    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Aside from the fantastic people and the great product portfolio that usually stand out as great reasons to work for Gallo, the company's response to the COVID pandemic and the social injustices being brought to light right now across the country have been outstanding. Between donations and actions, it's hard not to be proud of working here. I've felt supported during the pandemic, and have seen innovative pivots across all departments that make me confident about our weathering of the storm.

    Cons

    Sometimes work/life balance can be a struggle, especially with everyone working from home.

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This family run company clearly prioritizes the needs and interests of its employees. That leads to happy employees who enjoy working hard toward a common goal and allows creativity to flow freely leading to innovation and growth. There is an emphasis on work/life balance and plenty of opportunity for growth when you achieve at a high level.

    Cons

    I can't think of one.

    I have been working at E. & J. Gallo Winery full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Gallo is family owned and that culture transcends throughout every level of the organization. Additionally, throughout CV19 and BLM our leadership (led by family members) welcomed feedback, ideas, and embraced positive culture changes to make our company more inclusive/diverse while still focusing on results. The focus was on leading with EMPATHY, which will ultimately lead to increased sales. Also, I want to mention that Gallo takes care of their own and does what is right by employees. Last year we updated one of our systems which created a lag in product delivery. We missed some of our sales targets as a result, and the family stepped up and increased our bonuses. Overall, Gallo is a fantastic place to work and is full of competitive/driven people who bring the best out of each other. We. Are. Family.

    Cons

    At times the hours are long and travel can be challenging with family. One positive with this is that your schedule is flexible. I hope our company continues to create opportunities for people even outside of our biggest markets. We are all about family and many people would like to live closer to their own families when possible. I think our company is moving in a better direction here vs. years past.

    Feeling of Family and that the company truly cares about you as a person. Empathy and compassion is part of the core- treat everyone as you would want to be treated. Work/Life balance- flexibility is amazing

    Cons

    It's still a "good old boys club". Favoritism is played for available positions and promotions. Qualifications for positions only matter if they don't want you in that role, they are willing to break the minimum qualifiers for some but not all.
