I have been working at E. & J. Gallo

Pros

Gallo pay average compensation for the central valley area
Low Cost of living area, it very cheap to live in Modesto

Cons

Gallo runs on an extremely silo'ed bureaucracy where selected MBA's are given preferential treatment for advancement. There are a lot of technical tools but very few of them leverage effectivly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Flatten the reporting structure. Force every manager to have 5 direct reports or more. Cut do nothing paper pushers out of the organization. Senior management seems to know a lot about wine, but IT is not their primary thing.

    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.
