    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.

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Because Gallo is family owned we are afforded many opportunities not readily available to publically traded companies. Such benefits are that employees across every functional area can enjoy employment longevity and highly stable careers. We experience very little turnover, even during economic recession, and have more flexibility in our budgeting decisions to reduce the need for layoffs. There are many ways to grow your career, before looking externally Gallo will make every attempt to promote from within. There are also plenty of chances to work cross functionally to explore other departments and even go International. Employees also have greater trust in the leaders of the organization and the decisions they make. The cultural belief at Gallo is every employee should be treated as though they were a member of the family, regardless of their last name.

    Cons

    Work life balance is promoted but isn't a reality for everyone. I believe part of the problem is many processes are outdated throughout different departments and people are forced to work harder versus smarter. We are going through a period of growth and hopefully the onboarding will lead to streamlined processes. I view this as a selling point for those who want to build and put their mark on something impactful.

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo full-time

    Pros

    Industry Leader, More progressive than others within the company. Privately owned, fantastic co-workers, strong company values.

    Cons

    Exhaustive, work / life balance is difficult to balance, holding a 40-hour work week may seem a bit slacking, compared to your counterparts.

    Advice to Management

    Try to walk to talk - by stressing how importance work / life is - try to really support it.
