Pros

A good company with good benefits. They treat there employees well and have a good outlook on operating in a changing environment.

Cons

As a large adult beverage company it is hard to feel like what you are doing is meaningful, however, the company trys to be very responsible, and supports safe drinking and consumption practices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company does a good job keeping most employees informed of the doings of the company. The company however needs to learn how to manage wine business better, as a large spirits company, they often try to market and treat the wine busenesses they own the same. The fact is the markets are very different and the wine business does not have nearly the profit margin, and inherantly needs more financial input to recieve the returns that can keep the wine side of BF afloat.

    Pros

    Well above average pay and benefits, lots of parties during work hours. Most of the people within the company are friendly and want to do a good job

    Cons

    All decisions are coming from the CEO only. Sr. leadership very, very weak and not at all supportive of the team. Culture has changed 180 degrees over past 2 yrs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look back to how you got to where you are. Leadership is void---everyone manages to numbers forgeting the brand needs
