    Pros

    Great office, and corporate team worked very hard to make the best of what we had to work with each day.

    Cons

    Besides management. Sales team would work so hard to get deals approved but Constellation would just decline the new business

    I worked at Constellation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, lots of networking opportunity. They did allow contractors to work from home in the beginning, and things started to change after new leadership appointed.

    Cons

    Team building non existent, employees not friendly. Was a contractor there, and was not always treated well. Worked other places and being a contractor was better.

    Advice to Management

    Look to hire more friendly employees. Express the importance of sharing knowledge with colleagues. Company needs to recruit better with individuals who have solid background and education.

    I worked at Constellation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of effort was spent maintaining communications internally amongst all levels about what the parent company and leadership were working on. Roll out of internal mentorship program offered cross-department thought leadership and engagement.

    Cons

    Growing pains. A lot of challenges as embedded business groups were forced to adapt and share information interdepartmentally. Competing department agendas often made collaboration difficult. Multiple restructuring efforts made it confusing to know who did what. Overstretched compliance department created delays for operations, sales and marketing to be successful in a timely manner among emerging and embedded markets. Limited career movement and development opportunities offered.

    I worked at Constellation (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very good work environment: nice and helpful co-workers and excellent life-work balance. The low cost of living in Baltimore makes the living standard remarkable.
    Management is demanding but values work-life balance at the same time. The work on the trade floor is exciting and interesting. Opportunities to learn a lot and grow professionally.

    Cons

    Current office building maybe a bit old but that should be fixed soon with the new building in Harbour East (which looks awesome).

    Pros

    Working for Constellation was easily the best job I have ever had. Not only do you have the potential to make great money if you work hard, but it is also a really positive work environment. This company made my efforts feel valued and appreciated and my talents recognized. There is a lot of room for advancement opportunities and a wealth of support and guidance to help you get there. The management team motivates and entourages you to capitalize on your strengths and improve your weaknesses to make you the most successful agent you can be. If I weren't pursuing graduate school for something different, I would have loved to stay.

    Cons

    Sales can be very cyclical and stressful at times when you are in a lull. That is no fault of the company and just something that comes with the territory.

    Advice to Management

    Do away with PIP. :)
