    I worked at Constellation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good pay, fascinating industry tackling important and societal challenge

    Cons

    Nothing gets done in this organization
    and if someone gets the courage to do anything, the initiative gets killed ...

    there is no creativity, no constructive conversation,
    every talented person left the company. the people that are left are just fighting over the same ideas that have been swirling around for the last 5 years, but none of them are even capable of pulling these ideas off, or are too sheepish to try. Employee turnover is very high.

    The industry is getting disrupted... and they are just paralyzed, and whining about the status of the industry, instead of seeing it as an opportunity, and leading the transformation of this industry.

    I have never seen so much value destruction in front of my eyes in my entire career. It's deplorable.

    Advice to Management

    Be responsible.
    Create value
    Put the company's interest before your own petty career

    Good teamwork across most of the business unit. The company was filled with smart people. The corporate headquarters were in a great location in the Inner Harbor.

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

    Pros

    The pay is very good and it's a safe environment.

    Cons

    They will grind you into the ground. It's all about what you can do for the company, and they tell you stuff like work life balance is important, and that there are opportunities for personal growth and learning opportunities, but again, it's only if that's what THEY want for you, you don't often get an opinion.

    Advice to Management

    You've got some really great people who give their all, and just a very little appreciation in return for a job well done would be wonderful. You're quick to lay people out to dry, why is a thank you so hard?

    Very high profile company in Baltimore with some of the best employees around.

    Pros

    The company has some great benefits. They recently went through a restructuring and improved the benefit package. The company also tries to hold company wide meetings on a regular basis to keep you informed of the company's progress.

    Cons

    There is no team work. Everyone seems to be trying to get recognition for themselves and not working together as they should.
