I worked at E. & J. Gallo

Pros

Great people working in a fun industry. Well established company which truly cares about its employees. Each day presents new challenges.

Cons

Work and personal life balance is not always the focus of all employees. Compensation and benefits may be lacking compared to publicly held companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build the passion that founded and built the company to what it is today in all employees. Wine is about celebrating life and the workplace should reflect that in all areas.

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo

    Pros

    Most of the people I met at EJ Gallo were friendly and professional, and they cared about the work they did. The Gallo family did strive to make working at their firm enjoyable with picnics and employee appreciation time. The laboratories I worked with were well equipped, and it was fairly easy to get necessary supplies.

    Cons

    Although the pay may be favorable compared to other food industry companies, but it is not good when compared to the rest of California, especially the Bay Area. The middle managers always seemed overworked and on the cusp of being "downsized". Turnover occurred constantly. As a result of changing personnel, priorities always were changing. Behind the scenes politics always seemed to play a role in decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to run a "Family" business, treat your employees more like family, instead of like expendables.

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo

    Pros

    Many opportunities for growth and development, cross functional training and assignments available for additional exposure. As long as you perform well, advancement opportunities come. The family atmosphere is is a welcome change from general corporate life. Yes, you need to work hard here but I have never done anything meaningful that I didn't have to work hard for. Have you? Our benefits package is excellent and Gallo even offers domestic partner benefits. There are a number of training programs available in addition to tuition reimbursement. And the company Wine Shop is an added perk! I enjoy working here and expect I will continue to do so for a long time...which is why you are considered a rookie with any less than 15 years here. Most people stay, which says a lot.

    Cons

    On occasion, there are people who are miserable in their jobs and nothing will make them happy. It's sad that we have had some of those people here who unfairly blame the company for their own lack of motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead with your soul, engage in the methodology of Servant Leadership in order to get the best out of your employees. Stay consistent and fair with open communciation, always.
