I worked at Beam Global Spirits & Wine

Pros

High profile brand. Some good people to work with and can be a fun atmosphere at times. New CEO seems like he's on the right track.

Cons

Too many meetings without a clear focus. Not enough feedback and dialogue between management and staff. People don't communicate between departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lack of quality leadership in key management roles. Need better communication between managers and employees. Seems like the company is going in too many directions, lack of focus.

    I have been working at Beam Global Spirits & Wine

    Pros

    The people, the brands, the industry. The organization is on track for growth and has been making significant improvement in leadership despite challenges. Everyone is now rowing in the right direction and the cynics have been eliminated.

    Cons

    Change, lack of data due to industry, sales led orgnanization vs. brand led.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep moving forward. Changes you are making are good. Vision is right, support us and be visible.
