    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Management leads by example. The organization feels very flat and each executive is approachable, following the company mantra of "we don't work with jerks". CEO and CSO know everyone's name and thank them for their work.
    Each individual is given the opportunity to make meaningful contributions from day 1 and managers recognize and reward achievements.
    The product portfolio is strong and the company is well positioned.
    You have the opportunity to develop newer, better ways of doing things and make your mark.
    Compensation is very good.

    Cons

    Not a lot of fixed best-practices and little formal training.
    Some of the systems are antiquated.
    This is a lean organization, which can cut both ways. It sometimes feels like there is a lack of resources, but that is probably better than being a bloated organization.
    Ownership feels a little like a secret society. The path to achieving this status should be more clear.

    Advice to Management

    Institute more formal training, both during on-boarding and on a continuing basis. Instead of being the biggest wine company that no one has ever heard of, TWG should strive to be well known as best-in-class for quality, efficiency, professionalism and culture.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Wine Group (Ripon, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The second interview process was okay but there is a definite disconnect between older and newer workers. The company wants people who have been doing one job for years to start taking on more responsibility. This is often difficult to get them to do and they would have to hire younger more hungry workers. Not gonna happen and they need some help on this one.
