    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.

  2. Very thriving company.

    Pros

    Good company, great benefits, close for hometown employees not to commute. Company had been around for decades. I know a few people who work for this company and enjoy it.

    Cons

    I do not know of any challenges working fire this company since I am not employees with this company. I have only heard the good about this company.

    Advice to Management

    No advice at this time.

    Pros

    I never felt like I was "just an intern" - you are treated as an equal. They emphasize that they are a family and you feel the strong sense of community. The people were so welcoming and helpful. We had great opportunities like meeting with the important people, facility tours, and wine training. My managers really cared about me and I felt like they genuinely wanted me to succeed.

    Cons

    Not much other than the fact that since the company is family-oriented, family members and legacies are given first priority. Also, Modesto is not the most glamorous city in the world but it's not a terrible place either.

  6. Great family run global organization

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Pay, if your on the union side.

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

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