    Pros

    Had a great experience ar Constellation. They have a great culture with great workers. My team worked very well together and they paid well.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seemed that it was hard to move within the company. I enjoyed my team but felt if I wanted to switch it would of been hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I felt that they could of offered a program which would enable the interns to move amongst the different teams and really see the exposure within the company.

    Pros

    Good working Environment; Able to speak your mind; Work Hard-play hard approach; Employee benefits in terms of money as well as Career development; Some of the best wroking relationships that I made were here.

    Cons

    Sometimes the informations doesn't get filtered down to the employees concerned. The present top management is, in my opinion, too authoritative and didn't had a plan in place, in case things go wrong (as we saw in 2008's financial crisis)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a plan in place, in case things go wrong.

    Pros

    The energy industry is quite dynamic so the company is positioned to offer career growth opportunity. The company also fosters a collegial environment where employee views are valued. Compensation package is considered fairly decent. Benefits are generally good except vacations.

    Cons

    Long hours due to conservative approach to staffing. Vacation entitlement is not great (3 weeks for the first 15 years). Company has quite a barbell distribution in terms of employee seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing

    Pros

    Cover the entire retail energy product and service portfolio right from being the largest retail energy provider with offerings in commodity, demand response, energy efficiency, solar and other renewable energy attributes

    Cons

    Due to the internal structural challenges it is difficult to effectively provide a comprehensive offering. Commodity sales force which is the largest individual group are hesitant in offering comprehensive service offerings due to differing sales cycles and lack of knowledge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have technical sales or solutions developers who can develop and structure comprehensive and synergistic energy solutions offerings who have knowledge and expertise across the entire energy strategy
