I have been working at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Working in the wine industry is very cool in a sophisticated. The breadth and quality of the portfolio is awesome.The work is not very stressful. Colleagues are quite friendly.

Cons

It is difficult to work with outsourced technical people.
Computer systems are convoluted, poorly designed, and quite outdated.
Management direction seems to change like a jet ski on calm waters.
Lots of planning, not much for rubber hitting the road

Advice to Management

Technical employees are not commodities. Need better communication and attention to staff employees

    I have been working at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, strong brands and great hospitality sites.

    Cons

    Senior management continue to want to run a global business from Australia and the regions continue to suffer from inept management as a result. Many great people have departed the business over the past 12 - 18 months, frustrated and fed up with the attitude of senior management, their unwillingness to listen, or fully comprehend regional issues.

    Full bonuses have rarely been paid over the past 5 years as unrealistic targets are continually set for the business. Reporting lines all lead to Australia and support functions such as Finance, IT and HR are without local leadership and are floundering as a result.

    The strategy implemented by Australia is a global strategy not a regional strategy and as such takes into account no regional conditions or performance, and as is often the case bonuses are not paid as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to a local management team who understand the market and conditions and get the strategy aligned to the region. Many great people will continue to exit the business unless there is a real change in how the business is managed.

    I have been working at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, annual pay raises, bonuses, easy commute, work/life balance

    Cons

    The company is great except for the management. Management never returned phone calls or emails, no joke. Communication with other employees was just as bad. Upper management acknowledged the lack of communication but made an excuse for middle managers. IT staff was just bad and unresponsive and I am talking about the employees not the offshore folks. Nepotism was the norm one manager had 4 relatives working for the company in one manner or another. There are constant layoffs and you never feel like you have a stable job. Business is always shaky with very optimistic outlooks.

    Advice to Management

    Answer your phone calls and emails. You lost a great employee because of the lack of communication, think of all the other talent you have lost. You are left with an under skilled workforce.
