    Pros

    Incredible growth opportunities, entrepreneurial spirit, systematic personal development program, impressive benefits, great work environment.

    Cons

    It's a very dynamic company, with a lots of acquisitions but also selling companies, brands and business units. You might be doing great in a business unit and will find out that was sold and now you work in a different environment. The top jobs are reserved for French executives (especially in Finance, as CFOs) or to a very small group of individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A dynamic company is a delight to work for, but the thinking about loyal employees overseas will be good from time to time when it's time to dispose a company. It's not just the French employees that matter, but the rest of them too. At the end, it's a global company. With Mr. Patrick Ricard (RIP) the company was very supportive of their global employees, not with Mr. Pringuet, it seems like the other way around.

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Product allowance is a big win - think 4-6 cases of wine/spirits every couple of months.
    Office culture = surrounded by smart people, you work hard and play hard.
    Work hours = you do work 1-2.5 hours overtime every day. But if you need to leave early or leave and come back for an appointment, it is never a problem.
    Recognition & reward: many recognition programs & lots of places to "promote" your wins
    Opportunities for career growth: plenty of room to grow and move and transfer into other departments

    Cons

    The pay isn't the best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay scales/pay bands should be more transparent. Taboo topic

    Pros

    Yearly Product Allotment of spirits and wine products. Yearly training opportunities. Management is genuinely supportive of your success and advancement

    Cons

    Not as much "net new" development as I would like. A lot of time spent supporting legacy code created with older technology.
