    Pros

    Focused executive team. Share price has doubled in 12 months. Great Brands, great people, great wines. Exciting few years ahead

    Cons

    Lost their way in the early years post the separation with Fosters and took to long at the top level for this to be realised. It does appear they have learned from their mistakes

    Advice to Management

    Current plan working well, keep up the investiment in people as this will earn you the best returns in the long run

    Fairly good Work life balance, nice portfolio of wines, some lovely people... and some nice offices and vineyards. Struggle to think of any other pro

    Secretive and calculative.

    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Heavily discounted wine, opportunity to spend time in beautiful wine country, and to work with global brands.

    Cons

    Large bullying culture. People see bad behaviour and do not try to stop it, which is pretty disgraceful. It was like being back at high school.

    There is a disconnect between upper management and general staff. Employees are underpaid and annual performance merit is a slap in the face.

    It's a one of a kind experience to work at TWE as it's a lifestyle career, but you must go in with a thick skin.

    Advice to Management

    Create company values and live them. There was a lot of talk and no action, and little is done for talent retention.

    Pros

    TWE has a great head office, with open plan and plenty of light. They have greats wIne, brands, location, regions, global reach. CEO has really turned the place around in the last 2 years. Willing to make big changes to chase improvement

    Cons

    Mixed direction in strategy and lots big ideas pitched to the business but often these fall short of the mark. Need to remember that we are a wine business that is at the mercy of the envirnoment to produce high quality fruit

    Advice to Management

    Doing well, much better in the past 12 months. Need to ensure the whole business is aware of and is working towards the same set of priorities.

    I have been working at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunities for high performers, great brands & product, great people & culture. Very collaborative environment where most people are willing to lend a hand and help out if you need. Some brilliant minds in the business.

    Cons

    Disorganised, many grey areas and lack of direction and process at times. Leadership needs to more more focussed on strategy and less on execution. Could definitely be extracting more value out of employees with clear strategies and direction and better planning.

    Advice to Management

    Use the skill of your people, and allow them to do their thing (within guardrails). There are very clever people in the organisation that would flourish with more autonomy if they had greater direction and clear plans

    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great brands, good people, hard workers at lower level. Great head office. Penfolds what a brand to have and drink.

    Cons

    CEO and leadership continue to play the political game and leave no prisoners. Could be made redundant at anytime.
    50/50 deal with trebuchet went no where and cost relationships with major customers. All staff lost there STIP if you were on band 4 or less. Continue to dump juice. Wine Tiger going no where. Same old sales managers from Southcorp days that need to be moved on for fresh ideas.
    Penfolds is a separate entity now so something is up. Penfolds is actually 68% of there whole portfolio to the bottom line which means heaps of garbage brands sitting around.
    3.1million in slow moving stock.
    Wolf Blass could be getting sold off.

    Advice to Management

    Export area should be payed double after mess they have been left with from decisions from the leadership team.

    I worked at Treasury Wine Estates full-time

    Pros

    Great pay. Good Early Intervention Programme. Product vouchers. Discounted product for you and friends and family via online Cellardoor. Excellent training programme.

    Cons

    Could be made redundant at the drop of a hat, no alternative position offered. Product voucher value hasn't changed in ten years.
    Nepotism is rampant at some sites. Bullying is openly tolerated at some sites, and is not addressed appropriately by site management.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO EMPLOYEES. See what is happening and act on it. Do not play favourites. Stamp out nepotism and bullying.Use the Shout Outs. Too many employees are being ignored and feel un-appreciated as a consequence.

    I have been working at Treasury Wine Estates part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One thing i have found is that they look after there employees,health and well being,They do health checks and provide prescription glasses if needed after qualifying period,they also supply all the safety gear needed to perform your duties,

    Cons

    we have monthly safety meetings with a BBQ first,we also have a break up at the end of harvest,i can only say that both are very cheaply done,example i was the gang boss at our last harvest,by the time i dropped of the trailer and parked the tractor and got to the break up there was no bread to have with the snags,also felt eyes watching if you had more than 2 cans of bear,make you feel uneasy.

    Advice to Management

    Thank workers if you know that they have done a good job and do not be to much of a penny pincher at the after harvest break ups,That does not in still good harmony in your work force.
