    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

    Friendly atmosphere with frequent happy hours after work, paid well, great resume booster, given opportunities for future jobs if they like you

    Cons

    Not enough work given, often very bored with little to do, meetings took away from others productiveness and weren't very useful meetings (could have been sent out in an email)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep employees engaged, make them feel wanted because often fellow employees complained they didn't feel their work was appreciated

    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. :)

    I have been working at Constellation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Constellation offers a competitive benefits package.

    Cons

    Constellation generally hires contractors for long-term assignments. Upon completion of their contract term, instrumental employees are rarely offered a permanent employment. This causes disruptions in the workflow process and also contributes to negativity in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in hardworking, long-term contractors who have been loyal to the Constellation.
