I worked at Constellation Brands

Pros

Fair benefits packages, friendly coworkers, interesting industry. Most areas have a lot of autonomy and there is always plenty of work to do.

Cons

There appears to be little guidance from upper management. Projects and initiatives are started by divisions or departments without overall integration with the rest of the company, usually to pad someone's resume before they leave the company. This leads to a lot of cleanup work and integration after their departure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please spend less time on retreats creating corporate values and policies and more time leading by example. Constellation Brands has some great employees and brands that deserve better leadership.

    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 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Exciting brands, intelligent management, respectful and innovative culture.

    Cons

    They only keep the best of the best. Not great job security as the company has frequent re-organizations.
