    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.

    Pros

    HR benefits are excellent. Good healthcare coverage, dental, vision, education reimbursement and 401k,. Additional health benefits for gym as well as wellness seminars. There is an excellent culture. The people are great to work with.

    Cons

    As many companies, the experience directly relates to your division. Some areas are very flexible for work life balance while others are not. There are no official work from home policies. Re-organizations are common.

    I have been working at Pernod Ricard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The fiscal compensation is near average for the area, but not exceptional. The facilities and work atmosphere are clean and up to date. Product allotment is fair.

    Cons

    Work life balance is difficult to maintain. There is a very large, unstated, push to work many hours of overtime for salaried employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little bit of positive encouragement goes a long way, and is worth the time.

    Pros

    Very entrepreneural environment. Incredibly interesting industry. At its core this a marketing company. A high value is placed on creativity. This is however a strong focus on responsible marketing of beverage alcohol products. Having fun is a part of the business culture.

    Cons

    The company is still "growing" into its status as a major player in the industry. Most of the outward faciing elements are in place and working well - sales and distribution strategies. Marketing which is key to growth is some what less dynamic compared to competition.

    Pros

    A very strong corporate culture in relation to finance and investor relations. Understands the value of demonstrating forward thinking as a way to ensure "no surprises" for authorities and shareholders.

    Cons

    The de-centralised business model allows for flexibility and innovation at a local level but does create a level of risk to operations in terms of resources and influence.
