I worked at E. & J. Gallo

Pros

Great colleagues and compensation, which however seems to little for having to deal with incompetent managers and having to live in Modesto,CA.

Cons

Senior management was not up to the project requirements. Utter lack in leadership and technical expertise to warrant the on time delivery of important company wide projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A drastic change in senior management needs to occur. The in-house grown managers only appear to understand how to brown-nose, and not how to lead teams.

    Pros

    Good Health care options. Outstanding company 401k contributions. The company is very stable. IT training budget is very good (books, training all can be expensed). Vacation / sick time is very generous.

    Cons

    Intensely political environment. Upper management asks opinions of workerbees only to get the answers they want to hear; those who voice objection or concern are considered to be troublemakers. Bias and cronyism factor heavily into performance evaluations and promotions. The environment is very politically conservative. Pay is below industry average for most white-collar jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept the fact that you don't know everything; it's OK to listen to the advice of non-managers sometimes. Consider promoting based on merit, rather than simply on who shmoozes the best.

    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.
