Amazing work experience

Corporate (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Pernod Ricard USA full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCulture (convivial, team focus, yet performance driven), amazing brands with a premium positioning, potential for career development including international, training, competitive compensation and awesome benefits. Definitively, the best company I ever worked at.

ConsVery intense, at times too many projects being managed at same time, sense of urgency for most projects. Some brands are being challenged in the marketplace and the company needs to bring successful innovations or acquisitions.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring more resources to get to our ambition. Otherwise, great leadership and culture.

Limited growth potential and general inability to change ways of working

FInance (Former Employee)

I worked at Pernod Ricard USA full-time

ProsBrand teams and support for brands are supportive and open t new team members. There is a general willingness to help others succeed.

ConsThe finance team lacks opportunities for advancement, as well as several individuals who have been in their roles for a significant amount of time are reluctant to change. High turnover (for both internal and external roles) on certain teams due to management.

Advice to Senior ManagementReview individuals backgrounds and utilize their strengths in new roles; sometimes this may involve taking a risk.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
