    I have been working at Bronco Wine Co. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Bronco Wine Co.holds employees accountable, your expected to work. It's the land of oppurtunity, I love it.

    Cons

    No cons for me, I go to work do my job, get paid. LIFE is good

    Advice to Management

    Bronco Management is strong, very strong, it's not top heavy like other companies. Managers report directly to the owners daily. We are all on the same page, same team. Bronco Proud.

    I have been working at Bronco Wine Co. (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Benefits can be good

    Cons

    Bronco thrives on a motivational path of fear and degradation. Managers threaten you with losing your job, and look for spots of weakness ( family, kids ) and runs fear based motivation to work

    Advice to Management

    Take every DM, Regional and Key account manager and change the attitude of fear based, black mailing, back bitting, micromanaging. Bronco goes thru good people like water.

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy, free wine.

    Cons

    Only 5 days of vacation per year after 1 year and this goes on for 5 years. Little to no training for reps and it is obvious the management has no formal training either.

    Advice to Management

    Create a training Manuel.

    Pros

    Hard working, loyal folks who get a lot done. Flat organizational structure helps to make things happen at a much faster place than other wineries where I have worked. Access to ownership and management is open.

    Cons

    Crush is a busy time so if you like your summer's off, don't work for an agriculturally-based firm.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your family-friendly atmosphere.

    Pros

    There are no pros from my standpoint with this company

    Cons

    I started working here under the seasonal racker/blender position to bring in money for my family while in the D.E.P (Delayed Entry Program) for the United States Navy, as required by my D.E.P I was to inform my employer of my status and needing 2 days off a month with 2-3 week notice for my obligations with the Navy. After not being after to see the cellar master for a week due to all sorts of run-around reasons I finally get an audience and explain my situation and immediately see a pull-back as if I'm no longer worth investing in, this reaction was the same from my foreman up to the cellar master. A few shifts later I show up to work and my badge no longer works, no communication from ANYBODY to explain why, I call and leave a message or 3 to the HR representative and hear nothing back for 2 days, then I receive a call saying my check is ready to be picked up at the guard shack - still with no information as to what happened. I pick up my check which came in a little envelope from the guard really fast who had nothing to say to me, read the letter of termination which still has zero reason on it so I proceed to get in touch with HR once more, this time they tell me I was terminated due to not showing up, obviously not the reason so I explain my situation to the representative who has no answers for me and proceeds to get her supervisor. The supervisor now gives me a different reason : attendance, once again not the scenario and as I am explaining to her my side and trying to understand why all of a sudden I get this treatment she proceeds to hang up on me mid-sentence, I call back to immediate voicemail after 2 or so rings repeatedly. Assuming she is clearly avoiding conversation with me I leave a message for somebody else to get back to me and after another conversation I get told yet a different reason for my termination was my performance now without any sort of coaching or any issues in the 5-6 days I had been working there now I have been terminated for performance. All and all the company is incredibly shady and can't seem to get it's reasons straight for firing somebody who needs time off due to their obligations to the military and I would most definitely not recommend this company as it is not going to be worth your time or effort.

    Advice to Management

    Communication to staff and chain of command would go a long way in getting your ducks in a row.
