Exciting fast paced company in a challenging industry
Corporate Treasurer & Risk Manager (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – December 8, 2015
Constellis is the industry leader in private security in high threat areas such as the middle east. Consolidation of Triple Canopy, Academi and Olive Group will create synergies but create near term attrition.
Very competitive industry due to military pull down in middle east
Veteran friendly organization, helped to employ veteran OCONUS. Time of employment from to employment can be 6-12 months due to process of application approval by the client, security clearance process, training and deployment at no fault of the company.
Security clearance process concerning the length of time to be granted
The work as a security specialist is fun and quite interesting. The routine is well structured and easy to follow through. Training on job is also well organized and collaboration with colleagues and other contractors from other companies expose the guard to a learning environment full of new contacts and skills.The most uncomfortable part of the job is the safety ware required to put on as it is very heavy. It drains a lot of life of a would be loyal worker to the point of contemplating shorter worker span in that field. The most enjoyable part of the job though, is fully paid relocation flights. The company is also well connected and respected in the area it is operating by service providers. It is a prestige to be associated with Constellis.

A typical work day for me would be answering emails, booking travel, process passports, processing visas, set up CAC appointments, submit itineraries to the client for independent contractors to deploy and data entry.I learn different things every day besides my work duties; when the client want changes or wanted to add things to what I do I make it happen. The management was good, I was never marco managed; my boss trusted my every move he said I had good work ethics. The work culture is not that diversed.The hardest part of my job is being able to to handle all of the many moving parts; you have to be able to priortize.The most enjoyable part of my job is to satisfy our customers.
Being able to work from home when I have sick kids and not being macro managed
Probably one of the best civilian jobs that I ever had. I work with ex military personnel, and they make your time with the company seem like you been working with them for years. Great pay, great people, great management, and great training. Hardest part of the job is how much overtime you want to do, because it was always available. Doing humanitarian rescues and providing a sense of safety to the locals is always a good feeling.

The hardest part of this job is the heat! You prepare for the heat by drinking water pretty much without stopping and you may survive! Management is good about taking care of everyone and providing water, food, and anything extra you may need. And the poor EDD's. They do an amazing job of keeping their K9's safe and healthy but still work.
