    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo

    Pros

    There is no other company that provides the professional growth, diversity of work and experience, in a setting with such amazingly talented employees here in the Central Valley of CA. The Company's values align with mine and the team work, respect, appreciation, and innovation that is driven and modeled from Sr. leadership down in this business is unparalleled.

    Cons

    The challenge is how do you continue to keep up with the pace of growth and ensure your work/life balance remains in place. But that is a personal accountability vs. a Company.

    Pros

    Gallo does an excellent job at recruiting for their offices and hire some of the best, hardworking and driven people. They also do their best to promote internally as much as possible.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to achieve a healthy work life balance at the beginning, and it takes a while to get to know your coworkers since you're not in an office every day.
