    Pros

    Discounts in the tasting room on wine

    Cons

    Management lies and the family does nothing to protect the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your core values and the people are your business.

    Pros

    Great Benefits at a low cost. Pleasant work place. Family business.

    Cons

    This company lacks promoting within, they don't look at the current longtime employees to fill management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Give the current employees a chance for promotions within the company. Reward them for their long time dedication to the company. Allow them to grow with the company.

    Pros

    They offer great benefits. Most seem happy to work here. Great job if you are not looking to furthering your career.

    Cons

    Top heavy in the management department. Too much micromanagement going on. No room for advancement unless you are "in" with management. If you are not happy in your department they would rather loose you then move you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the bottom level. It seems as tho sales and management are appreciated more then those of us that push paper work/wine along. We want the company to advance just as much as those at the top levels. We would like to share in the family attitude as well.

    I thought it was great until I got poisoned by the cyanide in their tank foam and they kicked me to the curb.

    Pros

    They have good benefits, great insurance, decent salary if you negotiate hard enough.

    Cons

    The IT management at the top is stubborn, old fashioned, and won't listen to facts presented by others. There is just enough knowledge to be dangerous. IT is located in trailers by the tank foaming and you have to breathe cyanide chemicals while walking outside to the bathrooms in another trailer. You better hope nothing goes wrong with your health, even if it's at their hands, or they will let you go with no compensation, even if you put in countless hours of overtime and do great work. I was stunned at their coldness, especially when they do such a hard sell of telling you they are a nice family company.

    Pros

    Good family environment and decent middle management. Lots of employee appreciation events.

    Cons

    Too strong HR influence, too many long tenured VPs that lack experience outside of this company. Pay is low for similar jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Retain talent and pay what is right. Recruit more talent for VP levels. Focus on developing team members and work to retain them.

    Pros

    Delicato has it all....amazing coworkers, opportunity for advancement and innovative thinking. The work/life balance is second to none and the owner truly care for their employees. Pay is comparable to industry standards and the benefits are top notch. This will be my career company!

    Cons

    The company is experiencing some phenomenal growth and with that brings growing pains. Some departments are struggling to keep pace with the demand. However, can't complain.

    Advice to Management

    Management should do a better job working together. Some silos in the company have been formed.


  10. Great atmosphere. The family really takes care of the employees.

    It's a great place to work.


  11. Poor pay for ridiculous standards, elitist management and an h/r dept that is sub-par to say the least

    Pros

    If you live in the central valley, it's a good location. That's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Management does not take care of it's employees. Pay is completely below industry standards-they try to be an "elite" brand but do not employ the "elite"-it's whoever they can get at the cheapest price, and quality of the wines reflect that in my opinion. No room for growth. Middle-management like the new h/r and plant director are prime examples-between the two depts hardly a lick of industry wine knowledge-how does that look during a TTB audit? That's shameful for a company trying to make itself known in the high-end marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Really look at the people you employ in middle management. I moved on to Napa to go more upscale, because this place is going nowhere with this management.
