I worked at Red Bull part-time for more than a year

Pros

-Red Bull has one of the strongest brand identities and marketing strategies, bar none. If you're in marketing, you want this company on your resume. You'll also learn a lot.

-Fun events, an emphasis on creativity and breaking the usual rules

-Free Red Bull = awesome!

Cons

(Note that these cons are specific to being a student brand manager on a college campus)

-The rulebreaking spirit of Red Bull can also get its employees into trouble. They ask their reps to pull off questionable tasks that walk the line between legal and illegal. I almost got the cops called on me a few times for sneaking Red Bull branded stuff into places I shouldn't have.

- Support from HQ is limited. Small organizational structure, it's a 'do it yourself, don't screw up' attitude that not everyone enjoys.

- Limited room for advancement. Again, small hierarchy means you may get stuck in a grinding job without much of a pay bump to justify the hours. Student brand rep is a great flexible position, but past that, I'm not sure there are many.

    I worked at Red Bull full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fantastic and innovative company that is great to its employees (especially in salary and benefits) and has a great culture. Always something new and exciting when working with Red Bull. They take care of their employees and create a great work atmosphere.

    Cons

    I was with one of the company's various sports teams, so not sure about working on the beverage side. Did not have any cons on the sports teams side, but I do hear some comments about working on the beverage side (transitions and lack of communication). However, I cannot personally speak to those issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing!
