    I worked at Wine.com as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The upper level management takes the time to get to know their company on all levels; temps up to the top.

    Cons

    There is not much to say. The company is successful and like any successful business there requires hard work. However working hard never hurt anybody.

    Family atmosphere, everybody willing to help each other out.

    low pay, repetition work but that's how warehouse work is.

    The management is great. I was teaching seniority workers to adjust to be more efficient. I knew my worth so I left.

    Pros

    Great corporate climate, owner and CEO. All follow an enthusiastic and "can-do" attitude that makes all encounters upbeat and fun. Management is genuinely interested in making improvements in all ways.

    Cons

    The HR manager had confusing habits & behaviors (two years ago) after I was hired. She and her assistant were very odd with people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more connected with your warehouse and how it is managed, especially in regards to seasonal hires, "pep-talks "and the way the people over there are treated in general. Better selling software that does not breakdown during peak season would also be great for wine.com. There is a giant hole in the pre-season training to be ready for the holidays. I am guessing you have upgraded your HR people as well as your selling software by now.

    Pros

    Lots of wine tastings
    Great work/life balance
    Great CEO
    Fun group of people, especially at company outings
    If you're looking to do the same thing day in and day out, this is the place for you!

    Cons

    Very little room for advancement or promotion, unless you're a Wine Merchant.
    No upward mobility for supporting departments-e.g. Marketing, Finance, IT, etc. If you work in one of these departments, then you're pretty much stuck in that same position and department. Very little moving from one department to another.
    Not a lot of training or structure. Just jump in and do it.
    No career development.
    Benefits are Ok. No matching 401K.
    A lot of talk, but very little action when it comes to improving various aspects about the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look around you and notice how hard others work - not just the wine merchants.
