    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

    Great salary range, competitive with Bay Area market. Good Benefits also.

    Cons

    No Work-life balance. Employees promoted too quickly, staff does not have enough experience in their current jobs, being promoted into the next. Too much turn-over in employees, no one knows what they're doing most of the time. The underlings get blamed, this creates stress that's really unnecessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You know the problems, fix them before its too late.

    Pros

    Pay, if your on the union side.

    Cons

    Work life balance, a lot of politics, favoritism, and you dont get much help from management unless you have a college degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust in your employees to do the job that they were hired for and not to micro manage everything.

    Great Company, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Management only cares about themselves and what is in it for them.

    Do what is best for the company instead of where you are going next. If you do a good job you will get there any ways.
