    Pros

    Immediate vacation, awesome compensation and opportunities to advance within the company. Fun sales meetings where you get to drink and social events with free booze.

    Cons

    No work/life balance, no holidays to spend with family, typically working Sunday through Friday, work follows you home (emails, texts, phone calls)

    Advice to Management

    As far as any advice goes, I don't really have any for upper management. Things were different for each division. Good experience overall, I just didn't fit with the job lifestyle.

    One team, one dream. Everyone helps everyone out and is more like family than co workers.

    Not much to say here. Communication sometimes lacks, but it does everywhere.

    Pros

    Wine Division is well run and managed. Most of the managers help prep their reps and train them to be great salesmen in their territories.

    Cons

    Management is always changing and does not look out for their reps during transition. No Career advancement unless you are friends with them outside of work.The Combo division is unorganized and you do not get paid commission. The goals do not match up with the territories you are assigned which sets you up for failure/not reaching goals and making bonus money.

    Advice to Management

    Help your reps grow and reward them for their hard work.
