"A good place to work but not to grow"

Pros

Good pay and benefits relative to other wine industry employers. Many individual managers are committed to creating a good product and a positive environment.

Cons

Poor communication from management, poor advancement opportunities, overemphasis on short-term growth rather than long-term stability. There is very little importance placed on developing employees as a long-term investment; people are expected to move on rather than to grow into new positions.

Advice to Management

Fill upper management positions with people who understand the beverage business, including wine, rather than with people who are primarily sales or HR managers. Consider decentralizing senior management so that employees around the world have more contact with and communication from you and can better understand your goals.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Constellation Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay and benefits. That's it.

    Cons

    no work life balance; no room to learn, grow or be promoted; awful processes without any opportunities for changing; understaffed; terrible management -- the worst I've ever had. There's no respect or support for their team

    Advice to Management

    Know how to do the job of your direct reports. Don't do it, just know what it is that they do, how long it takes, what works and what doesn't work. If you don't know what their day to day looks like, you can't possibly understand their work load, priorities, stresses and concerns. You won't notice when they go above and beyond because you just dismiss it as their job when in fact you don't even know what their job entails.
