I have been working at Southern Wine & Spirits of America full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

You get to taste wines and spirits that you'll never be able to afford.

Cons

Relentless priorities. Drill sergeant management mentality "Just get it done"! Executives that don't walk the talk. Management that wants to be a TOP rated and respected consumer products company but have never worked in one resulting in dismal direction and vision. It's all about todays profit and worry about tomorrow tomorrow. Sales training efforts in direct conflict with business approach and direction.

I'll never forget NYE and my boss explains that I won't make my bonus because it was a bad year for the company. 2 hours later, 3 cases of Dom Perignon are rolled into the executive conference room and lunch catered in. Some folks made their bonus! Really?

Family owned companies are usually great to work for but not this one.
