I have been working at Constellation Brands

Pros

Constellation seems to have salary and benefit levels at least competitive if not better than industry average. From a corporate perspective acquisitions and sales of pieces of the business make sense giving employees a degree of security. The portfolio of owned companies is impressive. The company works to assure employees of acquisitions that it will not immediately revamp the status quo.

Cons

Top level executive compensation according to annual report seems high in view of the company's recent performance. There is a strong feeling that complaints and suggestions by low to mid level employees can not be heard by top management. Marketing decisions such as packaging and market research seem to be made without reference to local production units resulting in avoidable mistakes. Distribution networks have seen evidence of recent disarray resulting in some loss of sales volume. Working for a company with good compensation but truncated communications with decision makers is better than not having a job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways for any employee to ask questions, make suggestions or even complain without fear of retribution and with some indication that the communication was received. Lincoln Electric seems to have a way of doing this.

    I have been working at Constellation Brands (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great brands, people and bonus. This company works very hard and plays even harder. Opportunity for advancement but only if you relocate

    Cons

    Salary levels are not competitive with similar companies. The relocation standard is sub par, hence the reason people not willing to relocate. They hire from the outside too often when there are capable internal candidates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and pay your people a competitive salary. You have high end products, are a high end company yet pay your people below industry averages.
