    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 hospitality floor.

    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.

    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.
