    I worked at Constellation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable organization. Good people/colleagues. Company aspires to do some innovative things

    Very risk adverse. Commodity supply business dictates all decisions. Has a very hard time executing on new ideas. As with many large companies, beurocracy stifles innovation.

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

    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 Management

    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

  9. "Company with great benefits"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Director in Aliso Viejo, CA
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Constellation

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, much better than other Fortune 500 companies I've worked for. Very family friendly, from plant level to upper management. Most managers encourage participation in company-sponsored events and allow the time to do so. Plenty of opportunities for professional development, inside and outside the company.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for advancement unless you know the right people. Management doesn't provide positive feedback . Senior leadership cannot relate to subordinates. Appears to be more cronyism at the top than what I've observed in past companies. No formal mentoring program.

    Advice to Management

    Approach diversity within the company seriously, i.e. mentor minority employees. Implement a formal mentoring program. Practice what you preach.

  10. "Typical compensation and work environment for a large utility ... changes coming"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Constellation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are solid and depending on the individual assignment, people seem very loyal and willing to work together.

    Cons

    A significant number of new employees from other segments of the industry is causing a shift in the culture away from the employee. As the company gets larger, the feeling of being treated as an individual is going away slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Be more careful regarding advancement. It is not a good idea to hire a group of like minded individuals to the point of group think. Debate and discussion should be encouraged as a means to improve in each area. There is a significant pool of very strong people working there ... give them a voice.
