    Pros

    TWE is invested in their people, with a strong focus on development and career progression in the business. The senior management are all smart, fair people who treat their teams with respect. The business is growing quickly and there are many opportunities to thrive. With a global footprint, the business encourages transfers to other offices if employees are so inclined. Lot's to learn and a great culture, second to none.

    Cons

    short term sales driven organization - very reactive, tactical, small budgets

    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Hard working people
    - Great wines
    - Generous product allowance and staff pricing
    - Working at pace
    - Internal training and courses

    Cons

    - Creativity or challenging the status quo aren't valued. People who challenge fall out of favour quickly.
    - A small group of senior leaders make all the decisions. There is little trust or belief in staff.
    - Zero fat in the organisation. Everyone works at over capacity leading to poor work life balance and negativity when staff are constantly asked to go the extra mile but are not recognised or rewarded for it.
    - Executive Leadership Team members are not inspirational but they are a product of the environment. They are at mercy of the CEO and have to execute what he says or else..!
    - Long term strategic vision is secondary to short term sales gains.

    Pros

    High level of dedicated people, great brands,

    Cons

    Not enough people to do the job, the hours are enormous at times. Senior leadership operates in a little bubble.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the hard working people and stop appointing old mates into key roles, you will only have yes people.

    Pros

    Wine allowance. Nothing more to say.

    Cons

    Culturally, this was such a great company. The past few years has seen a merry go round of staff changes with some extremely poor choices in leadership for the Company's South Australian operations. Individual opinion and expertise is no longer valued and the senior leadership team has surrounded itself with 'yes' people who have no idea of what they're doing. Such a pity to see what was once a culture that valued and respected individuals destroyed.

    Advice to Management

    Values are so important to building great teams. I saw very little of that. Adopt values and regain the respect of your workforce.

    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Fantastic Marketing department both within the ANZ and Regional teams, level of skill and marketing expertise is exceptional
    - Company is shifting towards being a Marketing led company
    - Lots of growth and development opportunities
    - Strong stable of wine brands
    - Staff discount on wine
    - Flexibility especially for working mothers
    - Impressive investment in formal training and development that all employees can access

    Cons

    - Fast-paced and high pressure environment with new projects cropping up unexpectedly or the goal post changing overnight
    - Lean brand teams
    - Stifling sense of brand ownership from partnering creative agencies who view themselves as the Brand Managers and custodians of the brands
    - A very corporate, nuts-and-bolts FMCG environment with a heavy focus on process, hierarchy and continual cost savings / budget cuts. Not the best environment for those who thrive on creativity

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up with the wonderful focus on formal training and development on offer
    - Align increased expectations with increased marketing budgets
