    I worked at Constellation for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The firm has an excellent culture inside and out. It feels more like a family than anything else. It gives a lot of opportunities internally to learn and gain experience in other departments.

    Cons

    Management talks about team building but very rarely do it.

    I have been working at Constellation

    Pros

    Doesn’t require long hours, Good pay for the job type. Causal attire. Easy work life balance.

    Cons

    Monotonous and not very rewarding. When hired on as a contractor there’s no guarantee for a full time position. Once you know how to do the job the point of an office setting doesn’t seem necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Management is awesome. It’s just hard to make a boring job interesting.

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

    Pros

    No “Pros”, all IT positions in Houston are being replaced by incompetent people from a Wisconsin acquisition. The management is the worst. Total dictatorship mentality.

    Cons

    All IT in Houston are being replaced by incompetent people from a Wisconsin acquisition. This newly acquired group was under an acquisition agreement that none of them would be let go.. Therefore, Houston employees are being let go instead, even if they are being replace with less competent employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give the incoming Wisconsin employees the same cruel treatment as the Houston location. Let them know that money trumps all decisions. Knowledge, competency and experience is irrelevant.

    I worked at Constellation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    None. There is literally no good reason to work there. There are many great opportunities elsewhere.

    Cons

    Extreme micromanagement. Your day will literally include a full morning of status meetings with different colleagues. Then you will have about 1-2 free hours to work on your assignments before your afternoon meetings begin. You are also expected to join meetings after hours for manual deployments that can take up to 2 hours from 10:pm to 12 midnight, insane. Too may disparate data systems and many systems are not... stable so the majority of work will be to fix system issues. You will be a software janitor and it's not rewarding at all. The team is chock full of people ready to compete against you for your position because advancement in this company is virtually impossible, the employees refer to it internally as a glass ceiling. It's very toxic depending on the team you work for. Managers will throw you under the bus and will immediately take credit for any positive deliverables. Lastly, don't expect any good ideas to ever get implemented. The amount of red tape and bureaucracy in order for anything to get done is an extreme impediment. Oh, and this place is not an Agile shop even though they claim to be. Its not. They will expect you to be a business analyst, scrum master, developer, QA tester and DevOps person all bundled into one with such a lousy salary. This company operates like it's still 1999.

    Advice to Management

    Please trust your talented employees and stop micromanaging to the point of exhaustion.

    Pros

    Good pay. benefits and a great 401K Match

    The company is going around buying every other energy company and laying off their employees. A lot of little things go unchecked due to the size of this company.
