Good old boys club for promotions
U.S. Quality Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 19, 2017
Quality Director is quite possibly the worst leader I have worked for. Other than that the company is good to work for. Just hope you report to the right person. Some new management couldn't manage a McDonald's drive thru.
Pros
Free beer
Cons
Location (depending on preference). Promotions are unexpected and not discussed until the day of.

Poor place to work for.....!
Celler operator (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge winery acampoJanuary 2, 2017
Let me start by saying that this position i held for 5 years. It has the worst management team from the GM to supervisors in every department. In this field they are currently trying to go union. This is do to bad management and poor wages also favoritism at its finest.... I would really consider not wasting your time here. Also everything is out dated and that's due to bonuses givin to management on how much they save so there is little to no spending on equipment. Just a heads up to those applying for this position...... also this position is for rotating shifts so it's near impossible to go back to school or have a second job. Watch out for the supervisors in this department!
Pros
Its a job
Cons
Bad management, poor wages for a company of this size, good luck

Fun, family culture?
Director, Compensation (Corporate) (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 18, 2016
Constellation is a publicly traded company with a strong family-owned culture. The COB and CEO are sons of the company's founder and they control a high percentage of the voting shares. This family history is evident in the company's concern and support for its employees.
The flip side of this family business culture is that the COB and CEO expect little dissent in the decision making process.

Five years ago, when employees were asked to describe working at Constellation Brands in three words, the most prevalent response was "Fun". Don't be fooled into thinking its all fun and games though. The business goals are set high and the expectation is that they will be met.
Pros
Product allowance, bar in the office, strong CSR ethic.
Cons
The benefits package is at the lower end of competitive, decision making is highly centralized in the Rochester NY offices.

Great company, poor mid management
current employee (Current Employee) –  californiaAugust 21, 2016
Maintenance turn over is unbelievable. You are told "some" over time, but will find out that you have to work nearly 6 days a week once you sign on the dotted line. Mid management has no clear direction, throw darts in the dark to see what might happen. Hiring and promotions are based on who you are related to. They really don't care out hard working employees, is all about brown noising. Too bad, this is a great company to work for. Try a different location
Pros
benefits, stock options 401k
Cons
mid management

Be Careful
Data Warehouse Engineer (Former Employee) –  NYMay 2, 2016
Constellation IT management has mastered the shell game. IT management likes to show the business side the latest and greatest in technology every 6 months to make it appear as if all of the business problems will be solved. The actual issue that IT management and the business misses, is that Constellation IT lacks the fundamentals to allow the IT department to be successful. As seasoned IT personnel will know, this leads to long hours, poor morale and lack of work/life balance.
Cons
Long hours, poor management, bad morale
