Pros

Growing company that will develop very strong brands via new emphasis on solid branding

Cons

Passive agressive management style with hidden agendas

Advice to Management

Clear feedback to employees regarding performance so they can gage their work. Avoiding honest feedback, or having personal agendas that disuades solid performance by staff does not help folks move forward.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    people are great and the brands are fantastic. There is a usually a young and ambitious environment in the office with diverse people making it a fun place to work. The culture is performance oriented and demanding but the people and brands make it easy to work there.

    Cons

    Consensus driven culture make the company not agile, and there are many layers of management that need to be won over and consulted before any initiative can be pushed through. Also, sometimes preference for career progression is based on who you know versus accomplishments and potential.

    Advice to Management

    Be more agile and action oriented

    Pros

    There are very few companies that provide terrific assignments, work life balance, adequate compensation, balanced comp package and fun. People grow if they want to and can switch locations, countries to gain so much experience. Workplace is fun when u sell adult beverages. There are always great get together and offsite meetings. In past few years, management has brought stability and terrific vision to grow brands, people and company. Senior management is groomed well to focus on people first and create a great people culture. All offices have full size bars and people socialize on thurdays over free drinks. If you want fun, this is the company to work for.

    Cons

    Big a big company brings its own challenges. The promotions come late as people never leave. Lot of money is wasted on initiatives that never deliver anything. Bureaucracy plagues a few groups. Global policies stifle innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Decentralize global groups and fire people who waste money on initiatives that fail to deliver results
