    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many of the people are lovely. Work conditions in the Australian office are good.

    Cons

    Long-lead times and many hands involved in marketing campaigns mean you are rewarded for perceived work rate (starting things) rather than end results. A campaign can be 18 months in the making and go through many hands. Also the CEO makes a lot of captains calls, so don't expect data driven decision making. Finally, the CEO really wants strong regional divisions and a global team that serve their needs. A HR person said to me they often rely on 'global' in titles to attract people while knowing that global marketing team actually have a lot less influence than in equivalent companies. Influence building is very much through personal relationships which are typically best built by overseas postings - so this takes years to build. These are all cons for me personally, but for a different personality type they could be pluses.

    Pros

    Great portfolio of brands, hard workers doing the best they can in difficult circumstances, despite not being rewarded. New office location in a great part of the city in Melbourne.

    Cons

    Where to start. What looks amazing with share price performance is masking the culture in the company which continues to decline. Continual job cuts in many areas of the business, but the work doesn’t go away it just gets given to others to do on top of their already busy schedule, and no financial reward for doing so. Bonuses are only for the senior managers while everyone else gets tiny salary increases despite strong results year after year, it’s not all about the shareholders guys! As for the senior leadership team, if you’re not a woman then good luck getting there. The TWEforShe program was a great step forward but in reality it’s the women senior leaders that get let go to be replaced by males. I used to love working here but it’s not the place it was, share price success has come at a cost and many I’ve spoken to are either looking elsewhere or hoping they are caught up in the next round of changes, which never seem far away.

    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great products, above average compensation, awesome modern Global Headquarters office and amenities.

    Cons

    The hubris and lack of empathy that is seen at all levels of the organization is extraordinary. Toxic culture and high staff turnover. Out tasking of core functions to Accenture will bite them long term.
