    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 Management

    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.

  7. Good

    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 Management

    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

    Access to almost all benefits of employees, team building etc.
    Good intern welcoming traditions

    High responsibilities given to interns, very instructive

    Cons

    Almost not. Maybe traditionnal environment in some departments but nothing has bothered me I felt very well there.

    Advice to Management

    To keep this good atmosphere in there, it is the best internship environment I had and maybe to be more proactive in pushing good elements to the next steps in their recruitment process. As an intern, you have to be pretty proactive and network if you want to be in the next steps.
