    I worked at Constellation full-time

    Pros

    If you are the top salesperson you may make a reasonable income other than that there is nothing to speak positively about.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. The upper echelon of the company only tries to find ways to screw your contracts over. The moment you actually find a customer with a decent commission and you report it to management it is taken away from you. Happened too many times to count. Territories are small and convoluted. The team you work with only care about themselves. Never trusted anyone in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Change everything. The sales staff never had any faith in management. The turnover rate was ridiculous with constant firing and quitting.

    Pros

    Overall good company with good benefits and systems in place.

    Cons

    Baltimore. infighting between departments. Lack of 360 degree reviews. White man's club. No training. Departments can operate in isolation and allow a dictator to flourish. This and the resulting turnover can go unnoticed or ignored as long as the department produces. Fairness is not a top priority and relationships matter very much.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for feedback of direct management in the review process to avoid breeding dictators.

    They have a great benefits package medical sick leave and other non-monetary benefits. Had satellite offices in many cities as well.

    Company was not very responsible in spending
    Lies to employees about the financial shape and current status
    Horrible severance package if you get laid off

    Be honest with employees and might avoid pitfalls. Stay within energy and not go outside core with trading energy with investment banks.

    Pros

    Health Benefits are the only positive that I experienced while at Constellation Energy. The only other thing that comes close to a "Pro" is the work/life balance.

    Cons

    As stated in the "Pros" of work/life balance, the reason that the hours are low is because senior management does not push employees to strive to perform at a higher level.

    Advancement opportunities are very limited.

    Information sharing (re: to the business and employee's performance) is very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding employee complacency and focus on the employees with the knowledge and determination. Constellation also needs to focus on adding valuable talent and not just "button pushers".

    Expensive benefits, promotions are based on who you know not what you know, constant changes in management, you never know what to expect from one week to the next.

    Advice to Management

    Settle down already!!! Employees have no job security in Corp office. Managers constantly shuffled or fired. Goals change all the time.

    I worked at Constellation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay
    Emphasis on safety
    Pension and health insurance, dental, vision, company contribution to HSA.
    Free parking
    Nice area to live

    Cons

    If you want to enjoy your job, don't apply here. Employees are not valued, very limitted room for mobility within (it seems they would rather hire trainees with no experience and spend 2 years training them than allow ann employee to move), can't remember when a member of my management even said thank you. It's like working for the Gestapo. They can say anything they want about you and even if you have documentation it's not true, they refuse to change it, and HR is HORRIBLE. This coming for a long term employee who BTW was not fired.

    Advice to Management

    You put alot of time into training people, why do you not care if they're happy or have any kind of work/life balance? People come to work and want to do the very best they can so stop treating them like disposable commodities. You couldn't care less about the line of people leaving there, why?
