    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Passionate employees committed to achieving. Career growth opportunities, always expanding portfolio, continuous learning, fun industry. Everyday I love going to work and no day is ever the same. Gallo empowers you to grow and encourages innovation, by not accepting status quo.

    Cons

    If you do not enjoy a fast paced, high energy culture then it might not be the best fit. As part of a quickly changing industry, the team needs to flexibility to adjust and confidence to try ideas.

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time

    Pros

    Amazing work/life balance
    Amazing benefits
    Generous 401k and profit sharing

    Cons

    Politics rule the roost in many department. If you are not part of the inner fraternity, you quickly find yourself on the sidelines.
    Its about who you know and not what you do. Investing in key relationships is key to success, not the quality of work you do

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent with employees on their career path and give honest feedback to work performance. Setup clear expectations for each department and where its going

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Wine Business is a fun and innovative industry. Health benefits at Gallo are great. Employees get some perks like wine discounts and wine education classes. Work from home Fridays is also a great option to make work bearable after commuting all week.

    Cons

    Gallo is a culture that works their people to the bone- people are stretched too thin and no one feels valued. Promotions and development opportunities are "luck" of the draw when someone quits or vacates a job. Not enough pay for the amount of work you do if you are a high performer.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and be transparent about expectations. The constant rumor mill causes issues and managers need to learn to be leaders. Communication is lacking with management to associates and staff groups.

    Pros

    The work is challenging, rewarding, and balanced with real life. Family values shine through day to day. Great pay, benefits, and people.

    Organization of tasks and responsibilities could use revision. Many people perform beyond their job function, making systemized process and capabilities difficult.
