Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Location (near Boston), nice colleagues, good brand equity, reasonable pay and benefits package, very few other CPG options in Boston

Cons

Welch's lacks the resources of a smaller CPG but is surprisingly slow to market for its size - the worst of a large and a small company, all rolled in one

Advice to Management

Empower your people. Allow them to make and own recommendations, without fear of backlash when those recommendations aren't popular. Put yourself in your employees' shoes.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work/life balance, though this has slipped considerably in last couple of years (2007/2008). Lots of people have left the company in last 18 months due to the bad environment here.

    Cons

    Very challenging business conditions - run by a cooperative of grape growers who are focused on very short-term profits; very limited ability to invest in upgrades to infrastructure that are very badly needed. Extremely limited in ability to invest in supporting the business (advertising/promotions/new products).

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees to do more -they are willing, capable people who care. Get out of the way and let them do their jobs.

    "Manager"

    I worked at Welch's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - People
    - Casual culture and environment in the office.
    - Challenging business environment that keeps you on your toes
    - excellent pay, benefits and office / building

    Cons

    - Tough category right now
    - A bit antiquated in regards to moving things forward
    - Innovation is slow to market
    - processes can bog folks down

    Advice to Management

    Bring some folks from the outside in; there are a lot of long tenured employees there that do not have a lot of practical business experience. It is invaluable to see things through another set of eyes and the hard working people can benefit from that.
