Great Culture and Benefits!
Supply Chain (Former Employee) –  Canandaigua, NYNovember 18, 2015
Overall, its a great company to work. As the company get bigger it lack the people aspect and training manager to treat people with respect. They can get smart people to work but their managers lack in people skills. Something to work on Constellation!
Pros
Beer & Wine! Happy Hours! Benefits are awesome!
Cons
Poor manager staffing and engagement

Sensory Panelist (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, CANovember 2, 2015
Fun workplace. Work with people who love the whole wine experience. Although we work as individuals as we input data, we do share our tasting experiences which helps us to focus on our tasting abilities.

Compensation and benefits great for management but average for employees
Distribution Director (Former Employee) –  Lodi, CASeptember 1, 2015
Great to use this company as a stepping stone in your career but do not expect loyalty to it's employees. Ask anyone who has time there about "march madness".

The great news is you are working in the alcohol industry and have access to some really great brands at a great price.

The bad news is the company can't grow organically and only grows by acquisition which means constant internal changes as companies merge and senior management's focus changes.

The greatest part about working at Constellation was the employees. I was surrounded by a great team of people.
Pros
Great brands and many quality employees to work with.
Cons
Work very hard for the money and senior management doesn't offer a clear and defined vision.

Warehouse Manager (Former Employee) –  Lodi, CAJuly 11, 2015
Middle managment was typically overwhelmed with employee issues and computer management programs that left no time to actually manage the work force. We spent so much time on line doing HR type functions that most managers were very frustrated.

Excellent compensation, cutthroat company
Client Services Manager (Former Employee) –  Madera, CAApril 9, 2015
Constellation provides excellent pay and benefits. They are fast-paced and challenging. The only real drawback is that they are cutthroat in their industry. They seem to have an interest only in the bottom line and anything that must suffer to benefit that surely does.

Associate Manager, Trade Marketing and Promotions (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 4, 2015
Constellation Brands is a great place to work! A typical day includes managing multiple projects across many zones around the United States. Managing coupons, point of sale, displays, racks, and much more from execution with graphic designers to completed with distribution vendor shipping. I have learned so much, from the many wine, beer, and spirits brands to organization, project management, legality, branding, tracking, shipping, creative design and much more. It is a very nice and open environment, where everyone is willing to help and collaborate. It is a very enjoyable environment and always fun to learn something new about the wide range of brands.
Pros
wine and beer on tap
Cons
commute

Visitor Center Ambassador (Former Employee) –  HealdsburgJanuary 9, 2015
Benefits are great, but that does not make up for the fact that the company has double standards, unclear goals, horrible training. They keep employees that are incompitant for years and years only because they can sell wine clubs. It was fun to work at a historic winery, however guests were frequently disappointed that it was owed by a huge corporation.
Pros
benifits - terrific coworkers
Cons
managers give no management

Accountant (Former Employee) –  Victor, NYDecember 2, 2014
Constellation Brands is a terrible place to work. They love to misuse people by keeping them as temps for over 25 years and refuse to hire them directly.

Great benefits and work/life balance, not a lot of room for growth
Marketing (Current Employee) –  Canandaigua, NYJuly 10, 2014
Constellation is a great company to work for as the benefits are wonderful. The parties and free wine are great perks, however there isn't room for advancement on East coast. If you want to move to high priced San Francisco, CA then there are many more opportunities.
Pros
benefits, free products, work/life balance, salary = average
Cons
growth potential is extremely limited on east coast

Constellation Brands clearly has one of the BEST wine portfolios in the Industry. Fantastic!
Field Sales Manager - Minnesota (Former Employee) –  Canandaigua, NYFebruary 3, 2014
I owe a great deal to Canandaigua Wine Company (now called Constellation Brands). This Company gave me the chance to learn the wine industry covering multiple states with plenty of distributor responsibility. As they acquired companies such as Sebastiani, Robert Mondavi, Vincor, Beam Wine Estates, I became educated on Premium, Super Premium, Luxury, and Ultra level wines because these were the wine categories I inherited and took over selling.
Pros
all the brands, the total compensation, and many of the people
Cons
i would rather not say.
