    Pros

    Coworkers are great
    Benefit structure
    Amazing wines
    Annual company survey

    Cons

    Most Departments do not have a career path.
    Often feels like an old boys club.
    No mentorship program or interest from management to advance/grow middle management.
    There is not a lot of emphasis on investing or advancing technology.
    Company publicly encourages people to leave after a year and come back so they can advance.

    Advice to Management

    The annual survey is a great tool. I hope it can encourage executives to look at the department heads and make sure that their leadership and messaging is aligned with the company's. It often appears that not all departments are created equal. Post jobs rather than just internally shifting positions so employees have a career path and know what they can aspire to.

  3. Management do not walk what they talk. Unfairness in the ranks.

    Pros

    Beautiful properties, wonderful wines, a lot of talent in the lower and mid management ranks

    Cons

    Fear of upper management. Upper management do not walk what they talk. Those who produce great results are not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of talent in the ranks. Get to know your mid-level manager and experts who know your products. They are passionate and not being recognized. Executives and upper management do not let ideas and initiatives get recognized that could benefit the organization.

    Pros

    Tons of growth potential within the company. The company is always purchasing new vineyards across the world and developing new brands and it creates jobs and opportunities. The wine perks are great! A lot of the employees are awesome and nice and love the company and it's generally a very positive place to be. The wine is truly wonderful quality and that is something the company could and should be proud of.

    Cons

    Could benefit from a formal training process. Higher pay and better benefits are a frequent request.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. Wines are great.

    Cons

    The one gushing review on this site from a director says “Best company I have ever work at." No comment necessary.

    Very poor leadership from CEO. Pay is terrible. Main office facility feels like a prison.

    Advice to Management

    Replace poor leadership already!

    Get to sell the #1 chardonnay, some pretty good field managers, nice expense account

    Cons

    A bit of a goo ol boys club once you start talking about management that is hard to break into if you aren't accepted as part of the crew

    Advice to Management

    Get some younger and hungry managers
