Pros

Great training programs and opportunities to grow your skill set. If this is your first supplier job you will be able to transfer to any company in the industry after spending a few years with Constellation.

Cons

The politics involved in moving advancing through this organization are unbelievable. THere are meny talented people workignhere but they are not always the ones that get promoted.

Advice to Management

Look at your teams and how they are working together. This is a group of individuals not a cohesive unit.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They are good with allowing you a work:life balance. Working from home is never a problem and they are flexible with hours to accommodate traffic, children, appointments, etc.

    Cons

    Senior management is oblivious to the day to day goings on of their employees. Often unrealistic demands are placed on middle management (and lower).

    Advice to Management

    They really need to spend a few weeks working in the roles of their staff to understand our challenges and areas that help is required.

    Pros

    Benefits above average for the area, even an allowance for wine purchases, pay above average for the area. Company enourages volunteering in community (with some restrictions during work hours) and contributes financially to many worthy causes. Great potential to learn about the alcoholic beverage industry.

    Cons

    Management is out of touch with those on the front line. Birthright is not a guarantee of competent leadership. When goals are not being met, pressure from upper management explodes and stress becomes horrific - plan on working extra hours, getting frowned upon for needing to leave for doctor appt's and kids' functions. Paper diplomas have a higher value than loyalty to the company, long time employment, and common sense. If you are young and hip, apply and pad your resume for 3-5 years and leave. That's the pattern now. What was a wonderful place to work has become a merely paycheck to so many. And if asked for an opinion, just smile and nod and agree with the management person asking - they don't want to hear the truth. I have seen some bright, talented, experienced people leave for simply telling the truth.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to the front line people. Enough with the flashy parties and trying to get the company name plastered on everything imaginable. Mr. Marvin Sands was a kind, compassionate, brilliant man and truly cared for the people who worked for him. The culture today is pure business, cold and ruthless.
