    I have been working at Nyetimber full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have worked for Nyetimber for over 10 years and I have found everyone from the CEO down really pleasant to work with and have never been happier in a company than I am now. With good communication via regular company staff days it makes for a good working environment, oh, and the discounted wine helps!!

    Cons

    For me I can honestly say there are none.

    I have been working at Nyetimber full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great salary, fantastic winemakers, superb offices in central London, lovely team/employees, one vision and high investment, a great energy and belief in the brand/product, possibilities of evolution within the team thanks to a growing brand. I'" having a great experience, it is making me grow a lot and had nothing but interesting interactions with the CEO

    Cons

    The CEO is a passionate man that invested everything in his product and in the brand. He is very rational and very involved, so all the Marketing decisions have to be put to him, even with the best arguments in the world, this company is his "baby" and he's the ultimate decision maker. The approach is therefore more commercial and from a marketing point of view based on rational reasons to believe more than on emotional factors

    I worked at Nyetimber full-time

    Pros

    The winemakers are brilliant. Making world class wines that stand out above the rest. Most people who are working there are really great at their jobs. Just a shame they won't be there long!

    Cons

    Where do we start! No notable benefits to speak off. Some discount on wines, but limited to handful of cases per year. Senior management with zero people skills or management skills. Vanity is the name of the game at Nyetimber. And doing what you're told.

    I worked at Nyetimber full-time

    Pros

    Fabulous settings, reasonable salaries, discounts on some of the wine.

    Cons

    Management is unprofessional, unfriendly and poor. A HUGE turnover of staff mainly down to either the unfair dismissals or employees seeing sense and leaving. A stressful and unstable place to work, no one feels safe in their job because of the CEO, it really doesn't matter how good you are in your role!! Unfortunately the CEO has no morals or conscience just more money than sense.

    I have been working at Nyetimber

    Pros

    You get a good tan from working outdoors. The company have an optional pension scheme.

    Cons

    The upper management do not listen to lower management nor do they fully understand what they or others are doing. The phrase "winging it" comes to mind. The company jumps to point out when people do things wrong but ignores areas where they know things are less than a basic standard for a working environment.

    I worked at Nyetimber full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A fantastic product, made by excellent winemakers and being represented by a solid and professional sales and marketing team. Stunning locations both at the estate in Sussex and in the Mayfair offices.

    Cons

    The owner has no idea about the wine industry, common courtesy, basic manners, etiquette, how to speak to people, or anything else. He creates a noxious and poisonous environment that results in horrendous morale and a very high staff turnover. He also has a habit of insulting people from the industry and then being upset when they refuse to list the brand in their account.

    I worked at Nyetimber for more than a year

    Pros

    A beautiful Mayfair location with stunningly manicured grounds in the Sussex countryside. Some excellent albeit under-appreciated staff.

    Cons

    An incurably sick company due to the tumor being located inoperably at the head of the company. The owner is a man whose ignorance is exceed only by his inability to empathise with other people. His adolescent ego is protected at the expense of everything else by a scared but callous cabal of upper management facilitators, resulting in a truly shocking corporate morale, and a prolific turnover of staff.

    I worked at Nyetimber full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    nice London location, lovely rural location and interesting to be part of emerging UK wine industry in which there are exciting opportunities, great marketing / sales

    Cons

    appalling morale, economically disastrous turnover of staff, ad hoc and hysterical management pattern, inability to recognize, nurture and develop talented staff, held in extremely low regard by local rural community which precludes best & brightest rural youth from joining the company - a huge disadvantage in terms of recruitment........overall a dysfunctional and unsustainable situation
