    Pros

    Good "family like" feel. Good corporate citizens. Fair pay and good benefits. Great industry to be in.

    Cons

    Too many consultants running around. Hopefully the last of the BCG era.Management not able to focus on priorities, "all must be done".

    Advice to Management

    Live your values, respect employees. Don't just take surveys about engagement, encourage it, foster it, don't kill it by treating long term employees like commodities.

    Pros

    Constellation Brands is a great company, employing great people. Employees have incredible opportunities for growth. The company is growing fast and performing well. Our culture is like that of a small family owned company, but we are a $6Bn publicly traded company(STZ). And our products are outstanding.

    Cons

    If you don't like to work hard, stay home. There is never a dull moment at Constellaion Brands. Change is part of he game, if you are looking for stability in what to do from day to day, you can find it at Constellation, but you'll need to look hard. Those of us who love this company see this as a pro.

    Advice to Management

    Make decision and stick with them. Always do what you say you will do - without exception. Never lose the family culture - work hard to keep it.

    Pros

    Constellation Brands has a great management team, cares about their employees through strong employee engagement programs. Has great training benefits in a good industry.

    Cons

    As a publicly traded company, management must make short term decisions that are not always in the best interest of long term growth.

    Pros

    Better pay and benefits than many other companies in area

    Cons

    Vile, disgusting, obscene, bullying and illegal behavior is openly tolerated and too often rewarded. Some managers get away with rarely showing up to work and adding zero value. One former manager regularly pressured me and many others to drink and drive - not cool for a company in the beverage alcohol business. Hiring of minority candidates is a joke; hiring of the disabled is nonexistent. Company used to be ethical, but those days are over.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to the fact that this is 2015 and Mad Men behavior is not OK. Pushing people out the door because they are no longer young, have had some health issues, have taken maternity or other family leave or are not "fun" (not interested in getting falling-down drunk at work-related social functions or having extramarital affairs with coworkers) is not OK. Neither is penalizing employees who dare to suggest that perhaps complying with federal and state laws and regulations would be in the company's best interest.
