    I have been working at Constellation (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent company to work for. Headquarters of parent company (Exelon) is a plus. Lots of opportunities compared to most large companies

    Cons

    Employees don't care. Laziness is rampant. The industry is boring. Growing business is next to impossible. Workers are anti social.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great. The industry is bad. If I were a young person I would avoid at all costs. No young person wants to be a contracted worked. Hire people as full time employees, if they prove they are good.

    Pros

    Good life-work balance.
    No pressure in a utility style company.

    Cons

    The company is very hierarchical and political.
    The internal competition makes coordination difficult.
    The company keeps losing strong and experienced employees and will soon be taken over by politicians.
    Wrong decisions are made everyday and taking over by Exelon is the worst thing that happens to a good company.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the number of managers.

    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.

    Pros

    Professional working environment definitely a plus. Not a cut throat working culture at all when I was working there.

    Overall communication issue. I am not sure about other functions, but lack of communication between team members and standardization could be one of cons working at Constellation
