    I have been working at Constellation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent company culture. Good benefits. I was laid off when my department was eliminated, but I was allowed to stay on the payroll until I was fully vested in my 401K and Pension. I received severance pay and out placement as well, so all in all i was treated very well.

    Cons

    it was hard to communicate with the folks in upper management to discuss issues we we were having in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Get out in the field more often to see what issues your sales people have to deal with.

    I worked at Constellation full-time

    Pros

    Overall very good place to work. Pay is above average and good bonus structure. Decent opportunity to grow into management for those interested in that path.

    Cons

    Corporate environment where politics often come into play. Can also be hard to justify large pay increases when starting at a junior level and moving up to a more senior role.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that there is a structure in place which would allow for a more rapid increase in salary. For example it can be hard for a intern hired on to move up the pay scale as they advance to a more senior role.
