    Pros

    -- Very good compensation compared to other Central Valley companies
    -- Fun environment, friendly, people-focused
    -- Professional organization, successful, award-winning, strong brand recognition
    -- Great opportunities to grow professionally within the company
    -- Longevity of employees, some working with company 10 to 35 years - very stable
    -- New opportunities to work with latest technology, company not stuck in a technical rut at all
    -- Progressive use of technology, great way to keep technical skills sharp if you are in the IT group
    -- Recognition for work well done

    Cons

    -- Would love more opportunity to tele-commute
    -- Company is too selective when hiring people when resources are needed
    -- Sometimes a little political, but then, all companies are from my experience

    Advice to Management

    -- Provide more tele-commuting opportunities
    -- Stop being so overly picky when people need to be hired in IT, a lot of people that have been in the department for many years and have provided a good contribution started their jobs not knowing everything... did you know everything when you started, after all... just give people a chance... we need the help
    -- Be more flexible in compensation when hiring if a little bit more allows us to bring in better folks


  2. "Great company for the competitive or those who want to get their foot in the wine industry."

    Pros

    It really has a great sales training program and dedicated staff. If you are interested in getting in on the bottom floor of the wine industry or you are just really competitive, then you should consider this as an option.

    Cons

    The pay could always be better for the amount of work that is done, and there is a good amount of manual labor in this job, so be weary of that.

    Advice to Management

    They do a great job. But, they do need to plan ahead further for training purposes.
