    Pros

    The energy industry is quite dynamic so the company is positioned to offer career growth opportunity. The company also fosters a collegial environment where employee views are valued. Compensation package is considered fairly decent. Benefits are generally good except vacations.

    Cons

    Long hours due to conservative approach to staffing. Vacation entitlement is not great (3 weeks for the first 15 years). Company has quite a barbell distribution in terms of employee seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    Pros

    The compensation package can be good at Constellation; however, the work/life balance will depend upon the department and manager. There are lots of opportunities to learn, grow, and gain exposure to senior management if you're good.

    Cons

    If you're good, you'll have more work than you know what to do with. This can lead to a terrible work/life balance if you don't manage it correctly. Also, there has been a lot of organizational changes in the last few years in some of the departments which can be stressful if you like a stable/predictable environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to allow employees to stretch beyond their job title; however, allow them to make the inevitable mistakes in a safe environment.
