Pros

People were great, the job was great, but losing a great job, not so great.

Cons

The re-org(s) were a nightmare to live through. If you enjoy looking over your shoulder half the day and wondering if you're next, please, join this company. If you look at yourself like a contractor when you go in, then it won't be so bad when you are shown the door. If you are looking for a place to stay employed long term, maybe this is not the place for you.

    Pros

    Location (near Boston), nice colleagues, good brand equity, reasonable pay and benefits package, very few other CPG options in Boston

    Cons

    Welch's lacks the resources of a smaller CPG but is surprisingly slow to market for its size - the worst of a large and a small company, all rolled in one

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people. Allow them to make and own recommendations, without fear of backlash when those recommendations aren't popular. Put yourself in your employees' shoes.

    Caveat emptor - Welch's could be great.....but isn't, and won't get there soon.

    Pros

    Work/life balance, though this has slipped considerably in last couple of years (2007/2008). Lots of people have left the company in last 18 months due to the bad environment here.

    Cons

    Very challenging business conditions - run by a cooperative of grape growers who are focused on very short-term profits; very limited ability to invest in upgrades to infrastructure that are very badly needed. Extremely limited in ability to invest in supporting the business (advertising/promotions/new products).

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees to do more -they are willing, capable people who care. Get out of the way and let them do their jobs.
