    I have been working at Delicato Family Wines full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    This is the first place I have ever worked where I was excited to come back from vacation. My team makes me feel needed and important. My opinions are taken into consideration and the decision making processes are transparent.

    Cons

    A touch of a commute for me, but worth it. Wish we could work from home a little more often, but the collaboration that is gained by having everyone here more often does pay off.

    Pros

    Good hours, good pay, alot of perks, good benefits, free wine, family oriented.

    Cons

    Bad management on the state compliance side and a lot of unprofessionalism. Management allows personal friendships and relationships to spill into the work place, causes drama, tension, unfair treatment, favoritism and retaliation because concerns are not addressed properly because management and coworkers are close friends. Does not offer formal or much training to new hires and sets them up for failure. I do not recommend...

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to take a look at lower/mid management level and talk to other associates about their thoughts and feelings about what is going on, many are unhappy about the ethics, behavior, and treatment of select employees, and it is NEVER properly addressed, its swept under the rug because they are friends with management. There is alot going on in that department that is not ethical or professional.

    Pros

    This is the BEST company I have ever worked for! Everyone is so collaborative and works hard to move the business forward. Leadership is approachable and proactive at predicting and solving problems so you don't feel panic reactions, which makes for a great environment. Work-life balance is great, benefits and compensation are definitely fair and better than the competition. Private company- family owned- great culture-...

    There are some growing pains with a company growing so fast- but the pros outweigh the cons by far- and they are so quick to respond and solve any issues that I can't complain.

    Pros

    Delicato is finally transforming into the company it was meant to be after ridding itself of some cancerous management leads and replacing them with professionals worthy of representing the great family who owns this company. Definitely heading in the right direction for growth with a new level of professionalism that previously scared potential new hires away. It truly is a great place to work if you are a passionate...

    Cons

    Changing culture and ways of working require both patience and employees to jump in and problem solve, collaborate and see bigger picture opportunities (as well as manage tons of emails!) Sadly, historical Sales Management created negative environment that held back the company internally and externally. Now Delicato is on a new path and employees must be ready to jump in and overcome historical bias and embrace the...

    Advice to Management

    Better train managers for change management and the elevated expectations across behavior and performance since cutting off "head of snake" (as previously referenced in posts). Delicato is a great place to work and the family is lovely. Need to shake former reputation in sales with both customers and distributors.

    I worked at Delicato Family Wines full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Family owned, not family run anymore, sad. Good benefits and holidays off. Nothing more good to say. They want me to say more good things for the 20 word minimum, but have nothing else.

    Cons

    Numerous reviews have been deleted from this site, due to pressure from the HR department at Delicato, this site has now lost credibility. Do not come to this site for the truth on Delicato, it’s a corporate company sight. 5 individuals have left reviews in the last 60 days and they all have been erased....no credibility here.

    Cons

    A little behind in times in regards to systems but they are working on new systems. Older facilities - but new buildings in the future. Pay is a little low in some roles compared to other companies

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look into pay scale of the area - retain your best folks by raising that bar. This company is so great we should hit all the marks, not just a few.
