I worked at Constellation Brands as an intern for less than a year

Pros

This is a great place to work because of the caring and diverse employee culture and the ability to take a hands-on approach to work from day one. I was given a great deal of responsibility from the beginning which greatly added to my professional learning process.

Cons

Could perhaps improve on employee productivity, at least in the division I worked. However, I cannot speak for headquarters.

    I have been working at Constellation Brands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good starting point for young talent entering the industry, however future growth opportunities are somewhat limited in the sales area.

    Cons

    It's all about the #'s. Make your case & depletion goals and you are a star. Don't make them and you are gone. They are good at growing big brands. However, they have a very poor record of developing new brands or having any patience to nurture and do the heavy lifting of real brand building. Please note that this is a wine company with Spirit brands. Fine Wines & On-Premise areas take a back seat to grocery or mass merchandiser channel management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of evaluating and developing your bench by providing a succession plan for key employees.

    I have been working at Constellation Brands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Above average pay, bonus...sinful! Lots of money thrown at problems....because they can

    Cons

    Cutthroat atmosphere, rude and often foul mouth management, not friendly to new blood. If a given area had pressure....higher paid folks get tossed aside. Poor HR practices - though documented processes are progressive and look good - behaviors by mgt (as inpsired by the top dogs) is anything but moral and ethical

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention - many great people have left because you had no checks and balances on your second level of mgt. Your loss
