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.

    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.

    Pros

    The people that work at Welch's are good, solid people that get along well together and take pride in doing a good job. The company properly allows for a good work/life balance. Depending on the department working from home sometimes during the month can be an option.

    Cons

    The company sometimes has a hard time staying focused on their core values with strategies changing often
