Lack of 360 degree reviews. White man's club. No training. Departments can operate in isolation and allow a dictator to flourish. This and the resulting turnover can go unnoticed or ignored as long as the department produces. Fairness is not a top priority and relationships matter very much.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for feedback of direct management in the review process to avoid breeding dictators.
