    I worked at Constellation Software full-time

    Pros

    Good growth prospects. Refined business model. Good place to be if your only focus is on how you can make the business money.

    Cons

    Perceived lack of communication across operating groups at lower levels of the business. Highly decentralized. Poor HR practices. Management focused solely on revenue targets. You're likely to be treated as a number by management (certain operating groups only). Poor retention of younger employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better HR talent. Treat employees as more than just numbers. While revenue and growth is a critical component, focused on talent satisfaction and retention.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Constellation Software

      Pros

      - The company do pretty well on stock exchange - Managers and accountants get promoted easily - Growning business buying small IT companies

      Cons

      - The worst salary I saw on the IT market for a software developper - They buy IT companies to produce more and more profit, but they don't care about their growth after that. - No professionnal development possible for IT people (Except if someone leave the place!) - Hard to get a salary raise even with experience here (2% annually with a low base salary when hired) You remember the James Bond movies featuring...
