Great place to start, but not to advance.
Anti-Terrorist Officer - Government Contractor (Current Employee) –  Reston, VASeptember 2, 2018
Constellis Group Inc is a company that offers general low-level contracts to introduce employees to contracting both stateside and overseas. The benefits and pay are not the best, but management is fair. If you want to start a job that will get your foot in the door then Constellis will offer anyone a great deal.
Pros
Travel, Job Location, Hours
Cons
Low Salary, Vacation Time, and Corporate

Federal Security Contractor (Current Employee) –  Independence, MONovember 28, 2018
Long hours, poor management, no vacation or sick leave. Free-market has better benefits packages. Lack of room for advancement. Deep-seated "Good Ole Boys" club amongst management.

Field Training Officer (Current Employee) –  KuwaitMay 30, 2018
Depending on location the work can be very busy and long but you get what you put into it. The benefits are good. The management will always work with you especially if your a member of the national guard or reserve if you let them know ahead of time.

Personality Disordered Employees Destroy Company
Employee (Former Employee) –  Reston, VADecember 12, 2018
I had the misfortune of working here and there is no question that this company employs a fair amount of personality disordered individuals mainly in management positions that are causing complete destruction within this organization. Back stabbing is a daily occurrence. When you leave this company it continues and those who remain aren't intelligent enough to figure these people out. It's toxic and destructive. There are several "managers" here who ride off the backs of their subordinates who do nothing and add no value while dragging current and former employees thru the mud with their smear campaigns that never seem to backfire on them. I long for the day these people are let do and they are forced to work in non-toxic companies that don't tolerate this behavior so that the have an ongoing stream of unemployment and due karma.
Pros
None
Cons
Horrible, Corrupt Employees and Bad Management

Place not to work!
Document Control Specialist (Former Employee) –  Moyock, NCAugust 27, 2018
Tried to get advancement but the department director is a cut-throat only looking out for themselves. Lied and asked about their subordinates and graded you on if you supported them with their job.

The company did not pay the employers' federal and state taxes so that ex-employees can file for unemployment. This fact left me with no income!

They used the money to purchase new companies in the year 2017 which Constellis purchased 7 new companies but tried to sell but the company from another country did not want to buy due to misappropriation of funds.

stressful workplace
Housekeeping / Front desk (Former Employee) –  Moyock, NCFebruary 21, 2018
Good pay and benefits, long hours, not valued by company, in fear of losing job or being replaced constantly, little to no loyalty to seasoned employees that have been with the company years. Management out of touch with employees.
Pros
good pay
Cons
everything else

greedy company
Force Protection Officer (Current Employee) –  KuwaitSeptember 13, 2018
When it was Triple Canopy, it was great. Constellis took over and cut the insurance, base pay, bonus, and per diem. All of the projects are very undermanned forcing employees to work more with less. The company has no interest in trying to fix this, they offer small bonuses to new employees to not quit and those that have been there get nothing. The management on ground is fine, they seem to do the best they can with what they have, but the corporate office continues to avoid addressing the main problem; the pay. Officers are paid 12 hours a day but end up at work around 14 hours and travel 1-2 hours a day depending on what site your on. The medical insurance that we have doesn't work at most hospitals, even if its an emergency! It's not like America where they will treat you know matter what. The company has been made aware of this and still doesn't address the issue. New employees come in angry and tell stories of recruiters lying to them about the pay, living conditions, work load, etc. Also after talking to coworkers on other projects, they have all the same problems.
Pros
It's a job
Cons
Money, weather, location, no drinking, no clubs/bars, time off, lack of sleep, dangerous driving conditions.

Long hours and not enough sleep
Force Protection Officer (Current Employee) –  kuwaitAugust 2, 2018
working 12 hours out of the day and transportation is a total of 3 hours so we are working pretty much 15 hours out of the day. Well people are quitting because of the leadership and not paying enough to work these long hours.

Team Leader, Security Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Moyock, NCSeptember 18, 2018
You have to be aware of exactly what this job is. If you go into it understanding what you are there to do, you'll do fine. Find ways to stay productive and help out and you'll pass the time a lot faster.

My job at Constellis is very demanding and has alot of moving parts. You must be able to multitask and prioritize.
Travel Resource Specialist (Current Employee) –  Moyock, NCNovember 19, 2017
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.
Pros
Being able to work from home when I have sick kids and not being macro managed
Cons
The healthcare.

Prestigious and Secure place to work.
Security Guard (Current Employee) –  Moyock, NCFebruary 23, 2018
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.
Pros
Transport to and from work location, Prompt monthly payments, Free accommodation, Sponsored work permits, Global operation, multinational company.
Cons
contract work, No dental insurance, work in difficult environment, No paid vacation for contract workers.

Static Security Specialist (Current Employee) –  OCONUSJanuary 8, 2017
The pay is exceptional, compared to domestic jobs. The lack of job security, company dedication to those it employs and whimsical nature of the management with respect to pay and benefits is disconcerting.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No security or sense of loyalty or consideration from the employer

Corporate Treasurer & Risk Manager (Former Employee) –  Reston, VADecember 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.
Pros
Generous benefits
Cons
Very competitive industry due to military pull down in middle east
