    I worked at Beam Global Spirits & Wine full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fun and friendly environment with great sales for across the county. Hours could be long, but as I always felt part of a team, I was happy to put them in. HQ roles in Deerfield appeared to be more corporate, but if you got the right role (supporting sales or marketing) it could be a great experience.

    Cons

    Company would spend a ridiculous amount on consulting services to find out where they could save money by firing people. Each year there would be a new cull. They should trust their management structure more to make the right decisions on such matters. Following stock market flotation, company became less focused on workers and more on shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let go of a positive culture. Company should be able to post strong results while also maintaining a fun working environment.
