    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 (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, excellent management, growing and interesting industry, company wine shop, what's not to like! Also, you can tell the company is working hard to be a top notch employer.

    Cons

    Modesto is a little isolated, but it grows on you after a while. A good place to raise a family.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing.

    Great part time work for the time I had available while working another part time job. Worked around my schedule. Very supportive supervisor.

    Pre-employment background company was very frustrating to work with.

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The company treats its employees really well. - Various activities and services to assist employees and increase morale (i.e. excercise reward program, wine discounts, etc). - Decent amount of responsibility, which led to a lot of good experience. - Very hands off approach, but lots of resources and approachable engineers and managers made working on projects challenging but doable. - Very professional, yet friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    - Sometimes there's a bit of a communication disconnect between departments. - There wasn't always a clear path between doing a good job on the internship, being liked by your coworkers and supervisors, and being hired by a pertinent party for a full time position. - The city/area is not the best region to live in. ( A lot of people commute)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on offering options to help with work/life balance and seeking to keep employees happy. Employees have a lot of company loyalty and perform better this way.

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo as an intern (Less than a year)

    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.
