    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo

    Pros

    The pay is ok, also the vacation is great

    Cons

    Equality is not there & everyone feels they deserve a sense of entitlement.

    A piece of paper dosen't necessarily make you a smarter person.

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company focuses on long term growth. Months and quarters pass without the typical corporate push to make numbers. Family is very involved in day to day business. A very detail oriented leadership style. Company is focused on being best in class. Pay is well for the area and bonus always pays nice due to growth of company. Company treats employees well with lots of little perks, dinner's, picnic's, etc.

    Cons

    Leadership is not aligned. No COO creates a large gap in the organization. Politics and relationship based culture slow down progress. Analysis paralysis and micromanaging can be frustrating and delay progress. Lack of empowerment for employees as detailed decisions are made at a high level. Not much room for growth. Company is slow to promote.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees to make decisions.

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo

    Pros

    Large company, great exposure, I learned a lot that applied elsewhere, compensation was good for recent college grad, drank wine during work hours couple of times each month, awesome wine discounts, health insurance was good

    Cons

    70+ hour work weeks, no life work balance, lots and lots of butt kissing required to get promotion, raises were minimal, and it was very common for people to get laid off and/or let go after putting in 15+ years only to be replaced by cheaper labor

    Pros

    A case of wine towards the end of the year, every year. Softball tournament every year within the company. Yearly team outing activity. Breath taking walking path around the admin building.

    Cons

    Management care too much about their bonuses and checking off a check box taking on more projects then head count can account for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to direct underlings about certain individuals not competent enough to perform job duty and yet still gets promotion and get's praised for doing research for a project.

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

    Pros

    Good hourly rate and wide exposure to different company departments. Gallo has a very friendly culture and just about everyone you talk to is willing to stop what they are doing and help you.

    Cons

    Worked a lot of overtime. Plan on working strange hours if you are placed with a research team. Other interns that I worked with had a fairly normal schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would have been great to have a little more background information for interns who join an ongoing project. Other than that, GREAT JOB!
