    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The People - They are genuinely nice and make up the entire company. Respect - This is very clear as soon as you walk in the door. Everyone respects the other. There is no not saying hello to a VP level of averting a gaze from as higher up. (Which was very prominent at my last company.) Integrity - Most straight forward and honest people I've ever worked with Humility and Caring - All the family members who work here...

    Cons

    Challenging to find an opening because not many ever leave this company!

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Leadership positions are filled with highly qualified people. This translates into business units that are well managed and productive. Excellent growth opportunities if you set goals and go after them. This is a company that quite a few folks have called home for careers that span decades. People enjoy working for the Gallo Winery. It's stable, modern and innovative!

    Cons

    The medical benefit program can be an annoyance at times. Health is important, but I am not sure that I approve of the current Vitality program's health assessment penalty system. Increasing monthly healthcare costs for an employee that fails to meet the Vitality program standards is (IMHO) invasive. Vitality should be voluntary and free from penalties. (again, IMHO)

    Pros

    People love working here and it shows and it also makes you want to enjoy the work you do. Thus there's a lot of pride in each person's contributions. Leadership is very accessible and supportive of you as a person. Pay is very objective, transparent, and fair. Promotions are merit based and allow for quick recognition.

    Cons

    Currently lots of movement with a new ERP system and the recently announced acquisition is leading to some temporary uncertainty. The parental paid leave policies are lagging. Only one week of company paid paternity leave currently.

    Advice to Management

    Largely continue to keep doing what you're doing. Look into some benefits more valuable to your younger workforce, such as extended paid parental leave and student loan assistance.
