    I worked at Francis Ford Coppola Presents part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits. FFC is a truly good hearted individual. Lots of positive encouragement from supervisors.

    Cons

    Long time employees are favored and allowed to violate company policies. Newbies have no credibility. HR and upper mgmt turn a blind eye.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hold tenure employees to same standards as others when it comes to company violations no matter how long they've been there or how talented you think they are. Upholding family values.

    I have been working at Francis Ford Coppola Presents for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits package, friendly employees, opportunities for promotion, excellent employee training and wine education programs - some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    The pay grade is on the lower side of the industry spectrum. As a large winery, FC Presents is highly departmentalized, resulting in an information silo. There is a lack of direct communication between upper management and the boots on the ground. Suggesting and implementing ideas can be a bureaucratic process, having to go through many channels and having to be approved by people who are far removed from a...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate honestly and unequivocally with staff, and give employees an avenue to make their voices/ideas heard. Reward and allow those with merit and practical experience to have more influence in decision making.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Francis Ford Coppola Presents full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great coworkers, fast paced, good benefits, company recognition (which is great for resume building).

    Cons

    High burnout, lack of transparency from management, secrecy and closed doors. High gossip environment. Information silos. Old boys club. Sexism. Key information like revenue or new business verticals were not shared, so employees had little information about the state of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Openness. Actionable HR (HR should work to protect the employees, not the people at the top).

    I worked at Francis Ford Coppola Presents full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good learning and room for growth. Easy to get onboard and there is a LOT of training programs on site.

    Cons

    Disorganized upper management, no one takes responsibility for their actions or mistakes, stuff trickles down hill and senior management just points the finger at someone below them. FFC is also becoming senile at his age and his ideas/requests can be a bit ridiculous and not cost effective.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your middle management and treat them better before they all leave you.

    I worked at Francis Ford Coppola Presents

    Pros

    Free wine and a pretty winery and good discounts. Also Coppola has a good reputation so for a career perspective it will be a good thing you worked here when you leave to your next place.

    Cons

    They always say they promote from within but I never saw it. In fact the opposite. The only people who got a raise or new title were the managers and but the rest of us didn't and should have. In fact they hired only from outside to fill positions instead of promoting from with in. Departments don't get along with each other. There are difficult people at high positions who are staying put. Not really a friendly local...

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and pay market rate and give generous raises. Do more interdepartmental mixers team building. Get a new HR team and HR management as they are not liked within the company.
