    I have been working at Trinchero Family Estates full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    More forced OT then you want!

    Cons

    Company does not give you any sick time. When you get sick you have to use your vacation time, then they put you out on disability. Management says they care about employees and are a family type company. No way. They take as much as they can from you. When you need them, you are on your own.

    I worked at Trinchero Family Estates full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Had to relocate out of state for family reasons- great company culture, creative environment and will greatly miss the people I worked with in California / TFE.

    Cons

    Had to relocate out of state for family reasons, but the earthquakes, wildfires and rain season isn't something I will necessarily miss about California.

    Pros

    Trinchero is a growing organization that is maturing its IT organization for the digital world. Because of this, it is a great time to be a part of the team, getting to work on exciting new technologies.

    Cons

    Because the company has grown quickly over the past decade, there are still some organizations and processes that are not scaled up yet and can make it a little more difficult to get things done.

    I worked at Trinchero Family Estates full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly environment and coworkers. Absolutely treat employees well. If you need something, they're more than accommodating to try and get it for you. Benefits retirement were both above industry standard.

    Cons

    Chance of additional pay (ie bonuses) wasn't really there, nor were raises. Management didn't dive too deep on training, and was often vague on initial expectations. Department system was no good. Because some people were used to something, it wouldn't change; even though it may have been the wrong way to approach things. This would make it difficult to adapt to the way things operated, impacting the work of others.
