Just a place to work, not a career and is primarily a bad place

I worked at Winebow full-time

Pros

Young workforce, a somewhat vibrant work environment. Employee discounts on wine and spirits. Very little cons working at this organization.

Cons

Many downsides with this company. -Little upward mobility and lower than average pay. Employees with more responsibities and better performances could be paid less than other employees that have less responsibilities -No performance review procedures put into place by HR leader - No objective, progress on objectives and final review process in place for all employees. -Poor senior management on the Import side. Very little positive interaction and movement on new and better strategies. The company's systems and reporting abilities need to be upgraded and streamlined to the rest of the market. The budgeting process is very crueling as many employees lack technical skills to produce efficient and efffective reporting and many tasks are done manually. There is very little plannning done when new processes and strategies are put into place causing much confustion and discontent between workers. -Response time for email responses are consistantly later than usual. -President never address's the employees in meetings on the performance of the company. I worked there for about 2 years and the only time he addressed the employees is when layoffs occured. The ownership of the company is primary of the interest of a small board of directors who are not known by a common employee.

Advice to Management

Senior mangement needs to plan better and recognize which employees are good performers and weed out the ones that do not perform to expectations.

    Pros

    Wine at cost; Not to many other perks I can think of.

    Cons

    Lots of work with very limited resources. No room for growth and lots of old manual ways of doing business. So many acquisitions that employees can't keep up with influx of new business.

    I have been working at Winebow full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great deals on fine wines and spirits. Wonderful product line. Home office. That is it. Not too many pros.

    Cons

    Time off, Health insurance, new commission structure. Not giving support staff what they need so my job becomes more difficult

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating the place like a personal wallet and hire more support staff and pay industry standards including vacation time and holidays.
