management (Former Employee) – St. Helena, CA – January 19, 2016
This place is laughable. If you care anything about your own wellbeing this is not the place. The organization is constantly re-organizing management and staff, and if you are not able to navigate through all the different egos and styles, you will be in jeopardy of losing your job, which has it's own stresses.
Classic cooperate winemaking. The place works off of recipes and no winemaker ever needs to even walk in to the cellar. The new folks especially at Beringer just make wine from there computer screens upstairs rather than actually participate in the process.
Egos galore! With very little respect for the hardworking folks that actually do all the labor,
Interns avoid this company like the plague, too much back-biting, and miserable people to make this a fun place to work.
Safety (Former Employee) – Napa, CA – May 14, 2015
Interesting job to have but uneasy at the same time. Very competitive and political, but has its perks. Working for this company will bring something different to your work life, always something to talk about.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Napa, CA – April 8, 2015
After being told that the work climate is in a state of change for the better, I quickly found out that that is not the case. I witnessed nepotism, discrimination and many forms of favoritism. When I addressed them, as I was requested to do, my imediate superiors began to treat me differently, and started scheduling me extra days, and even falsifying reports as to my attendance. I was able to get positive results, better performance numbers and a more equipped team in 2 months of employment there than the manager who terminated me had in 3 years. I could finish my daily duties and start working on my peers projects in 8.5 hours, but the manager demanded I stay a minimum of 10 hours, in order to give the appearance to the director that "we" are fulfilling our obligations.
Great benefits within the industry and other companies.
longer than necessary hours, poor communication, lack of leadership, lack of organization.
Packaging Technician I (Current Employee) – Napa, CA – March 18, 2015
I have worked for Treasury/ Beringer for 15 years. I have learned well from the excellent people I have worked with and have enjoyed the Inventory Process and the learning from all different cultures and peoples.

Sales & Hospitality Specialist (Former Employee) – Napa, CA – November 24, 2014
Lower level management is typically friendly and easy to work with, however it seems like corporate is incredibly disorganized, and they make very questionable decisions. TWE has been struggling for a long time, but a job at one of the wineries is a good place to be.
great wineries. good people.
no advancement into better positions. corporate culture is very bizarre.
Supply Chain Planning Analyst (Former Employee) – Napa, CA – March 7, 2014
I worked at Treasury for over 5 years. When I started I thought I landed in heaven. My superiors and co-workers were awesome then things began to change. Outsiders were brought in at director and VP roles that were very negative and only wanted to lay off people.
The outsiders brought in their non performing friends to act as yes men and women. With the constant pending layoffs everyone is afraid and always looking for another job.
The damage has been done and it would take a miracle to right the ship at this point. It's no secret that the company may be divided and sold off in pieces.
I worked as a temporary employee for TWE and was treated horribly by the Manager in the department I was working in. Basically, if they like you and you fit into their click, you are in, if not watch your back! It shocks me that a corporation like this would even keep someone on staff that functions this way and treats their employees so horribly, what does that say about TWE?
free stuff every now and then, benefits, decent pay
Supply Chain Planning Analyst (Former Employee) – Napa, CA – July 1, 2013
Treasury is a very political place to work. Doesn't matter if you are a good employee or not, If you're not part of the circle and don't know how to keep the upper management happy by agreeing to whatever they say, then you are out. Its the most stressful place that I have worked in the last 10 years.
Very lean corporate business model based on analysts, distributor execution and spend per case.
Market Manager (Former Employee) – Northern California – January 3, 2013
My experience with Treasury Wine Estates was extremely positive for the first 3 years I was there. Everyone had a job to do and you were left alone to complete the task. Groups and individuals were recognized for above average performance and the culture of the company was one of a family all working towards the same goal.
The company went through tremendous change over the past two years and as a result, a more corporate modeled structure was implemented where micro management and analysts were valued higher then sales experience and market relationships.
great wines, large supplier with extended distributor focus, nielsen driven
very poor work/life balance, constantly reorganizing and eliminating positions, little recognition
