I have been working at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Working in the wine industry is very cool in a sophisticated. The breadth and quality of the portfolio is awesome.The work is not very stressful. Colleagues are quite friendly.

Cons

It is difficult to work with outsourced technical people.
Computer systems are convoluted, poorly designed, and quite outdated.
Management direction seems to change like a jet ski on calm waters.
Lots of planning, not much for rubber hitting the road

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Technical employees are not commodities. Need better communication and attention to staff employees

    Pros

    Great people to work with, strong brands and great hospitality sites.

    Cons

    Senior management continue to want to run a global business from Australia and the regions continue to suffer from inept management as a result. Many great people have departed the business over the past 12 - 18 months, frustrated and fed up with the attitude of senior management, their unwillingness to listen, or fully comprehend regional issues.

    Full bonuses have rarely been paid over the past 5 years as unrealistic targets are continually set for the business. Reporting lines all lead to Australia and support functions such as Finance, IT and HR are without local leadership and are floundering as a result.

    The strategy implemented by Australia is a global strategy not a regional strategy and as such takes into account no regional conditions or performance, and as is often the case bonuses are not paid as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to a local management team who understand the market and conditions and get the strategy aligned to the region. Many great people will continue to exit the business unless there is a real change in how the business is managed.

    Pros

    Excellent CA wine brand portfolio. Good starting salaries.

    Cons

    Inept upper management. Must be an Australian or connected to one to advance. Slow to react to market. Croneyism. Short term focus. Often put unqualified people into roles. Australian "way of doing things" not effective. Sr VP of Production surrounds himself with incompetent "yes people" to make himself feel better. Last two CEOs have been absolutely terrible--incompetent Managers.
