      Great Family to work for!

      Pros

      As a private company, the Gallo family's values permeate the company and make you feel like an extended member of the family. There is great opportunity for personal advancement, career growth, and alternative job assignments. As a family run company there is also a culture of work-life balance with a belief that family comes first and it is important to have fun while we work hard for the company.

      Cons

      Gallo's corporate location is not a destination of choice for many young professionals but the small community is a great place to raise children and there are so many wonderful day trips available to nearby destinations.

      Pros

      -Decent Pay for Central Valley -Great company culture in the Finance/Accounting Departments -You can jump around every 1-1.5 Years to find what part of the business you like

      Cons

      -No clear direction of where the company wants to go -Systems and data issues are rampant in certain areas of finance -System integration is not a strong suit for a company that just moved ERP systems and sales data systems

      All around solid, but the company could grow exponentially if they became more progressive.

      Pros

      A super laid-back work environment that, compared to other jobs, is not stressful. The workload is manageable. Most managers are understanding and flexible. Working in the alcohol industry is certainly cool and has its perks.

      Cons

      The lack of awareness and inability to be progressive. Try way too hard to continue being a "small family winery" when the company is getting too big to operate that way. The inability to do any corporate-level job (i.e. finance, marketing, design, etc.) from a different location is extremely unattractive considering Modesto is not a great place to live for young professionals. Also, a lot of people want to work remotely nowadays...totally depends on the team but it's clear that being majority remote is frowned upon. Times are changing; other companies are offering fully-remote work. Gallo sells cool products that a lot of young people know. Being more in tune with the times and requiring people to work in Modesto can do wonders for the company. Understandably, management realizes that people from the Central Valley schools/some other California schools would kill to work at the company but are you really creating a diverse workforce with different perspectives if you are hiring from the same schools?

      Pros

      Gallo is a great job that is unique for these times.

      Cons

      I really do not have any cons except perhaps that long time employees don’t realize how great of a company Gallo is.
