    Fortune 500 or Bust !

    Director of Sales - Spirits (Current Employee)

    ProsGood starting point for young talent entering the industry, however future growth opportunities are somewhat limited in the sales area.

    ConsIt's all about the #'s. Make your case & depletion goals and you are a star. Don't make them and you are gone. They are good at growing big brands. However, they have a very poor record of developing new brands or having any patience to nurture and do the heavy lifting of real brand building. Please note that this is a wine company with Spirit brands. Fine Wines & On-Premise areas take a back seat to grocery or mass merchandiser channel management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job of evaluating and developing your bench by providing a succession plan for key employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Sales Organization

    Field Sales Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsSales org loaded with talented people. Good mix of young and enthusiastic and experienced and good mentors. Managers really care for their people. Heavy workload and high performance goals, but plenty of rewards to go along with them. Like working with friends. Very good senior management. Amazing wine and spirits portfolio. Good stock comp.

    ConsHigh expectations. Heavy workload. Not for the weak, but good for the strong. Used to change the structure frequently, but has been nice and stable for the past several years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep investing in the brands.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work, needs some tweaking

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe company is full of great people, has overall positive leadership, there's always lots going on and it's a good work environment.

    ConsSalaries aren't great, bonuses aren't effective at motivating. The company is moving towards centralized systems and it seems to be not well thought out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove salaries, create useful bonus systems, and give us some perks. It will make your staff happier, keep us with you longer and improve the company in the long run.

    Great work hard, play hard companie

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany strives for work hard, play hard concept. People tend to be highly experienced. There are very few employees with little experience. Generally, people stay at the company a long time. Many people truely love working here in alcohol beverage industry.

    ConsYou have to do your job and do it well, otherwise, this is a company that will let underperformers go. (Some may like a culture like that)

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide a way for general employee feedback, anonomously. There are a few people that may be poisining the great culture.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
