      Horrible work environment, Senior leadership out of touch with Reality

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great selection of wines from around the world. Excellent pay and benefits.

      Cons

      Once a company that everyone wanted to work for but new senior leadership has everyone running for the door. Unrealistic sales goals, extremely toxic work environment. No synergy between departments, constant threats of being written up, outdated style of micromanagement. Management talks through you not to you. Company no longer cares about the small mom and pop businesses that contributed to the early success of the organization.
