Pros

A good company with good benefits. They treat there employees well and have a good outlook on operating in a changing environment.

Cons

As a large adult beverage company it is hard to feel like what you are doing is meaningful, however, the company trys to be very responsible, and supports safe drinking and consumption practices.

Advice to Management

The company does a good job keeping most employees informed of the doings of the company. The company however needs to learn how to manage wine business better, as a large spirits company, they often try to market and treat the wine busenesses they own the same. The fact is the markets are very different and the wine business does not have nearly the profit margin, and inherantly needs more financial input to recieve the returns that can keep the wine side of BF afloat.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Well above average pay and benefits, lots of parties during work hours. Most of the people within the company are friendly and want to do a good job

    Cons

    All decisions are coming from the CEO only. Sr. leadership very, very weak and not at all supportive of the team. Culture has changed 180 degrees over past 2 yrs.

    Advice to Management

    Look back to how you got to where you are. Leadership is void---everyone manages to numbers forgeting the brand needs

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great brands, great people locally at street level generally.
    Decent bonuses, assuming plan was met, and generall was or close to.

    Cons

    Finance was running the company. Everything was black and white, without room for any gray area at all.. Not fun anymore. The company used to be a fun place to work, but has since become un-fun as the power was taken away from the local folks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people in the field. Let them make good responsible decisions. Take a chance, look outside the box, and then have the nerve to act on what you see outside the box.
