Pros

Fantastic people, fascinating industry, fast-paced, high level of employee engagement. As an employee, you're able to have a significant direct impact on the business and the company's success. The company is big enough that there are a lot of resources, opportunities, and the ability to move across the organization based on your career interests. It's small enough that it still feels easy to navigate and build key relationships. The private ownership provides financial stability and a focus on sustainability. This is a great place to grow your career long-term. The dynamic industry presents a lot of exciting challenges, there are a wide variety of career opportunities to keep you growing and developing your skills, and the great people make it fun to come to work each day. Many of my colleagues have been here 15+ years, and they're still excited to come to work each day thanks to the fun of the industry and the great people.

Cons

The only downside I've seen is the fact that the company is located in Modesto. However, there are actually a few wins here: 1) Centrally located to a lot of amazing weekend adventures. Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Napa/Sonoma, San Francisco, and the Pacific Ocean are all less than 2 hours away. If you love skiing, mountains, and the outdoors, this can be a big advantage compared to the Bay Area. 2) Much lower cost of living than anywhere else in CA. You can buy a 3BR/2BA 2K square foot house for $350K or less. 3) Warm weather year round. Dry and sunny nearly every day.

    I worked at E. & J. Gallo Winery (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great reputation. Easy to land a job outside the industry.

    Cons

    Horrendously inexperienced management, terrible hours, no commission (incentive trips are great but hard to stay motivated when you only want to attend some), lack of care for the general well-being of employees, absolutely no guidance, promises of earlier promotions for working hard on surveys (which ultimately are just a showcase to the distributor that for one day everything us executed to a T), company really makes you feel worthless

    Advice to Management

    Just because the method you've been using for the past 10+ years has been working doesn't mean it's the best method. Act like you care about all of your employees, not just a select few. Help individuals grow rather than breaking them down to be gallo robots
