Pros

Constellation seems to have salary and benefit levels at least competitive if not better than industry average. From a corporate perspective acquisitions and sales of pieces of the business make sense giving employees a degree of security. The portfolio of owned companies is impressive. The company works to assure employees of acquisitions that it will not immediately revamp the status quo.

Cons

Top level executive compensation according to annual report seems high in view of the company's recent performance. There is a strong feeling that complaints and suggestions by low to mid level employees can not be heard by top management. Marketing decisions such as packaging and market research seem to be made without reference to local production units resulting in avoidable mistakes. Distribution networks have seen evidence of recent disarray resulting in some loss of sales volume. Working for a company with good compensation but truncated communications with decision makers is better than not having a job.

Advice to Management

Find ways for any employee to ask questions, make suggestions or even complain without fear of retribution and with some indication that the communication was received. Lincoln Electric seems to have a way of doing this.

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

    Pros

    Being part of a dynamic Company is exciting! Great benefits and pay, perks of product allowance are added bonus.

    Cons

    Very difficult for non-exempt staff to transition into exempt roles within the organization. Company does not focus on their growth.

    Advice to Management

    Create a career progression for non-exempt staff. Most are pigeon holed in their positions.
